Some General Blogging Tips & Experience
I was moving on with blogger from long time. I love blogger service because it’s good to start with something. Nice platform and easy way to handle make blogger special. But 2 years ago I felt that I need to do something more.
I need some platform that grows with my work too. Then I thought to try with WordPress. It was simple to use and easy to install having many things like plug-ins etc. It’s not about that I hate blogger service. But that time I was very serious about my work. I was working hard to make my content more developed. That just made me to move to WordPress.
I can see tons of plug-ins. And well its open source, developers are constantly creating plug-ins more useful for blogs.
Now if you are thinking what is a plug-in then I am going to tell you something. It’s simply a script you can install to add extra function to your blog. WordPress have plug-in directory for that. You can choose the best one and add it. Here is plug-in directory with a list of all free and useful plug-ins.

Ok, how it feels when you type smiles codes and they turn into emotions automatically? Of course it’s cool. So there is no need to add some extra image inserts. WordPress is providing a better option in settings for that .Actually also there is a problem I was facing to move my blog from blogger.com to WordPress. FTP setup was not fine with blogger.
It always feels good when you do hard work and also its so comforting to know that your content is on with you not on some other server. (That can face any issue too)
Well if you have a blog and need to move it to WordPress. You can use simple import feature of WordPress and move all data instantly with all posts and comments. Everything including images and videos came over with just fine format.
Before you start import process make sure you change Blogger’s archive to no archive. WordPress was only importing first post of every month with that error.
If you are thinking about losing your blog feeds subscribers, then no need to worry more. If you are using FeedBurner service then there is never an issue about it.
If you don’t have any service then no need to worry. Blogger allows you to redirect your feeds to some other URL. So all the traffic will be move to new one.
Now the other problem is how you will move your all blogger traffic to your other site? No need to worry about it there are hundreds of way to move traffic. By using redirection links, by using htaccess methods and many more.
So if you are looking for blogging then I will recommend you WordPress. Blogs are getting much famous and fast in now a day.
If you don’t have your own domain name to use this. You can host your web on their site too, but it’s very good to put your content on your own website. Hosting is very cheap and now a day’s students can also afford it. It’s good to give a professional look to your site by making itself hosted blog.
