How did you choose you blogging platform?




Omg, no idea! I started in late 2008! I remember being bored and just, dunno looking at stuff? I came across bookblogs and was like wow...I could do that! Maybe one of them had blogger and I chose it that way. I have looked at wordpress throughout the years, but I just find it difficult. Blogger is just so easy and fast. Wordpress it better when u pay for it.




So I guess it was luck that brought me to blogger, and its easy nature that made me stay

  1. Me too, I was looking at all the other blogs and it seemed that blogger was what everyone was using. And it's just little ole me so I can't afford to pay for a platform that blogger gives me for free. :)

  2. Yes, I think almost everyone who started a blog from 2005-2012 or so used Blogger. I did at first. It was pretty easy. It works for you, so why change it?

  3. I actually started with blogger and switched to Wordpress. I had used WP before for another blog, and I think it just made it easier. Boring explanation, I know!

  4. Yaaa that is why I stuck with Blogger. Wordpress is good too but to fully get all the goodies you have to spend money

  5. I did no research and just started a blog on Blogger on a whim. I liked the layout of Wordpress better so I moved over about a year ago.

    1. I did like that, but alas, blogger keeps me

  6. I didn't choose Blogger, I was invited in on the first blog and Waves of Fiction, which I totally run now. I think Blogger is free, simple and easy which fits and I don't want to spend extra time trying to figure things out on something else. We tried Wordpress and it was too hard to switch IMO! It's fine for something that's a hobby. :)

    1. Exactly. Too much work for me. I liked free and easy!

  7. I started with Blogger, got frustrated by something about the code, tried free WP, saw that it wasn't as customisable as Blogger was, started from scratch with a new Blogger URL (I had only published a post or two) and realised it was far easier than I thought at first. Like you, I'm not going to spend money on my blog (at least until I can have one for free LOL).

    1. Lol, I was lucky in the beginning and a blogging friend helped me fix my blog a bit. SO all thanks to her for the look. But still miles easier than wp

  8. I used Blogger at first and it was fine. I think a lot of people were switching to WordPress and I got excited about the added features LOL

  9. I had a different blog on WP but it was free and had literally NO views lol

    So when I decided to do it more seriously, blogger was so much easier.
