I have two blogs hosted by Google/Blogger (a blog for work, life and general stuff that interests me) and WordPress (a blog just for work). I differentiate these on the basis of content type as opposed to areas of interest. That is, purely commercial (or tech-commercial) stuff goes to the WordPress one.
And yet, I wonder, what is the point? With the ability to group, tag, label and so on, I can collect similar articles together in a variety of ways. Anyone with half a brain, left or right, would be able to see that any articles I have labelled “business” are probably more commercially-oriented that ones labelled “may contain nuts”.
The problem is, I don’t want to miss the party – anywhere. WordPress blogs seem, by some opinion, so popular that it makes me wonder if WordPress is more of a writer’s platform than blogger, and that blogger is something more akin to myspace for the blogosphere – a kind of scrawly, messy, throw-together-but-informative kind of creative jumble. Perhaps I’m being harsh of others’ blogger blogs, even if I’m being slightly too kind to my own… 😉
Conversely, the opinions cited in various threads (1, 2, 3) would suggest that Blogger is the way to go, at least for feedback options and template customisability.
Regardless, I am not entirely convinced that either system is, actually, tremendously brilliant. Maybe I’d be a better person to judge once I’ve committed a thousand or two- more articles to cyberspace and then regret/celebrate making the wrong/right choice.
Then everyone would really thank me for my opinion. Then disregard it. 😉
