My First Post on WordPress. Back to the Basics.

Good afternoon!

This is my first post on my new WordPress platform. It took me a while because I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing. And honestly, I still don’t. I wanted to let you all know that all is still well.

blogger-logo-smallWhy did I move from Blogger? I actually got tired of hearing that WordPress is the STUFF! WordPress this & WordPress that! You can do this and you can do that! I felt like, really?! I was a happy with Blogger but I visit alot of blogs and I see the range in looks, style, and more. I know I can’t do those things with Blogger, so I needed to move. I want my blog around for a long time in addition to it being a quality source of information so I felt it was time to change. Oh! And the free year of hosting didn’t hurt.wordpress-logo-stacked-rgb

Who moved me? I signed up for a blogging class with Blogelina and they offered everyone who did, a FREE year of hosting with After asking a few bloggers their thoughts about the deal, I decided now was the time to take the leap. I already had the website name and a year of hosting, now all I needed do to was move! Blogelina moved me as well. I did have to pay a small fee for that but I also got a $25 off discount.  They moved me in one day! I was very impressed. And my site looks just like Blogger but a little more polished! I am very happy with the transfer – now it’s up to me to learn WordPress. In the coming months, I might change my look altogether. I might.

Back to the basics of Bernetta Style…..

Have you ever started out doing something and some way or another you changed slightly? Or got a little off track? Just a little? That’s how I feel with I started my blog with the premise of Living Smart, Simple & Stylish and feel I got away from it. Just a little. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind posting about me – here and there. But I also want to continue to keep you informed of other things as well.

New Blog. Back on track! To just review: was started with one sole purpose in mind, “to inform”  consumers that it is possible to “Live Smart” – To Bernetta this means, basically making good choices.  In order to make good choices you need the right information and at the right time.  “Live Simple” – Do you have things just to say you have things?  Clear out the clutter!  Don’t be a hoarder!  Live Stylish – It’s not how much you spend on a thing, it’s your TASTE!  With, Bernetta is not telling you where to shop but merely, to shop “how I shop”, which means “Find the best deal!”

Thanks for your support thus far! I love the blogging community!

    There is a bit of a learning curve but it will take no time to get up to speed. Even though you kept the same design it just looks cleaner on WordPress.

    I feel you on getting away from where you started but sometimes things evolve to where they need to be. I think the blog fits you and is informative

    I’ve been going through the exact same thing! But I LOVE Blogger. I need a change but it seems like it’s too hard to understand.

      How long have you been on Blogger. I felt I was just getting the hang of Blogger myself.
      I will just have to take my time with WordPress.
