I like that WordPress made that title of the first post, so I’m keeping it.
So… I broke down and made a blog on WordPress. And, after I get some opinions on the new site, I may soon purchase a domain in my name–aaaah! I have to be honest: I feel like I’m experiencing a blogger identity crisis. It’s scary. “Whaaaa? I can’t use my name as a website name; that’s crazy! Then everyone will absolutely know it’s me doing the blogging (despite the fact that I put my name and picture in it anyways)!”
Much ado about nothing, I know. I used to have a pseudonym of sorts: “yoyopogo,” or simply “yoyo.” It was kind of nice.
Anyway, I’ve been ogling WordPress ever since I first laid eyes on it…about two weeks after I published my first real “writer’s” post on Blogger. -__- I was immediately jealous of those who had WordPress but thought it’d be too much change if I just upped and switched all of a sudden.
…However, I’m loving the simplicity of this particular blog theme (Bueno!), and I think I could catch onto WordPress fairly quickly. It’s a new look that’s closer to my design ideals, and simplicity–believe it or not–is one of them. Also, this style is much easier on the eyes. As fellow blogger Jay Noel pointed out, black backgrounds may be dramatic but also pretty harsh on the eyes.
So, then, why not change the background on Blogger and be done with it, right?
I don’t know… I think I’d like to stick with WordPress.
Would anyone be mad at me for doing so? I hope not. I hate making big changes, but this place is really lovely! (It also forces me to customize a little less, which means I have less room to make stupid design decisions, heh.)
Now, if I could just figure out how to get the “follower” widgets onto here…and if I don’t lose followers, heh, then this one may just be a keeper. I don’t know, what do you think?
