Repost from @stompsoftware -- Have you ever lived in an apartment? It can be nice having neighbors, people to talk to, someone else to do the property maintenance. However, you're stuck living with someone else's rules, design choices you'd never make, and they can sell the building, kick you out, and tear it down any time they want.
Blogging is like owning your own home. You choose the experience your guests have when they walk in the door. Every design decision, entirely your own. You make the rules, and while it is a bit more work? You have complete control. No one can shut it down. No algorithm is going to keep people from seeing it. You won't have to pay to play or spend money on ads.
Social media is important. It is where you go to meet people. Your blog? That is where friends are at. No distractions. Getting to know you better. Building the very important know, like, and trust factor. People see your social media posts for seconds. Blog posts? If they are interested in you, they will spend time going through your archives. Which are you spending all your time working on? Your blog, or social media? Are you building on the land that you own?
PS - we are in the middle of house renovations right now! We chose white subway tile in a herringbone pattern, Colonial White granite, brushed nickel pulls, and now we just have to finalize our paint choice! - @ChristineBPC
