I'm going to ditch Blogger. I've been thinking about it for a long time, and today another person suggested it and I think it's just long overdue.

Whilst I plot my move, enjoy this rather dull layout which is one of maybe 10 sad and outdated templates that Blogger offers.

I hope you update where you'll be! :-) I've been thinking of the same thing for a while. Just to switch everything over to something else, but I haven't had time. Have a good weekend!

Well, I DID switch last night, to Wordpress. The switch was REALLY easy. I imported all of my posts and comments in 5 minutes. I'm still trying to hash out the layout issues, so I didn't want to post a link yet, just because of that.

Also, I've noticed 2 things that I don't like about Wordpress: 1. They also have limited templates available (although, many more than Blogger does) and the template comes pre-formatted and so whatever type style is predetermined, is what you post in. So for example, I like to use a sans serif like Verdana, and now with the template I've chosen, I'm stuck with a serif, and it's not even a nice serif. I read in the forums that in order to change that, you have to manually change it every single time you post via the html. UGH.

Ideally I'd like to use a CMS and have my blog link to a page with my photography on it. But I need the motivation, and I don't have it just now :)

It may be worth it to try out the WP option, you can set it up, import, and if you don't like it, delete the entire thing, and nothing is effected over at Blogger.
