Blogger v WordPress

Filed under: General — Philippe Mesritz @ 10:03 am

Initially, this blog was setup on blogger.com since they were a company I had used many years ago and had been quite happy with. After getting the account setup and running into repeated frustration due to being unable to publish the blog onto our web host server, I threw my hands up in frustration and contacted my ISP, Internet Services Unlimited, to ask them what might be going on. While working with them, it appeared that blogger was not connecting to the server at all! I emailed blogger's support and posted on their web forums for assistance. Neither venue offered much assistance — I didn't receive a single response to either in over a week.

At that point, I decided I'd venture into new territory and do some research. Thanks to Entrepreneur magazine for introducing me to WordPress 2.0. Trying it out this morning for the first time, I discovered that it proved to be almost exactly what I needed, much faster, and significantly easier to use — and its free, even if you want to download it and install it on a remote server. Even better for those people with existing blogs, comments and complex information? You can import all your information and not lose a thing!
