  1. Love the last one! This is really helpful I just started a self hosted one and feel so clueless because most of my communication is from here. I love talking and rambling a lot and I absolutely love comments and seeing others works. Which is rather hard to do on self hosted. I get the views but I cant communicate as much as Id like to like I do on here. So confused now

    1. Aww! If hosted is bringing in better communication and interaction for you and that’s something which is a top priority for you, it might help to migrate all your content to your hosted platform and work on building that. Hosted is working better for me too!

      1. Yes I just thought that since all over the internet people said self hosted is better I think I love this better. Communication is more of a priority. Idk if Ill go back but right now here is wonderful 🙂
        Have a great day and thanks for these. Really put a lot into perspective

      2. I suppose it’s all about what you’re trying to achieve with your blog so for different people different platforms will be best suited. You too! Glad this post was useful! 🤗

  2. Hello, I am an Indian medical student soon to appear for her first year university exams. I decided to start a blog to share my journey and my love of books. Your blog inspired me. Do check mine out. 😊

  3. Asalaamu’alaikum,

    It’s been lovely reading your posts and thanks for this one, its been very useful.

    I started blogging a few years ago before I started medicine and now almost at the end of my medical school journey I’ve decided to start blogging again, alhamdulilah.

    I have a small technical question – how do you add the subscribing feature to your wordpress page?

    My blogs link is if you ever want to pop by page 🙂 x

    1. Walaikum salaam. Thank you – love the themes that you’re planning on having running through your blog 💞

      The subscribing feature, it comes as a widget – it’s already built in to wordpress so you can just select the subscribing widget and put it wherever you want! ☺️


  4. Thank you so much for this series (and the whole blog in general!) I found it so useful when applying to uni, and really inspiring in starting my own blog. I’m not sure if I would have ever found the courage to start writing online without this! ☺
