On many occasions, I have spoken highly of WordPress. I genuinely believe that they have the best blog site on the planet and I have also spoken about its lovely community.
A few days ago, I thought about setting up an additional blog on another blog site for the sake of experimentation; my mind has changed. I will devote my time and energy to Renard Moreau Presents. The last things I need are distractions.
The folks at WordPress might be shocked when I tell them that I was able to set up a second blog. For the fun of it, I made one on Weebly and deleted it immediately after it was created. The theme was very beautiful; it was way better than what we have here on WordPress. However, it didn’t feel quite right; it felt as though I had entered a zone in the internet whose main emphasis was the sole promotion of small and large businesses and not of blogging.
My friend Alastair told me that it was difficult (I ventured into it and I found it to be easy; it was a simple drag and drop process). But, unfortunately, I was unable to freely manoeuvre myself around Weebly (Well, not bad at all for sticking my nose into something new and I did all of that in under three minutes).
I wouldn’t advise anyone to set up a blog on Weebly. As I said, although it looks strikingly beautiful when you have finished creating your personal blog, one is left with the feeling that it is all looks with no substance.
I believe that the reason WordPress and Google Blogger are the top blog sites is because they were specifically designed for blogging.
I find WordPress rather interesting, because I have spent a little over a year on it and I still haven’t discovered all of its secrets; it’s as though there is always something new to be learnt on WordPress.
To be honest, I would like WordPress and Akismet to sort out their spam issue. It’s as though my spam folder is a magnet for spam; I get too many on a daily basis.
I have even mentioned to some of you in the past that when I was on Google Blogger, I never received spam (It might sound very unbelievable to some of you who have never blogged on Google Blogger; believe it or not, it’s all true).
I guess that is the only downfall with WordPress; spam-bots are rather fond of it; which at times proves itself to be a minor annoyance.
I guess that I can safely say that there is no such thing as a perfect blog site since they all have various flaws of their own.
Despite the spam issue, I would prefer to blog on WordPress any day.
Also, WordPress blogs have a way of finding themselves all over the internet; it’s as though the various search engines are unable to ignore them.
Although I have spent approximately a little over a year on WordPress, I feel as though my blogging journey on this blog site has just begun.
