Well, its been 8 months and as soon as I set up my blogger site, I wanted to move to wordpress. I finally made the move last week. I have to say, that I am having a few struggles with moving comments, but all and all it was worth it.
Every time I joined a blogging group, they were on wordpress and I felt like I was behind the game. I think if you are just blogging as a hobby, blogger is fine. That’s how my blog started. But as time went on, I realized eventually I plan on monetizing it. Blogger doesn’t allow that, and I hear they can close down your site.
So I made the move, and been a little behind on my blogging. I also took a great course from Melissa Culbertson from Momcomm. Its called Content Brew. I suggest you sign up for it, if you are a blogger. She gives you 7 days of content to help you get organized.
I am learning about all the plug in’s for wordpress. I really liked this article that gives you 19 essential plugins from Problogger.net. I am not sure what my favorite one is yet, I am going through the list and adding them. It’s taking me a little longer since I am not as tech savvy as I would like to be.
Another blog that I like that gives me lots of information on social networks is NighLon. Cari is doing a series right now called Blogging from A – Z.
So I am really excited to start working with wordpress more, and recommend it to anyone that plans great things for their blog.
I would love to know what your favorite plug in is, in case I want to add it to my blog. If you would like to receive our recipe and kitchen tips newsletter once a month, Sign up for our free monthly recipe newsletter!
