Last of the Blogspot-hicans
As with any new fad, bandwagon, or technology, I seem to be the last of the people I know to make the exodus to WordPress. It was the same with Walkmans, CD’s, cellphones, and a home computer. It’s always been part reluctance, part inertia, and part available cash. Plus I’ve always questioned popular items for whether they were just a fad or if they were truly much better. Often that has meant delaying enjoyment of things that really enhance life.
So here’s the new blog. The transition was effortless with only one button to push. It even brought over my blogger uploaded photos. Though I’ll likely tie them all to Flickr. As Vila is doing, I’m updating all my categories which was only half-done when I switched to blogger-beta.
As with any move, it doesn’t feel quite comfortable yet. There were some aspects to the interface and customibility that I prefered on the blogger beta side. The big advantage here that I like is that I can add my own header image. I’ll keep poking around to see if there are other items like the blogroll that I can modify to my liking.
