Bye Bye Blogger?

Okay, I just copied all my blogger posts (on to my wordpress blog on

I did this because I want:

  1. daily automatic backups on the server so that I can rollback
  2. manual backups to my local pcs, in case the server dies
  3. to be able to hack all aspects of the blogging code, not just html templates
  4. to host my blog on not
  5. to be able to move my blog to any *AMP server later

On the downside, I realize that:

  1. blogger seemed easier out-of-the-box than wordpress
  2. blogger felt like part of a community (whereas is very isolated)
  3. blogger may have some stats that wordpress on doesn't (dunno for sure)
  4. every minute I spend hacking the code is a minute I'm not writing posts (or music)

Okay, that's it for now.
