Many of you have asked me since I have switched over to wordpress why I was doing it and if I liked it. I wanted to give you a breakdown of my blogger and wordpress experiences now that I have been over here for a while….
I moved over to wordpress for more security in the beginning. In wordpress, spam is pulled out of your comments and it is all spam +1 W
And in wordpress, you have to authorize a new visitor to leave their first comments +1 W
That being said, Madi’s comments are always in my spam folder -1 W
I found Blogger a little more intuitive as a program. I feel that their system is more navigable and I could figure out any changes they made to itself in a day or two +1B
WordPress seems to be slightly more professional, and you can create your own domain name for a minimal charge +1 W
When I logged into my gmail, I was logged into Blogger. I miss having the two connected +1 B
I know that Blogger users now have to enter more information in order to leave a comment. -1 W But it is for security purposes, so I appreciate all you who do that.
In wordpress, you know if someone else in wordpress is responding to your comments +1 W In blogger, you had to go back to that person’s blog to see if there was a response or comment, and I never really followed up on that.
In wordpress, you can search easier for other blogs you would like to follow or check out. I have found a few new dog blogs on here I never knew existed on blogger +1 W
Sometimes, in wordpress, all of the blogs that I follow don’t pop up when I try to go through them. If I log in when I wake up, it will tell me I have a handful of new posts, and then if I go back later, there will be a ton of posts that weren’t there the first time from overnight. It is the weirdest thing -1 W
So, to break it down:
WordPress 2, Blogger 2
