WordPress vs. Blogger, Porting Between Platforms and Other Fun Thoughts

WordPress vs. Blogger, Porting Between Platforms and Other Fun Thoughts

I’ve been exploring WordPress over the last few months (see my blog NotJustSeattle.com). I really, really like the platform and have found so many benefits over Blogger. Plus, watching the demise of Google Reader a few months back makes me wonder about the long-term status of this. With Google+ garnering the lion’s share of Google attention and public focus, I wonder how long they’ll continue to support the platform. Blogger seems like a neglected stepchild.

With all this, I commenced planning out my migration. It’s not appearing as clean as I’d hoped, but the research is pretty early on. It seems my URL might be the biggest challenge. Plus, I need to decide if I will just move this to a site hosted by WordPress.com, or pony up for something hosted by BlueHost or GoDaddy (or….).

So, taking a thoughtful and well planned approach on this. It’ll be interesting to see where it leads.

Any ideas, hints or tips? Just leave me a comment. I’d be quite happy for advice.
