Thanks to Kelly (who thanked Andy), I learned that I could now import from Blogger the few posts I had over there. The process was very easy and all was done very quickly (considering I had very few posts to start with…).
Thanks to the WordPress crew for the good work!
After Kelly, it’s my turn to move out… From this point on, I will be blogging from my new WordPress blog. I will be manually transferring some of the posts I already have here, but there will be no further updates…
Why am I moving? Well, first of all, the editor actually properly recognises HTML. I can type in HTML and I will not see my entries mungled. Also, I find the themes are nicer, and perception is fairly important on the web!
See you at the new location!
Or rather… Hello WordPress world!
I had started blogging out in Blogger World. However, a fellow IBMer and blogger, Kelly of Kellypuffs fame moved her bog over here. This prompted me to wonder why. Well, after a few online and offline recommendations, I have decided to try this environment a try.
Actually, this is the first test. I am writing this using the HTML editor, where I write everything in HTML (I like the control it gives me over the typography). If this behaves correctly (i.e., according to HTML rules), then I will be more than happy. Else, I will have to keep on looking at the advantages that WordPress has over Blogger (asides from its independence from Google, as someone suggested).
It seems that my fellow IBM blogger, Kelly, has moved off Blogger and to greener (at least she tells me) pastures.
Blogger is my first attempt at a blog, so I am not overly familiar with the various “engines” out there. However, Kelly’s move has me wondering…is there indeed better environments out there?!? Hey, if it gives me a better editor than what Blogger provides (where at least I can type in HTML without fear of reformatting), I think I would be gone in a second. Especially since I do not yet have much baggage to tie me down anywhere.
So I’m asking the blogosphere at large (OK, the two people who read me – Hi mom!): Why would I want to stay with Blogger and why would I want to move to the “X” engine/site?
