Pardon the mess…

Hey thanks for sticking with me over the last several weeks.  During and after the holidays I just wasn’t in the mood to write.  Now, I am back to it and it feels good.  I am making some changes to the blog so bare with me.  I am trying to decide whether to keep the blog here or move it onto a self-hosted site in order to get more functionality through wordpress.

If you know anything about self-hosted WordPress blogs let me know what you think.  I have some website experience, but I have never worked with WordPress.  Is is easy?  Will I get a headache?  Let me know!

  1. My blog that I’m working on is running on Movable Type, but I am fairly certain it’s a similar platform/idea. That having been said, for me the initial setup was just a bit of a pain, but now that it’s up, the actual content management (writing posts, managing old posts, etc) isn’t too bad. I guess it probably boils down to how much time you wanna spend setting everything up.

    I just realized that might be the most non-committal answer I’ve ever given. You’re welcome. 😉

  2. I use wordpress and I love it. It does take some investment to get it up and running, especially if you like to do any modification. However, it’s pretty simple and it’s better than anything I’ve used prior (Blogger, etc.). Now that I have it set up it’s absolutley no headache whatsoever and it does everything I need it to. I’ve been using it for 2 years now.

  3. My blog is a self-hosted WordPress blog.

    It depends on how far into the guts you want to get. If you’re just talking initial setup, then it’s not too bad. If you’re looking at writing your own custom themes, that’s a different story.

    I like WordPress better than MT for several reasons (I didn’t always), but there are some large differences between how WordPress does things vs how MT does things. I say, if you’re currently powered by WordPress.com, and you’re looking to get more involved in customizing your site, stick with what you already know.

    I’ve played with both MT and WordPress, and I’m sticking with WordPress; I’d much rather host it myself too. 🙂
