Mine has slowly evolved from a mostly-book blog, to a book-personal-writing blog to an scattershot catch-all for whatever I'm doing.

34cathyskye
aug 20, 2008, 10:39am

Jen--I created a "test blog" so I could experiment without disrupting anyone who might be reading my book blog and then did a google search for "3 column blog templates". It took some trial and error because with several templates the code just wouldn't work. I finally found a template with code that would work properly in Blogger. Then I went to my book blog, copied the code from a few widgets, pasted the code onto the template on my test blog to see if they'd work. Voila! A pain in the butt, but worth it. It's still not exactly the template I want, but until I teach myself more HTML/XML/whatever, I'm happy. If you want to talk more about it, just send me an email-- cathyskye@yahoo.com .

okt 1, 2008, 12:05pm

I started a book blog in August:

http://postediting.blogspot.com/

It caters only to the romance genre, and blogs are focused on what worked and what didn't. Thus, it has spoilers, but the idea is to only read the ones on books you've already completed.

Always looking for guest bloggers, so if you love romance but you've plenty of pent-up criticism, please consider doing a guest blog!

http://www.oldshoesnewbooks.wordpress.com

But I was wondering what people think of the pros and cons of using wordpress over blogger or vice-versa. Which do you use and why? I really like how easy it is to change the look of a wordpress blog, but I've heard blogger is easier to network with.

Any thoughts?

691dragones
aug 1, 2010, 9:19pm

I can't speak to the pros and cons of working with Wordpress because I haven't. When I looked into starting a blog there, I didn't like what I saw (too complicated to work with) so I didn't start a blog. And time passed.

Then I looked at blogger. Frankly, I don't care for how blogger is built either (getting to the dashboard and other control areas requires non-intuitive navigation). I also don't like that, in the past, blogger has restricted friends of mine from accessing their own blogs - "checking to see if the blog is being used to spam people" was the excuse given just because the blog in question was getting higher traffic than usual. My friends had not done anything wrong, and their access was later restored. That was just Blogger's way of being overly assertive about their ownership of the domain... While this nonsense took place several years ago, I have not forgtten nor forgiven the Blogger team for being so aggressive for no good reason.

So, more time passed. I took a class on creating background graphics for your blog. I created a blog on the Blogger domain specifically for that class, but have essentially done nothing with it after the class ended. Why? Because the dashboard area is too intricate and difficult to work with quickly. It takes lots of time that I don't have to do anything with a blog there. The one nice thing about the dashboard area of Blogger is that from just one dashboard, you could manage multiple blogs if you set them all up under one user name and have need of more than one.

As for networking, yes, that's easily done on Blogger, if you mean "following" someone else's blog. That's all I use my Blogger for - the convenient links to blogs I'm interested in reading.

My book blog remains at http://blogs.delphiforums.com/dragonviews because I have not found anywhere I like better... even though Delphiforums provides only minimal features for the blog and you have to pay for a DelphiPlus membership to get the blog in the first place, and must maintain the DelphiPlus membership to keep the blog... The arrangement works because I'd be DelphiPlus without the blog anyway, so having my blog there isn't an extra expense for me.

70emilyfj
aug 4, 2010, 9:56am

thanks dragones! your blog looks great!

i think i've started to get the hang of working with wordpress - you're right, it looks very complicated but once you explore it a bit it becomes pretty easy.

and what you said about blogger - well that's just ridiculous! i'm glad i didn't sign up with them!

71PamFamilyLibrary
aug 4, 2010, 12:21pm

Gee, never heard of those problems with Blogger and I've been there 3+ years. I have seen people though who have lost their blogs when fly-by-nite companies go under. (Back-up, back-up, back-up because companies never let you know when they're in financial trouble).

WP is probably a superior format, has tons of apps/widgets, but I've seen people like Inkygirl leave because of lack of security. (I forget where she ended up.)

But I (we, as there are 3 regular contributors) like things simple. Plus, Google scans us within minutes... to a few hours.

721dragones
aug 5, 2010, 9:42am

I compose all of my reviews in notepad, so I have the basic text and HTML links (if any) saved on my hard drive. I also have backups of my backups... times about three... and most reviews are copied to at least one other website as well as being posted on my blog. I think I have the backups covered.
