Have you ever fallen in love with something unexpected? Not someone, but something? That’s exactly how I feel about WordPress. When I switched almost a year ago, I did it not knowing half of the things I know now and did it out of obligation to keep up with the next best thing for bloggers. Almost a year later, I have a serious love affair with WordPress. When I sit down to plan out post ideas, WordPress topics are the easiest for me to come up with. Maybe it’s my desire to help other bloggers or maybe it’s just my love of blog design. Whatever the reason, I decided it was time to find a way to help bloggers overcome the fear of switching to an unknown platform and also provide a resource for those who may already be using WordPress but don’t feel like they have it completely figured out. Over the next six weeks, I’ll be taking a look at WordPress basics and hopefully providing some insight into making the transition from Blogger (or Squarespace) to WordPress easier and less overwhelming.
The Biggest Differences Between Blogger and WordPress
It’s pretty easy to find lots of resources out there that tell you why you should switch to WordPress. But sometimes, I think as bloggers, we want all of the facts up front. Instead of sitting here and telling you why you should switch to WordPress, I think it’s better and helpful to just simply read what the differences between WordPress and Blogger are and hopefully those will help guide your choice.
