I am back WordPress…

Jason a/k/a Opinionated Man, has moved back to WordPress.com! I’m curious about the reason for the change, since he was so excited when he decided to self-host, but I guess the HarsH ReaLiTies (sorry, could not resist) of self-hosting must have gotten to him after awhile. I know I wouldn’t want to try it.

I’m secretly glad he’s moving back, because somehow, when he was self hosted, he seemed somehow farther away and less accessible to all of us newbies, scaredy-cats, and technophobes still on WP.com.

Welcome back, Jason!

HarsH ReaLiTy

HarsH ReaLiTy is back on WordPress.com again. My website https://aopinionatedman.com/ and https://aopinionatedman.wordpress..com/ are once again the same website. Thanks for your patience.

I know, I know. People missed me being on this platform so much…

About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

  1. Hmmm…I find this kind of funny, since I almost did this myself last weekend–but then switched hosting providers and all my troubles ended. But then somebody else does it instead! 🙂

      Maybe you still will! One thing i love about WP.com is the sense of community. I would really miss that a lot if I ever went self hosted, but I think all the technical stuff would really put me off. But I can understand the appeal of being self hosted too. I think if I ever did it, I’d hire someone to do all the tech stuff for me, troubleshoot, etc. I can’t afford it now though. I’m glad your new hosting provider is working out better though.

      • Yeah, I get to keep my Google Analytics and Statcounter, and feed my stat addiction! 😉 I can also continue with Project Wonderful ads instead of following the dictates of the corporate overlords. 😉

        But yeah, I have thought about switching some time in the future, like when I get old, and let it live on for as long as WordPress.com lasts. Otherwise, it’ll go offline when I do. 😛

          I do think the Google analytics thing and enhanced stat info would be a huge draw. I’m a geek and addicted to that stuff too. I know Alexa sucks, but I have their toolbar because it gives me some information the WP.com stats do not. You might also have noticed the little “My Visitors” widget I have down in the bottom of my sidebar, which is super cool. If you click it on, you can see, in real time, yoru visitors as they come on, and what countries and cities they are coming from. Also how many times they have visited. I remember after installing it, I just sat and watched my traffic for about 2 hours, lol!

    I’m glad OM has decided to make the switch back. I dunno why but he ws less accessible at his new blog in that I didn’t always get notifications via email and he was not always in the reader

    Hello, I have spoken with you before on WordPress 🙂 Anyway, I need to ask you a question, but it’s not something I want to ask in public as its about Narcissists and the FM’s… Is somewhere I might contact you?
    Thank you,
    Tamara ❤
