The Great Debate

Who’s the greatest?  Who wore it best?

Which is better?

There will always be popular opinion and then there will be fact. You can decide which is which.

Who is the greatest?
MJ or Kobe?  Superman or Spider-man?
Biggie or Tupac?

I’m quite sure who I think is the best is in the minority for all three.

Who wore it best?
Kim K. or Mrs. Doubtfire?  You tell me, but somehow I think WE just expected more.  Sorry Kim K.

Which is better?
Mac or PC?
I don’t own and have never used a Mac, so PC all day.  Mickey D’s or Burger King?
Just for the record, I prefer a Whopper (off the broiler) with McDonald’s fries.

Blogger or WordPress?

This question has been haunting me for over a year now.  When I first started this blog I didn’t know anything about blogging.  Are you surprised?  Seriously, I had no idea what the difference was between Blogger and WordPress.

My husband mentioned that I might like Blogger better explaining that it would be the faster way for me to get started.  He had designed a few websites before and he knew I wasn’t trying to learn HTML, CSS, C+, C++ or any other coding language for that matter.

He was right and in about 30 minutes I had chosen a name, a template and had published my first post. That was then and this now.   I want more customization, plugins, widgets; you know, the whole kit and caboodle.  I’m trying to take this blog to the next level.

Please don’t label me as a bandwagon copycatter, because I have been thinking about moving to WordPress for quite some time.  Not because I think Blogger is subpar, but because everyone (when I say everyone I mean pro and influential bloggers, blog networks and blogging leaders) talk about WordPress like it’s the shiznit! the bomb diggity!

I’ll admit it.  I drank the Kool-aid, and after much thought and consideration, I’ve decided to make that move. Believe me when I say, “I want the shiznit bomb diggity too!”  With that being said, I have a lot of work to do.  I will be taking a brief hiatus as I begin to move from Blogger to WordPress., The Grass Is Greener On The Other SideI’ve read so many posts on why you should move from Blogger to WordPress and why you should never migrate from Blogger to WordPress.  Both arguments are quite compelling, but at this time I have to check to see if in fact the grass is greener on the other side.

There are services out there that will migrate Blogger blogs and all the posts to WordPress for a fee.  That would be too easy. I have more than enough time – more time than money actually. I can read and I am completely capable of following directions.  It just seems like grunt work anyway.

GRUNT! Do some more.  
GRUNT! GRUNT!  Do some more.
In the meanwhile, I’ll be back.
I mean, I’ll keep you posted.  It shouldn’t be too bad.

I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!) 

Have you considered moving from Blogger to WordPress?

    Thank you. I hope I'm able to do it on my own. I'm exited and nervous at the same time.

    I go back and forth about changing. Right now I'm in my stick with blogger phase. 🙂

    I'm still going back and forth – even after writing this post I'm still having reservations. I guess I need to s**t or get off the pot! Thanks for commenting.

    I made the move from blogger to wordpress last year after 5 years with blogger. It was a bit confusing at first and I must have spent days trying out every theme to see which was best for me. Once I got settled in and moved all my blog content (from 3 blogs mind you), I had the huge job of sorting what to keep and which posts were no longer relevant. I'm still working on that even now. But I'm happy with wordpress and am going to stick it out here.

      I did the exact same thing – checking out themes, and there was no way in hell I was going to pay for one. LOL. The funny thing is, after I went live went this theme a day later a theme update was available. I'm afraid to update, because it says you'll lose whatever customization you have made. Ain't nobody got time for that. I can't imagine what it most have been like migrating info from 3 blogs!!! I had to start over three time, because I kept forgetting something, had duplicate comments etc. I happy to be on WordPress now, but there was definitely a learning curve. Thanks for reading & commenting!

    I love Mrs Doubtfire… but I would set Kim on fire.. so there's that! As for blogger vs wordpress, started with wordpress and use blogger for the Epistolarians. I prefer wordpress but to each his own I guess.

      They both have pros and cons (Blogger vs. WordPress). Mrs. Doubtfire wins handsdown! Thank you for commenting!
