Hello, WordPress!

So I just ported my old blog from Blogger to WordPress and have been quite satisfied so far. WordPress gives you a whole lot more control over just about everything than Blogger does, and it’s much easier to customize. Given, Blogger was simpler to set up and easier to use, but I like WordPress better overall so far.

One gripe I have is photos don’t work quite the same as on Blogger, but I’ll get used to it. It still works reasonably well. I hope I don’t use up my 50MB too quickly. 😉

So, that’s the latest news here. Hello, WordPress!

    So, was it easy to move everything from Blogger to WordPress? Do they sort of go together so you can move back and forth without redoing everything? I like the spell checker in the comments, or maybe it’s just Firefox, I don’t know. I don’t like how you have to put your email, cause I don’t have one. 😦 Good luck! I like the look of WordPress better, but what happened to the countdown?

    I could choose whether to require email addresses or not, but I chose to enable it. That way I can contact people directly if I want to talk to them, and it will prevent some spam that I don’t want on here. Sorry that causes trouble for you, but thanks for commenting anyway. 🙂

    Moving to WordPress was pretty easy, actually. Once I got all the settings configured, I just had it import everything directly from Blogger. I had to re-post most of the pictures so they wouldn’t be tied to Blogger when I delete that blog eventually. But I’m very pleased with WordPress overall.

    Wow, that was a quick reply. I think I do like WordPress more, even though it takes a little bit longer to load than Blogger. Who makes WordPress? Google? Who? Well, I’d better go now, and thanks for the reply. 🙂

    P.S. I like how it does the little emoticons if you type something like 😦 or 😉 or :P, but I don’t know about that last one.

    WordPress is free software written in PHP. WordPress.com is a hosting service run by a company called Automattic. It uses a version of WordPress called WordPress MU, which allows people to setup blogs without having to install WordPress software on their own servers.

    And yes, I enabled the emoticon images. Glad you like them. 😉
