Thinking Of Upgrading Your WordPress Plan In 2020? Read This First (Part 1) — lifesfinewhine

I don’t know if you guys remember but I upgraded my plan to Premium when I reached 10k and then stupidly upgraded again to Business which was a horrible idea and almost destroyed this blog I had worked so hard for. A lot of people do decide to upgrade their plan for the new year […]

    • You are welcome. When you get part 2 done, I will re-blog it as I plan on upgrading at some point. I have the free plan right now, but some of what I want to do requires me upgrading to the Business plan. I expect it will take a couple of years to start making money going that route, but with the two cheaper paid plans, there are some things I can’t do. Figure if I am going to spend the money,

        Yeah like if you plan on installing plugins you’ll need the Business Plan. Good luck with the upgrading and hope the posts help!

      • It did. The only reason I am considering the Business Plan is to monetize my blog, it’s the cheapest option. One day, years from now, I would go with the most expensive plan if I ever get my YouTube channel off the ground.

        A word of caution, install plug-in updates one at a time. I had a paid plan through a reseller. Did several plug-in updates at once. One killed my old blog. I had stopped using the reseller and they wouldn’t help me. The plug-in site wouldn’t help me, but from the error message, it was their plug-in causing me to not use my blog. I was glad I backed up my blog to my computer shortly before doing the update. I restored most of my posts. Don’t think it included the Likes or Follows, but small price to pay.

        Yeah I think a Business Plan would be best for that and good luck with YouTube!

        Yeah you have to be very careful. I lost a few of my likes and comments from some of my posts because of a problem with downgrading and I learnt my lesson!

      • I doubt WordPress will consider it, but I would prefer a monthly plan where I spend a bit more/month than the yearly plan monthly average price.

        I considered going with one of the resellers – GoDaddy, BlueHost, as they offer a good deal on your first sign-up, but when you renew, it’s cheaper to switch back to WordPress. You may risk losing Likes and Comments switching back.


    • I just saw Part 2, will re-blog it in the morning.
