I have happily moved to Blogger from WordPress. Yes, very recently I changed my blogging platform and there were reasons of course for doing so.
In many aspects my decision to leave WordPress seems to be stupid for my blog in WordPress was two years old, I had more than hundred followers and more than two hundred likes. And the statistics says 7,862 views for a blog which I used to update once or twice in a moth, it wasn’t quite bad. The best thing you experience about WordPress is the connectivity it allows with the fellow WordPress bloggers. One can easily look up for freshly pressed contents on WordPress and like or follow blogs just by a click. It certainly fetches you more traffic and a home like feeling. In the end of the year it gifts you with a personalized stats and overview for your blog and apart from this WordPress monkeys remember your blog anniversary, take complete care of content’s security and keep a track of your monthly, weekly, daily blogging targets. What more does someone want?
What I wanted was a complete and free access to my blog’s CSS and design. WordPress, that’s why wasn’t a good place for a poor chap as me. Blogger on the other hand allows me to customize my website for free (WordPress only allowed paid upgrades and a complete freedom to access your site’s CSS and design comes in when your WordPress blog is hosted by WordPress.org which is again a paid upgrade) and if in future I wish to purchase my own domain for my blog I would pay solely for the domain. While being on WordPress would charge me an additional charge of $13 per year along with the yearly cost of the domain (I found it to be large sum just for purchasing a domain, c’mon it’s just my non-profit-making personal blog). So, I imported my same old blog to the Blogger platform. I designed my blog and I am feeling happy for I did it free of cost. This is what you may call a poor kid’s happiness. My decision to switch between the blogging platforms was much delayed which made me to make certain compromises. If there’s anyone like me who doesn’t wish to pay for designing and customizing your blog make the decision right away, right now.
Reviews on how my blog looks are welcomed wholeheartedly. I tried to keep it as much simple and formal as I could. Happy Blogging all and I hope the same love I would get over here. 🙂
