So I have finally gotten my lazy ass over to wordpress.
Actually few months back I have already set up this wordpress blog but because my old blog was nominated for the Singapore Blog awards, I couldn’t switch over at that time as the judges need to review it and public voting is based on the old blog as well.
Therefore I spent the last few months playing around with wordpress, trying out the different themes, visiting other wordpress blogs to get ideas so now I felt that the time is finally ripe.
Comparing blogger and wordpress, both have their pros and cons. WordPress’ expanable summary (read more) and neater comment layout is definitely a big draw. But wordpress.com doesn’t allow google adsense and flash plugin which I felt was a pity. It also doesn’t allow me to edit the theme unless I pay for the CSS upgrade. Well after careful consideration I decided the switch was worth it, since majority of anime bloggers are using wordpress as well. ^^;
So if you are a regular reader of my old blog, please remember to update your bookmarks/blogroll/feeds/calander with this new blog. Thank you for sticking with me. ^^;
Btw for those non-wordpress bloggers, may I suggest to consider signing up for a wordpress blog as well? You need not maintain it because having a wordpress blog has lots of advantages. Like for example you can display your avatar each time you comment on a wordpress blog. And you don’t have to key in your name, e-mail, blog address everytime when you comment as well. Best of all you can program your name to direct people to your current blog.
It’s very easy. Just go to wordpress.com, sign up an account, log in and go to Site Admin -> Users (on the right) -> Your Profile (on left).
– Upload your avatar
– Enter your e-mail and blog address and that’s it. done.
