Yes, my first new post after moving in here from blogger last night. It went without difficulties: Exported my blog in “xml”-data-format and stored it on the hard drive, made an account with WordPress, imported it and here I am. The look and feel are very different – but yes, after four years using a software transition is not too easy.
The customizing is different from blogger, but basically you choose from a large palette of templates and then come up with some tweaks. I looked for a simple one. I still did not manage to insert html-code into a text-widget, it simply does not work: Either the code simply vanishes or it does not work as code and is displayed as text. I would like to have another clock here. The inserting of youtubes is a bit different – but all this is manageable. Generally the WordPress-environment has a more “typographic” feeling to it, what I like very much. Maybe I will change the template later, but now it works for me.
You know how it is when freshly moved in – things are not at the place they used to be, one has to search (and destroy?) things, and it smells of wet paint.
I now declare the kindergarten open!
