I have considered setting up a Wordpress blog and leaving that mischievous trickster Blogger for good. Especially after it crashed on Wed eve and lost all those wonderful comments saying what you are not. That was fun reading. Then Blogger brought back my post and more lovely people left comments. So I am reconsidering my options.
I know I'm not alone in this, but I love comments!! And followers!! Which is why Blogger keeps me trapped in its clutches--I like how easy it is to set up and to attract followers and comments. When I visit a Wordpress blog, I really don't like all the blanks I have to fill in order to leave a comment. And many of them don't have a follower icon. Basically it boils down to ease of use, which Blogger has refined down to every detail.
There may come a time when leaving Blogger feels right to me, but until that day comes, I'm here to stay. I am not leaving you yet, Blogger, so you better not leave me first. Any problems in this relationship can hopefully be resolved, but just remember it's not me, it's you. So get your act together ok? And then we can have a long and happy relationship, which is what we both want, right?
