I wanted to let everyone know that I’ve decided to migrate this blog over to WordPress. The reasons are pretty simple: while Blogger gives me more control over the physical space of the blog, WordPress’ features are more functional (better comments, better “read more” function, etc. etc. etc.). I can also easily get a domain name for this blog through WordPress ($26 for hosting and domain registration ain’t too shabby).
I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, to be honest, but a lot of things kept me from doing so. For one, I worried it would affect my readership numbers and page rankings. Second, importing Blogger posts into WordPress used to be fairly limited; they are, thankfully, no longer so. These mostly seem like trivial things now; the longer I put off switching over, the more difficult it would be. So…I’m doing it. Let’s get it over with. Let’s get me a proper website and make this site less…buggy.
Doing this will mean some changes for the blog — layout, colors, design, etc. If you’re an RSS subscriber, you shouldn’t have to do anything at all because I still use Feedburner. If you’re not subscribed via RSS, then keep an eye out, because eventually this space will redirect to a completely different one.
Nothing will happen overnight. I need some time to get things set up over at WordPress. I may post a link to ask for opinions in the near future. Keep an eye out. Until I’ve made the switch, blogging will continue as usual around here.
