So, it appears blogger is having issues AGAIN! Last week when our posts were removed, we lost comments and couldn't read or post for over 24 hours, it was okay, no big deal. Just the wonderful numerous comments y'all left on Pat and Jess' wedding....gone forever into oblivion.
No big deal, we can handle it right?
But today, I can't post comments on any blog that requires me to select "Google Account." It just says I'm anonymous and then makes me sign in over and over again. Sorry Hannah and Sweet Southern Prep and NOLA Girl and Sweet Tea Diaries. Y'all won't be hearing from me today (and I did have good things to say about your adorable children, food and weekend happies).
(a/k/a they are totally missing the ball lately)
These are just a few of the issues I have had with blogger. There are many more that I won't go into here.
Over the past few months, I have been looking into converting to Wordpress, but haven't had the guts to do it. I'm afraid my content and followers won't transport (and thus, y'all wouldn't be able to find me) and I really need somebody professional to do it for me.
It's not just the blogger issues, but I'd like to be able to format my pages a little better, make them a little more readable. I want to re-start my shopping and book review pages, but blogger's setup is just way to cumbersome and not attractive at all.
I'm more about the content then design which is what Wordpress promotes. You want a killer design? Stick with blogger. If you want to concentrate on format and content, go with Wordpress. That's the news anyways.
I'm just scared to do it by myself. I mean, it took me 7 days to figure out how to re-route my blogspot address to my now URL...slpreppystyle.com. I did it by myself but it took days! And that was with LOADS of trial and error. I'm not sure that I will have the trial and error chance with this transfer. I'm afraid that once I start I can't look back and there are just too many risks.
What are your thoughts?
Have any of you made that change and was it successful? I'm sure I won't receive too many comments as a majority of you are on blogger anyways. But I thought I'd put this out there and hope that someone might have some insight (or might offer to help! :-)
Happy Tuesday Y'all!
