Goodbye Blogger, hello WordPress

By , May 3, 2009 4:15 pm

I wish I’d known how much better WordPress is than Google Blogger before spending all that effort on the latter. Some quick highlights:

  • A real programming language (PHP) rather than some lame imitation which doesn’t even have proper flow control structures. Of course this also means it’s very easy to set cookies, use CGI parameters etc.
  • More more out-of-the-box flexibility and functionality on the backend
  • Unbelievably easy to set up on my own webserver
  • Over 4000 plugins! including ones for SyntaxHighlighter and Google Analytics
  • Countless themes, many of which support fluid width content columns.

So I’m totally sold; now I just have to make different RSS feeds available for my different audiences (none of which exist yet…)
