The beggining of WordPress
Yes, i have once again changed my blogging services. This time a little without warning. You may be wondering why? well then this post is for you!
Blogger was a welcome step up from my previous blogging service. It allowed me complete flexibility. I could literally put whatever i want, where ever i want. The world was my blogging oyster. But with that freedom came alot of work. All of which, fell on me.
For those not familiar with blogger, your website is rendered from a central template. literally everything comes from how that template is written. I had changed my template several times, and every time you change your style, you must adapt your template to fit. which meansalot of editing.
WordPress however, while still being somewhat less flexible in terms of templates, makes up for it in ease of use. Everything is separate, and stays the same from template to template. I can change my style 5 times a day without worrying about updating my sidebar and changing my posting template.
I also feel that wordpress is a more refined blogging service. infact, most people when they think of a blog, think of a wordpress blog. and i feel the same way. I think that wordpress is more in-touch with the way that the internet is changing (Web 2.0), and therefore provides me with cooler features. Not to mention everything else that works with wordpress
Such as native sub-pages. You may remember my clever hack to make subpages in blogger. sure it worked for what it was, but the true beauty of sub-pages comes with the wordpress templates. also blog categories. Forget about technorati tags, catagories are what its all about.
And all of this is built into the online editor. Meaning my blogging is completely mobile again! Goodbye zoundry, Hello freedom!
Basically, i am very happy and excited about this new change. as you ca see, all my old blogger posts are here too, so its like i never left. If you want/need the new feed, its right here. this is a great change, so feedback is appreciated.
Again, nothing has changed except where i do my blogging / podcasting. and it looks ALOT nicer too lol.
