Well, I threatened to do it, and now it’s done. I’ve converted the blog over to Word Press. It was a bit of trouble, but really not all that bad. Right now things are in a bit of disarray as I try and get everything working. You may notice some dead links, missing material, etc.; but, hopefully everything will be up and running soon.
I would like to add that I don’t wish to use this as an opportunity to trash Blogger. In fact, leaving Blogger was kind of like selling my first car. I bought the best thing I could afford at the time, but as I got older I needed something a little bigger and more comfortable. It served me well while I used it and I sometimes miss it. I whole-heartedly recommend Blogger to anyone wanting to start a blog. If it were not for the ease of start-up, I never would have started. And the clunkiness was actually a good thing as it forced me to learn a lot about HTML, CSS, and many web tools.
I’m very impressed with the Word Press software so far. It’s easy to use and powerful.
