WordPress is Amazing

I’ve been on WordPress less than a week and I can’t tell you how much I love WordPress. Things are so much easier to do here than on blogger. Here’s a few examples:

When I first moved over here I had a few issues. It was just getting used to the new way of doing things. The one thing I wanted to do was have all my awards on my menu bar. They just didn’t look right after I moved here, so I searched for creating a gallery. Here’s what I found: How to Create an Image Gallery in WordPress.

When I set up all these awards in blogger I did them one at a time after I resized each one of them. On WordPress you don’t have to do that. I saved all my awards on my desktop and then highlighted them and dumped them into my gallery, after choosing the thumbnail size. They started uploading until they were done. All 110 at the same time. I hit publish and I was done. I can do in a few minutes what took me hours in Blogger to do.

The commenting system is hands down miles ahead of Blogger commenting system.

The drag and drop photographs are amazing. It will fit into your post the right way without you having to resize. Just grab a corner and it will resize while maintaining proportions. So easy.

Word Press Support is fantastic.

There are plugins for tons of cool stuff.

All this and I’ve not even been here a week. Imagine what I’ll find out next week!

I should have moved here long ago.

If you use WordPress what do you love about this system?

      Moving the blog over wasn’t difficult. You do need to redirect from your Blogspot blog to your WordPress blog so people follow you. I did notice my post categories were all changed to uncatagorized. That was my biggest issue. πŸ™‚

    Glad to hear you are so happy with Word Press. Maybe I should try it. Your blog does look fantastic, Sandee. Anyway, Sandee and Zane, you all have one great Saturday.

    Your blog looks wonderful, easy to get around, and feels comfortable like home… πŸ™‚ I have been on WP since 2011 and I just learned three great things from you. I agree about the commenting system, especially between WP blogs. I love the ease of getting a post up. I love everything about WordPress except for right now my notification button is misbehaving. I know if I give it a few days it will straighten out. I am an inconsistent blogger, but WP can’t fix that… Ha! Welcome to WordPress and I enjoy your blog!

    Congrats on making the move over to WordPress. I wish you the best. If you get into trouble and want to learn more about WordPress you can take Blogging courses over at the Daily Post which is free. I took 3 courses. The Forums and Support is helpful.

    I first tried WP before deciding on Blogger.
    This was a long time ago πŸ™‚

    I am glad to hear WP is more functional now.
    Maybe I will come back to WP, one day.

    God bless your weekend, Sandee!!

    Hi Sandee, I sure love your new blog. I was able to download Mr. Linky. I have thought of moving both blogs too. DO you think I could handle it? So un-tech knowledgeable. Plus I can’t write or spell today. Hunger pains! Waiting on two goofy daughters so we can go checkout the 5280 Burger Bar downtown.The hubby and son and SIL’s are heading to our oldest sons house. Poker Game before the baby arrives. Must buy diapers for Brody to get into the game! That boy of ours is so darn clever. LOL! Blogger and google are so unfriendly.

    I moved over to wordpress briefly, but after a month or two, I realized that I liked blogger better. However, you are right about the comments – except that wordpress doesn’t really like blogger (and vise versa). I had to jump through hoops to be able to comment on wordpress blogs. It’s not a big deal now, but I have another blog on blogger and I can’t comment on wordpress when I’m signed into it. I need to find out how I got around that before.

      I felt the same for many years so I stayed with Blogger. Blogger has been having some issues of late and many got tired of dealing with them. Some couldn’t upload photographs for the posts, some had other issues. I had comment posting issues. It would take up to a minute or more for my comment to post. I don’t know about the sign in issues. I’ve had a WordPress account for years so I could leave comments on other WordPress blogs. πŸ™‚

    Ok you know I am nuts…ready for this? I LOVE reading your blog on WordPress and others, but I do not like WordPress (you know Dakota’s blog is there)…..I find Blogger to be easier for me to use……..but I love reading the WordPress blogs!

    • Comedy Plus says:

      WordPress is more difficult to learn, but once you do you can do so much and in such a small amount of time compared to Blogger. Like all my awards. It took me forever to do in blogger, and just a few minutes in WordPress. You are not nuts. πŸ™‚

    • Comedy Plus says:

      It’s pretty easy to do, and if you need help Mr. Linky has great customer service. They can walk you right through the plugin set up. πŸ™‚

    • Comedy Plus says:

      Grab the corner and pull to enlarge. There are tons of forums and WP help sites so just type in what you want to do and you’ll find many sites with the information you need. Here’s a site I’ve used quite a bit: WordPress Beginner. πŸ™‚

    Like I mentioned before I do have a WordPress account but haven’t worked with it enough to figure out how things work properly yet, I would consider moving over but not until I get comfortable with the formatting at least, I really like the way your header works, my header images may appear to be changing on blogger but that’s just me playing with pictures lol.

    Your page looks great by the way

    • Comedy Plus says:

      I just love WordPress. I remember years ago trying to use WordPress and it was so advanced I couldn’t figure most of it out. I’ve grown a lot since then and it’s pretty easy to use now. There are so many resources to help with WordPress. πŸ™‚

    We love WordPress. We went to Blogger with Nellie’s last blog. And with Marv’s we are back on WordPress. What can I say…There are benefits to both, but I do find that I prefer WordPress.

      I can see why people love WordPress so much. I had no idea how much better WordPress is. I am not trashing blogger, but WordPress is where I’m staying. πŸ™‚

    Hi Sandee, welcome to your new home! WordPress is fab. I too started out on Blogger, but it only took me two weeks to get frustrated enough to move to WP and I’ve never looked back. I do like the new look of your blog too. Very nice.
