Blogger is OUT, WordPress is IN

More than a year ago, I started blogging. I have been using Google’s Blogger service, but ran into it’s limits a few times:
  • It is very difficult, if not impossible, to print pages with Firefox. It’s unclear why, but for longer topics, not everything is printed.
  • When writing a post, uploading pictures is easy, but they always get inserted at the top of the edit box, which means you have to drag it down (or cut and paste) to the proper location.
  • I could not manage to get html code pasted properly to show some of the code I’ve been creating (and I’m not the only one)
So I finally decided to try WordPress. I downloaded it from and installed it on my webserver. Installation was quick and easy, and I have to say, it works like a charm! I’m impressed.

Obviously a couple of weeks of usage will confirm whether WordPress is better than Blogger, from what I’m seen so far, it looks great.

So I'm leaving Blogger, and if you like to continue to see posts from me, please check
