Thinking Of Moving?

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but i never got around to it. I finally got all my links together today and decided to write a few words on blogger and thoughts on wordpressif you’re thinking of moving blogs. I’ve heard though that it has got slightly better but i haven’t used it yet.

Recently over the past couple of months Blogger announced a new and shiney
Interface
There was alot of talk about this on Twitter. Even sighted people didn’t like it. I decided to create an account on
WordPress
In case I needed to change because of this new interface being inaccessible.

So once you create your account or log in, you will be in what is called your “Dashboard”. This is exactly the same as what your ddashboard does in blogger. WordPress may seem quite cluttered at first, but if you go into your dashboard and press Enter on the
Themes Section
There are a number of different themes you can choose from, but the one i found easiest to use is the
Clean Home
Theme. It seems to minimise the clutter.

Unfortunately when you create a post you need to disable something called the “visual edditor”. Otherwise you can’t write links or anything. To do this, you need to go into the
Users section
Of your dashboard. You then need to go into
Personal Settings
Which is underneath “Users” when you click on it. In your personal settings, you need to tick the “Disable visual edditor” and save your changes.

So when you Create a new post
You can write the usual code for links and such. It takes a while to get used to the way a post is layed out though.

So if you’re still thinking of moving blogs, i hope this post has helped explain wordpress a little. I won’t move unless i need to though!
