Shall I Move this Blog to Wordpress?

I was playing around with Alphonsus's Written Word yesterday and found a way to create a second blog. As an experiment, I transferred the entire content of my Blogger blog, comments and all, over to WordPress.

Now the question is, what do I do with it? I have an established presence here on Blogger, and virtually all of my friends use it exclusively. On the other hand, I love the dashboard of WordPress, and the way it tracks statistics. I have found WordPress to be a better experience overall then Blogger. What's more, as WordPress is not associated with Google, I don't have to log out of one Gmail account over to another just to use it. This has been just a minor annoyance, but it is an annoyance nonetheless.

I've yet to set up and widgets on the WordPress version of Alphonsus's Random Drivel. I'd like to get the feed back of my friends before I do that. I'm still looking at templates over there. There are about 60 of them, varying from 1 column to 3 columns, with fixed or flexible widths.

Hmmm. I guess I'm kinda sold on WordPress. What I'm looking for are any good reasons why I should NOT move.

My new blog address would be http://alphonsus.wordpress.com

Love and peace and seeking the joy, whatever the hell that is.

Alphonsus

I cannot give you a good reason not to - for me the change would simply be to change the link in the "Friendly Constructs" section of my blog. You should do what YOU want to do - not what everybody else thinks you should do.

I just hope I can comment there without necc having to register at ANOTHER place.... Otherwise I can read but not comment --- (I keep getting enuf spam as it is when I keep registering at places)

But of course== move to where you prefer to be.:-) And know that I will read it and respond in spirit.

Just know u cant use Javascript and such at wordpress. you stuck with the widgets that they allow.But the wordpress community is almost worth getting up outside widgets.
