I moved from Blogger to WordPress in about 2006. Back then, WordPress had superior typography and better looking templates.
Yesterday, a friend pointed out that ads were showing up on my blog. This wasn’t the first I’d heard of it, but I use AdBlock on both Chrome and Safari, so I never see ads on my site or anywhere else, so I didn’t think much of it until now. I looked into getting rid of the ads, but WordPress charges an annual fee to do that. Additionally, WordPress has been getting worse and worse in terms of usability (in my opinion). The dashboard is a mess, the editor isn’t great and it’s been trending down for awhile.
So all that leads me to move back to blogger, which has in the meantime become lighter, cleaner, with good typography and nice templates, and which does not force ads on everybody. I hate to do this because RSS feeds go silent, followers don’t get the change, and people don’t follow the change, but I’m going to do it anyway! So, I will be blogging —————————————–———————————————> here.
