It’s been some 3 months now since I moved from my Blogger blog to this WordPress one.. gosh, time sure passes really quickly! Before I know it, it’ll already be the Novemember holidays again! Haha..
Anyhow, one of things I never got around to doing was to document why exactly I went to WordPress, and (probably) more importantly how exactly I went about doing it. And I never could seem to get around to doing it. 🙁 Luckily, this blogger not only explained why she made the switch from Blogger, but she even outlined the steps for anyone interested in making the switch. Good stuff.
One thing I did miss about using Blogger though was the seemingly millions of websites offering templates for it, so it was easier to make your blog look unique (?? did I just contradict myself there? :> ). But (especially) since the release of version 1.5, the WordPress community has gotten really busy churning out really good-looking templates for WordPress. This long list of more than a hundred templates for WP 1.5 proves just that. And we can be sure that the WP templating scene will continue to be vibrant with events like the WordPress 1.5 Themes competition.
On another note, it would appear that Yahoo is also jumping in on the blogging bandwagon. I have always found the quality and consistency of Yahoo’s services to be excellent (unlike Microsoft’s…) , so it would really be interesting to see how Yahoo’s moveschanges the blogging landscape.
