I get it, WordPress is better. Of course I have an excuse because I chose this thing in fourth grade, but exporting is easy.
On the other hand, one minute contemplating the change without doing anything is one minute that could have been used creating content.
Indecision: my major personality flaw. Maybe.
Anyway, instead of agonizing over a choice for a week and then switching to WordPress, I think I’ll just switch to WordPress. Of course, I need to present this as a rational decision instead of something done on the spur of the moment; all else considered, staying is better as my old posts are indexed in Google, but it’s not like anybody will search for them anyway. There are lots of comparison posts out there, but here’s my $0.02:
- No upper limit on pages (undated reference-like posts), but I
think know I would never have enough page-suited content to reach the Blogger upper limit (10? 20?). It’s irrational, but it’s not a loss in any way, so there.
- More “serious bloggers” use WordPress. (This does not count the school teachers who maintain blogs, who probably don’t care that much about advanced features and social aspects anyway.) Hence, better support and tighter integration in general.
- Google has enough of my data already.
- The punchline: WordPress converts double-newlines to <p> tags while Blogger uses double <br/> tags. As everybody knows, <p> is semantic while <br/> is presentational and therefore the former should be preferred. This is kind of hypocritical because I just used the strikethrough tag above. But WordPress suggests <del> in its editor. So awesome.
Migration in process. Maybe.
