I've moved from Blogger to Wordpress

Well it’s official… I made the move from Blogger to WordPress.  It took a few calls to my hosting company and a few emails to a blogging friend but I did it!

Here are some of the Pros and Cons of Wordpress that I've noticed so far...

PRO: Alexa Rank instantly increased (yay)
CON: Unfortunately, spam comments also increased (boo)
PRO: More options- plugins, widgets, etc.
CON: More options means more to learn!
PRO: Hundreds of different themes (ie. layouts) to choose from
CON: You actually have to narrow it down and choose one!
PRO: Posts can be detailed and organized with tags and categories
CON: Tags, categories… who can keep up?!
Overall I’m happy to be out of Blogger’s grasp (ie. Google), but I can’t quite say yet that I’m one of those bloggers who’s completely happy to have made the switch… but hopefully WordPress will continue to grow on me and I’ll get more comfortable using it.

I've also had a complete blog makeover so I hope you'll come by and visit me at the updated site.  :)
