I had a long talk with the Seattle Webloggers Meetup group and listened to their reasons for staying with the blogging software tool they use. I heard about what they liked and what they didn’t like about their blogging software tool. Many of them mentioned they had done a little research and WordPress was one of their options.
Before I share what they said, I’d like to ask you the same question. Tell me what blogging software tool you are using, if it is a hosted service or dedicated (full version you control on your own site), and what you like, and what you don’t like, about it.
And if you have been considering switching to WordPress but haven’t, why? What is stopping you or holding you back?
NOTE: Thank you to everyone for responding, but how about some specifics? What do you like and what do you not like about the different blogging tools? How did you handle the migration from one to the other? What features are critical to your blogging needs, and does your blogging tool provide them? What do you wish it had? What do you wish it didn’t do? Are you currently shopping around for a better blogging tool? Then what features are you looking for? If you like WordPress, whatever version, what do you wish it had that other blogging tools have. You are the folks working these blogs, so I consider you experts on what makes a good blogging tool, so what is it?
