I gave it a go. I was really excited about all the features and control that WordPress had to offer. I created my blog, I stared to migrate posts from Blogger, I even started a new design. The kicker for me was spam. WordPress just got so much spam comments that I just didn’t see the value in it. Blogger seems to do a great job of keeping all that spam off of my blog, while allowing people to comment when they want to.
Unfortunately I’ll have to live without a few really awesome plugins that I was using on WordPress. The WordPress Mobile plugin was extremely well done and did a great job of presenting my blog on a mobile device. I would LOVE to see this feature make it into the Blogger world. To be honest, it may already exist, so I’m hopeful.
I’m also going to miss the flawless code syntax highlighting in WordPress. The bloggger version is a little clunky and doesn’t work 100% of the time. It just takes more work to get things going.
Overall, I’m very happy with my Blogger blog and I plan to invest more time to keeping content up to date and providing new and relevant code snippets for my readers to use.
