Its now been a year since I replaced my Blogger powered blog with one powered by WordPress. The transition was very easy, I didn’t lose any Google Juice and have now seen my traffic increase.
WordPress as a platform is very easy to learn, and was much more flexible that Blogger. It has jumped in functionality with numerous new releases, more than I ever counted on. I had previously toyed with Joomla but it never worked the way I wanted it too, and was very frustrating.
To celebrate the year of use, I have changed template, and will be fine tuning it to my liking. One day I will make my own from scratch, but need more time to get my head around what is possible.
