Well originally I had intended on staying with blogger for the posting tools and publish my blog to my personal web-space provided by my internet company. However, I was wanting to change the template over there and thus was republishing the entire site to my server. This apparently was not working so out of frustration and trying to work with it for a few hours, I decided to just move over here to wordpress.
I have a site using the wordpress engine already and have been very happy with it. For this one I’m not using my own server, which I may be able to do, but for now I decided to just put it on wordpress to make life easier. Plus my server has very little space and is using a lot through two other sites that I have running so I figure this is probably a smarter idea in order to keep my costs down. If I start having issues with keeping this on wordpress, and/or it gets too big, I may go and get it its own server at some point.
On the plus side, wordpress does have a number of features that blogger doesn’t have, is much easier to use and just is all around better, it just doesn’t have the ability to hook up with my internet server directly without having to install the software on that server. It is also quite nice to be using something that I am now more used to using thanks to my other sites, though this is far less powerful than the version that you host yourself.
