Everything About WordPress Plans 2

If you’re not sure whether to upgrade or not read the first part of this post by clicking here.
So you’ve decided to upgrade but aren’t sure what plan would be perfect for you? Well than this post should help. I realised quickly that WordPress doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about it’s plans and to stop others from going through what I did I want to help you pick the perfect plan for you. I ended up picking the wrong one and having to downgrade which led me to lose my likes and comments for the posts I did while on my new plan because they promised to backup the data but for some reason it didn’t work out. It could have been a lot worse especially because the help team was literally like “yeah sorry we can’t help you we don’t know how to fix this…” Anyway here is the inside scoop on all the plans to help you decide what’s right for you!
The Personal Plan
What they say you get on WordPress

Free Domain for One Year
Jetpack Essential Features
Email & Live Chat Support
Dozens of Free Themes
Basic Design Customization
6 GB Storage Space
Remove WordPress.com Ads

My Thoughts
In my opinion if you started a blog as more of a hobby and have the budget to give it a little glow-up this is the plan for you. It’s not great if you want to blog professionally because you don’t get a .com site and a lot of the extra features offered on the other plans to help customize you site.

My Thoughts
This is the plan that I’m currently using and I really love it. It’s quite affordable compared to the Business Plan and has almost all the same features from what I’ve noticed. If you want to transition into becoming a full time blogger I would highly recommend this plan. It allows you to use any theme available on WordPress and customize it to an extent. It also gives you a payment button which is useful if you want to make money off your blog.

My Thoughts
I tried this plan and honestly I hated it. The main pro is that you get plugins and get more control over over what your blog looks like. The main problem I had with this plan is that you lose your follow button- the one at the bottom right. I feel like this button is very useful for gaining new followers and it’s ridiculous that they don’t have it in this plan. Another problem I had was that it seemed to slow down my blog- I don’t know if this happened to anyone else on this plan but it did for my blog so just giving you a heads up. For the price I also didn’t think it had many useful features that you can’t get on the Premium Plan. I would recommend this plan if you already earn a good amount of income off your blog and are a professional blogger who needs specific features only offered on this plan.

Never tried this plan but I think it would be best suited for someone thinking of selling something on their blog. Unless you are planning on selling something I would highly recommend not getting this plan.
