Switch to WordPress
Posted by Jerry on October 1, 2007
All you bloggers who use Google’s pathetic platform of Blogspot (also known as Blogger), I’d like to honestly know your reasons for not having switched yet to a more advanced, aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly, features-rich, community-supporting platform like WordPress.com?
Why why why!!?
You know, it’s getting really tiresome for me to comment on your blogspot blogs: for one, there’s that primitive anti-spam technology for posting comments that gives me headaches everytime I try to read those mangled letters! Sometimes, it is an incredible feat of imagination to figure out exactly what the letters are–is that a lowercase l or an uppercase I or an f or a t!
And then, for all the trouble of writing up a detailed comment, the damned captcha spamming thing decides that you haven’t proved yourself to be “real” enough, and it forces you to tackle another mind-boggling jumble of distorted characters; in the meantime, your Internet connection is refreshed and often the lengthy and thoughtful comment you just typed up is conveniently LOST!
The comment features are so appallingly poor on Blogspot! It makes having a discussion such an arduous task, for unless your are proficient with html and coding and scripting (I don’t know which you really need), you can’t figure out how to use block quotes to demarcate quotes from your responses, how to add hyperlinks, how to emphasize your points with bold or italics, or anything of that sort!
Please people! You would make *my* life easy by switching to a more enlightened way of blogging–on WordPress.com. And trust me, you will experience the direct benefits of the switch as well! WordPress allows you to port all your posts from Blogger directly here, along with your comments, so you won’t miss a thing!
Besides, you will increase your readership by exploiting the rich publicizing features of WordPress, like Categories, Tags, Featured Posts, etc. And WordPress allows you to read other blogs and follow-up comments on other Wordpress blogs right from your own Dashboard! That means, it saves you the time and bandwidth going around navigating the hideously treacherous territories of Google’s Blogger!
WordPress.com is a beautiful community of really benevolent creators; and look at how pleasing it is to the eyes! Come join WordPress now!
