I have been a faithful user of Blogspot for years, but I have made the switch to WordPress as of today. I am not sure yet if I will migrate all of my old posts here or if I will let the old Blogspot blog keep my past archive. Likely, I will move everything here as I have a lot of content on Blogspot.
Why did I make the move?
For the past 6 months I have been CTO at Hooah.cc. I work with a really visionary team of designers and videographers. Many of our smaller websites are done in WordPress. Since I have been exposed to WordPress I have learned the following things about the service that compelled me to switch:
- There are higher-quality themes available for WordPress
- It is easier to create a custom theme and remote-host your blog on your own domain.
- The administration options are more powerful.
- I have more control over my blog than with Blogspot.
- WordPress is the “Apple” to Blogspot’s “Windows;” it just works and is cleaner in every way.
I am excited about the possibilities that await me here in WordPress. I am using a basic theme right now, but I look forward to creating my own in the next couple of weeks.
