So I’ve decided to make the transition to WordPress from Blogger. The time has now come. Since I’ve had Blogger, it has been a great learning experience and I’d still recommend it to anyone that plans on creating a basic blog. It’s very easy to use and I’m happy to have had a free hosting service this entire time.
While I don’t know the future of my blog, I do know that I’ll continue posting updates in real-time. I also know that I want to be in full control of the content and actually have ownership over it. This is a big reason for the switch. The other big reason is functionality. I’ve had a difficult time getting buttons and plugins that I want on my blog to work properly and WordPress has a plethora of options I’m anxious to take advantage of.
So I picked up a cheap hosting plan for about $6.50/mo through my current provider but may have to upgrade it if I start getting many more pageviews. For now, I think it will work fine.
The transition should start Monday so I appreciate any patience as everything is switched over. I actually hired someone to make the transition seamless so there really shouldn’t be any downtime. Just in case, I wanted my readers to be aware of what was going on.
The look and feel, however, will be changing over the next few weeks as I get to play around with many new plugins that I didn’t have available. Hopefully, this should make viewing and navigation much easier.
For those of you that have had WordPress, I’d love to hear what your thoughts are about it? I’d also be curious to know what some of your favorite plugins are?
