Website Update: Guest Authors, Comments On. From Blogger to Thrive Themes, Siteground, and WordPress
We recently did a major overhaul to our main site here at The Personal Growth Channel. For years, we've been using the free blogger platform from google, which is where this personal development community started.
This week we took a gigantic leap forward by migrating everything to SiteGround with WordPress and Thrive Themes.
So far I'm very happy with the results. It was a tough migration, with hundreds of articles and many pages to convert, but we're up and running! If you find anything odd just let us know.
There are quite a number of new features available to our members. First of all, after being turned off for a long time, comments are back on! You even have the chance to earn badges for participation. You can up-vote the most insightful comments, Reddit style. Be sure to try it out!
We have also implemented a formal guest author protocol, designed to allow others in our community to contribute meaningful articles in the personal and professional development space.
The integrated store is also open for business! You can get items such as a mastermind group template, our balance workbook, and our healthy habits course.
With this update, we now can move forward with a wide variety of upgrades that I've wanted to do for a long time. Stay tuned!
