The Binary Biker Moves to WordPress

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.

Binary Biker has moved to WordPressWhy 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:

  1. There are higher-quality themes available for WordPress
  2. It is easier to create a custom theme and remote-host your blog on your own domain.
  3. The administration options are more powerful.
  4. I have more control over my blog than with Blogspot.
  5. 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.
