Wordpress vs Blogger

It came to my attention that on Blogger, a blog can be disabled at anytime. I don't like the idea of this. So, I decided to check out Wordpress to see if it was an option for me. As I was looking through Wordpress, I came to the conclusion that it seems very confusing.

I imported one of my blogs from blogger to wordpress. It seems just the titles were imported. Therefore, in order to get each of my posts on word press... I'd have to manually transfer them. Then, I came up to a situation where I have a home video posted on Blogger. Wordpress won't let free accounts to add video's. This is a bummer.

So, all you wordpress users out there.... can you give me some tips for a new wordpress user? I'd love to have a nice background and fonts... but this too looks to be only for those who pay. :-/

Perhaps someone can help me out here and tell me some tips on making this easier. I don't want to loose my blog. Therefore, I'd love to make my own rules by purchasing my own domain and what-not after the holidays.

Ok... get those idea's coming... I'm feeling very over-whelmed here.


  1. Hm...why would a blogger blog become disable?

  2. Google has these robot things that detect spam. Some times they mistaken blogs that aren't really spam and disable them. I know a person who had this happen to them. She switched immediately from blogger to her own site. She said it was hard to get in touch with Google because there's no email or phone number to reach them. There's only the forums.

  3. Hi -- in order to do what you want things to do, you will need to buy hosting (kind of like renting space in an office building) -- I myself use BlueHost
    (easy to use, reasonable price, LOTS of tutorials) -- you will then have to sign up for (self-hosted...) - gives you a LOT more me via my Contact page at if you have questions....
