Blogger.com--start there, move later, or.....

Postby CalamityJane » Sat Nov 29, 2008 8:39 am

I have a blog I just got started on a couple of weeks ago. It's not at all built up yet, but I have plans for it. I started it before I found this information-rich site/forum. Now, I am just wondering, before I get too many posts and links on my blog, should I go ahead and move it to Hostgator, and use Wordpress?

Or just leave it alone for now, and focus on my "learning of this business"? What would be the pros and cons of moving now, or moving later?

Thanks.

not sure, If I agree with hostgator, but I defintely agree with switching with worpress. Get wordpress, it's the best.

as for hosting your blog, hmm I could go on for years, with best places. I will let others recommend!, I preferr being my own host :)

I also recommend either hosting with wordpress or using typepad. They are much better long term and moving a blog later is a royal pain.

I had a blogger blog for a couple of years before finally transferring it to a wordpress site of my own. It was easy to transfer over and I didnt lose any content, but since I didn't realize it would take everything away from blogger, I was left with nothing there and my readers wondering what happened to me.

Bottom line: do it sooner, rather than later.

Thank you all for your replies. It makes sense to start where I'll end up.

Appreciate it.
