Four years ago, I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress and have never looked back. My reasons for the move were:
- Ability to use tags and categories to label my posts, instead of just using labels.
- The Misty look theme, which I loved, and still have a soft corner for.
- Akismet spam blocker
I definitely did not move for the writing/usability experience. Most people I know who have moved from Blogger to WordPress find the dashboard slow, clunky and user-unfriendly. The editor window was no great shakes. But all that’s changed now. The new WordPress dashboard is super-fast, and best of all the distraction free writing is awesome.
Normally, I run out of steam at around 500 words or so…probably because the older editing window was so cluttered. But with this new window, I just banged out an 800+ word post as easy as pie. Maybe there is something to this distraction free writing after all.
Whether me churning out 800 + word long posts is good or bad…well, you be the judge of that
