Changing Blog Hosts

When I started putting my thoughts to the keyboard, I created my first blog using Blogger. It was blogging for dummies. A lot like AOL was for the internet. They made it easy, and easy is what I needed since I was just beginning the road to blogging. That was around 2008 or ‘09.

I started by using the actual website to do my posts, but when I discovered there were other applications that you could use, I was intrigued. There were other cool features you could do that the website didn’t allow or offer. So, I’ve been using an outside application to create blog posts all these years.

Over the last few years, I’ve had more and more problems with that application. I believe it’s due to Blogger putting limits and discontinuing certain things, which causes me problems when it comes to posting. This is one of the main reasons I have gone from blogging daily, to once a month. The annoyance is just too much.

I’ve thought about changing to another site, like maybe WordPress or Wix, but after playing around with both for a while several years ago, I ultimately decided it was best to stay where I was comfortable and not change anything.

I’m once again entertaining the idea of changing from Blogger to something else. I have a spreadsheet created that will help me beak down all the things each offers. This should be fun. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
