The Switch from Blogger to WordPress

As you’ve probably noticed, I have switched “The Ups, Downs, and Double-Dip Recessions of High School Life” over to WordPress (also, just before I posted this, I put up a new post, so check that out if you didn’t see it).  I did this for a number of reasons, mostly because WordPress has a ton more features.  The switch wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.  If you are considering switching your blogger blog over and want some advice, send me an e-mail and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Anyways, more about the new features.  I’m now displaying my feed count in the upper-right hand corner.  I’ve got a new color scheme, and, with it, a new button down at the bottom of each post page. I’ve still got you as a follower (if you are following), and the RSS feed should have been switched over for those of you already subscribing.  I also had some plastic surgery done, but that’s private (just kidding).

Lastly, I created a couple new pages that you should check out.  And, of course, lots of little, amusing new content blurbs thrown in.  I already know of one technical error that needs fixing (if you look at posts by category you see two images of the same), and if you see any other errors, please let me know.

Most importantly, if you see anything so awful that it annoys you beyond belief, feel free to send yourself an e-mail venting your anger.

  1. Huh. I find this interesting, because I initially had my blog on WordPress and switched over to Blogger. Are you self-hosted or no?

    I found WordPress to be too money-oriented on several features that Blogger offered free, but I will definitely be keeping up with this to see how things go for you! =)

    • I am self hosted, yes. I did create a free WordPress account originally, just to test some of the features (even though I was planning to self-host) and I can understand why you switched over to blogger (I did notice that you had to pay for a lot of extra things). Since I am self-hosting, I believe that a number of those features are now free.

  2. That’s interesting. I’ve never considered WordPress because it wasn’t completely free. And I’m ridiculously cheap. [:
    But I like how it looks.

    • Thanks, Fiona. I spent a few hours working on the new design, so I’m glad that you like it.

      I agree that blogger is definitely better in terms of price, and I did have to do a fair amount of “work” to make enough to set this site up. I’ll just have to wait and see if it was worth it or not.
