To change blogsite or not to change?

Blogger was out of action for an extroardinarily long time yesterday and today. In my frustration, as I wanted to get something posted about Ecclesiae Universae I set up a new blog and posted there. By the time I had finished blogger was up again so I just copied the HTML and published here.

Any thoughts? I like to the Wordpress layout. Just wondering what (my few) readers think/advise.


  1. I'm not sure and am considering moving to a self hosted Wordpress blog myself. It's the first real problem I've had with Blogger but I'm just not sure whether Wordpress would be any better. I will be interested in any responses you receive to this.

  2. I did notice that those with Wordpress were still blogging while blogger was out of action. As Blogger does not go out of action too often I am staying with it....the one I know!

  3. I am a wordpress user, and love it. I like how it's cleaner and more layout options. Either way, they both have their pros and cons. But I like the Wordpress because it has more options, and the user has more control on what stuff looks like.

  4. I agree with Tania that Blogger seems to be fairly reliable and I would think that it's probably more a case of personal preference. Both Wordpress and Blogger seem to be fairly widely used in the blogosphere.

    I like the appearance of your post in the Blogger format as I find the coloured highlights very clear.

  5. I've been frustrated by Blogger yesterday and today as well, but it seems to be coming back up now. I've been with them for three years and this is the first big problem I've had, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. Things do go wrong in the world of IT from time to time.

  6. I'm staying were I am, we have started this new Blogg please drop by.

  7. I like many of the new changes that have been incorporated into blogger, giving greater options for layout. I wondered if there were other tools in Word Press that can't be found in the current Blogger or vice versa.

  8. I had a Wordpress blog but found that there were some things that I couldn't do in Wordpress, like widget thingies in the sidebar.
    Also, if I recall correctly, I couldn't embed Youtube videos which I found very frustrating.
    Tha't why I changed over to Blogger.
