    Moving to WordPress?

    Some fellow bloggers have moved to WordPress for a refreshing new look, but on top of that, to kiss Blogger glitches goodbye. I'm weighing my options here and consider moving to either WordPress or TypePad, which charges at least $4.95 for a basic membership. Things to consider:

    • import the entire content of my current blog to the new site
    • varieties of templates, as you can see, I prefer a 3-column format
    • comments moderation

    WordPress looks appealing since it allows user to categorize posts. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Also I've got to get on the header for the blog. So much to do and this is only the first day of new year!

    Let me know how the move goes should you decide to do it. I'm losing patience with blogger, as well.

    Oh, and Matt - DO NOT SWITCH TO BLOGGER BETA - if you think you may be going to another provider. It can't switch beta blogger, only regular blogger. Unfortunately I didn't know this - and had to manually transfer everything!

    Yeah, I thought wordpress was free now, too. ?????

    I hate the idea of changing but I think I read that I will need to because my current old blogger will be dying aways and it is not transferable to the silly new blogger.

    ...and, I can barely master old blogger.

    Right now I am just trying to figure out how I can save a copy of my blog as I've been keeping it since 12/02. Don't wanna lose it all! ...and as Joshua points out -- I can't and will never manually transer it over. ugh.

    Hey, happy new year!!!

    Wordpress is a very good choice and best of all, it is 100% free. There is a build for multiple blogs as well.

    I've been using it for a full year now and I love it.
