After using Blogger for the last 3 years I feel like I’m a pretty competent user.I like Blogger…
I understand how it works.
It is familiar.
I have developed some reasonable html knowledge over the years to help me change things to be more my liking.
And if I’m honest – I love it because it’s free!
For a long while I have been contemplating moving my blog to my own url.
Mostly because it kind of bugs me (since I’m a details girl and all) that my blog url is still “mummastimetocreate” when for the majority of my time blogging I have gone under the name “diary of a Flutter.Kat”.
Also because I’ve heard some horror stories about people losing their entire blogs at Google’s whim.
Yikes – imagine that!
I am relatively regular at backing up my blog, but still – the thought of losing 3 years of history terrifies me!
So this week I’ve been playing around, having a go and looking into different options.
It’s a big wide complicated other language out there folks!!!
All of a sudden my confidence in my html and blogging skills (and computer skills in general) disappeared and I find myself in a quandry – should I continue wasting investing time on it, or should I stick with what I know?
What to do, what to do?
I could of course hire some help.
Except sadly there is absolutely no room in the budget for that with a big half finished house sitting here in front of me, so that is not going to be an option right now.
Never one to quit I am keen to give it all a go, but I find myself sooooooo out of my depth.
Have you made the move from Blogger?
Are you an IT guru that can give me some pointers?
Either way I’d love your feedback and thoughts on the whole Blogger vs WordPress format.
I actually find myself drawn more to Blogger hosted blogs to read if I’m honest. But I do wonder if that’s just because they ARE so familiar to me so I know what to expect and what to do.
It is probably more to do with the fact that I mostly follow people through Google Friend Connect and read through my Blogger dashboard.
What do you think? Do you like Blogger or WordPress more?
Does it even matter?
Do you even notice the difference?
What blog reader do you use to read blogs with?
One thing is for sure, I really would like to change my url to one that is more “me”…
That is the end goal…
I’m just really not sure the best way to get there.
Interested to know your thoughts…
