Isn’t it annoying when someone you know picks up and moves without your permission, forcing you to dig through drawers and cabinets all over the house to locate the ancient address book you’ve had since the seventh grade, the purple one with the frolicking kittens on the front and the words “Purr-fect Pals” scrawled across the top, only to scratch out their old address (written, of course, in permanent ink) and copy down the new one underneath it? What a hassle. And I’m sorry.

Thank you to everyone who contributed an opinion to the great Blogger vs. WordPress debate. After a week of deliberation so tortured you’d think I was considering pulling the plug on a living, breathing person rather than a motley collection of digitized prose, I’ve decided to move my blog to WordPress.

Both sites offered some great tools, and I’m sure there will be things I miss about Blogger (like being able to edit my own CSS), but there are a lot of new toys to play with at WordPress (like onboard blog stats, customizable music player, a flickr photo plug-in, and lots more.)

Maybe, despite all my raillery against change, I’m just another neophile after all.

  1. Congratulations on your move! Looks like it went smoothly. My attempted move is still a “disappointment”, I am still waiting.

    Anyway, thanks for the notice, I’ll change the link in my blogroll to point here.

  2. Welcome to WordPress! I made the switch from Blogger awhile back and I am so glad that I did! I see you figured out how to import your posts from Blogger. Yeah! Have a good day! P.S. I love the picture at the top of the kiddos!

  3. I have landed! But, please put up your “Blogs I Like” link…..I use that soooo much…or at list make it a tab on your new blog.

    Gee, I’m such a demanding blogfriend 😉

  4. I like the new template! I’m still messing around with some of the others to see if I find one I like better than what I’m currently using. I’m enjoying the minimalistic look 🙂 But, my problem has been finding a pic of the 3 kids that can be cropped to the appropriate size without losing half of a face (or worse, the entire face) of one of my kiddos! So, I either need to start snapping pictures right & left, or just stick with what I’ve got for now…but I love all of the choices WordPress offers!

    BTW, thanks for listing me as one of the blogs you enjoy reading!

  5. Oooh, I like the calendar. I have always wanted to have a calendar like that on my blog…

    (she says, saying inwardly, but I’m not moving…yet!)

    But yes, I will change the address…



  6. Nice template. Great. I just started at blogger and now I’ll be pondering a migration to WordPress someday! Lol!

    (Oh and by the way, I read a few of your blog entries here and you ARE funny! 🙂 )
