Goodbye Blogger, Hello (Something Else)...
Well, I finally reached the breaking point today – I officially hate Blogger and am kissing it goodbye. Last time I was this frustrated I wanted to do something about it but didn’t. This time, I’m doing something about it, starting today.
This afternoon I downloaded WordPress, and to install it on one of my shared hosting accounts took me – literally – less than 5 minutes. Of course, it took me a couple of hours to figure out the scripts and docs for moving my Blogger stuff over to WP, but that seems to have worked – at least at this point. Even got the Haloscan comments over, which was impressive. All this courtesy of tutorials from Justinsomnia.
Not sure if WordPress is the final solution – I’m looking at Moveable Type as well (I wonder what the migration options are) – but either of them are a huge step up over Blogger. Sorry Google… too many glitches in too short a time. Good luck with it.
