I see posts all the time patting WordPress on the back. Why people made the switch from Blogger to WordPress. The benefits of WordPress. Why WordPress changes your life- that’s one right? While I’m not a WordPress blog, I do use it for work, so I do have somewhat of an understanding.
But this blog, is a blogger blog. You can instantly tell from my “GFC” (Google Friend Connect) widget on the right of my blog.
While WordPress does have it’s advantages (SEO tools, owning your content, built in plugins…) Blogger still has some pluses. So while everyone sings WordPress’ praises I’m here to state:
Why I Still Use Blogger
-It’s easy to understand. As far as a blogging platform goes, Blogger is very straightforward. You can immediately jump in and understand how to post, edit, and import pictures and how to gain followers.
-Design. Designing in Blogger is more simple than WordPress. Of course, it’s nice to have a blog designer but when you’re just starting out, you can adjust the website to your liking.
-Google. Blogger is owned by Google and Google is basically God. Am I right?
– Stats. Your blog’s statistics are simple and clear. You can see easily how you got traffic.
