I like WordPress.com Better

Just a little note to all those people who have been told Wordpress.org is better. I have found after two years of experimentation, that Wordpress.com is better.

After trying WordPress.org and WordPress.com for two years, I think WordPress.com is better.

Every time I tried to get any help from a host (other than WordPress.com), the host offered to build me a web site for $5,000 or more.  It has happened two times.

Building a Web Site is Hard

I even built a web site on wordpress.org — buttpillow.com — and I haven’t been able to do anything with it.  I paid extra to have the best firewall and used Gutenberg, but allegedly Gutenberg was taking up too much space; so If my firewall is up, all my pages get re-routed with errors.

Right now my firewall is down so I can’t sell anything.   I still don’t have a cart after almost a year because my firewall cannot be used even though I paid for it.  When I called to troubleshoot about the firewall situation recently, of course, they advised since I built buttpillow.com myself, they would need to rebuild it for $5,000 or more since they will not attach a cart to a web site unless they build said web site.

Moving Content Back to WordPress.com

I am in the process of moving the content from Buttpillow.com to buttpillows.net and then will set up my cart.

I hired a different expert to do the cart on Buttpillow.com, which is on WordPress.org Gutenberg.  We’ll see how that works out.

Just a little note to all those people that have been told WordPress.org is so much better than WordPress.com. . .I find it to be the opposite.

I was a court reporter for 10 years then became an inventor. I invented The Buttpillow® and was granted a patent called the "Pillow with Cantilever Supports." At the same time, I also submitted a patent application for "The Carpal Tunnel Chair," which I was advised I did not get. After R&D on The Buttpillow®, I submitted another patent application for the "Ergonomic Seating Cushion" was filed and later amended to include an embodiment for women during pregnancy. The USPTO granted the "Ergonomic Seating Cushion" patent in late 2002. Subsequently, in 2003, I also invented Ergosoft™ break reminder software to remind people to take breaks with an Ergo-Tip™ so people can identify and minimize ergonomic risk factors around them.
