While it's always best to feel you've made your own choices, sometimes going with the flow makes life so much easier. When I set up a new blog last year, I picked Wordpress so that I could have more control over what it looked like. Although I knew I could do more if I hosted the blog myself, I didn't realise how limited it would be if I didn't. Simple things like following other people's blogs, and attracting followers to mine, are such a pain that it really is a bit disheartening. So, I thought I'd have a go at running Wordpress and Blogger blogs alongside one another for a while, and choose which one I like the best. A quick Google revealed that Wordpress will export a blog, Blogger will import one, and the nice people at www.webupd8.org will convert a Wordpress export to Blogger format. So, here's my new, new blog. Some of the formatting has suffered in the transfer, so please bear with me while I fix all that by hand.
