  1. Hi there 🙂 i was wondering if you could help me to decide if i should put my story on a blog like yours or just keep on posting on watt pad? i’m not even sure about any of the options i gave you.

    • I think it depends on what you want.
      If you want to get a lot of readers for your work or to try to get a lot of readers, you should post to Wattpad.

      If you want to blog more about topics, and have a few readers for your stories, then WordPress.

      It really depends on your goals. Also, you could just upload your stories to both and see what happens.
