Need help picking blog site to use: Blogger, WordPress or Tumblr...or?
Am about to begin a blog to hopefully evolve into something bigger. Have checked out the templates for Blogger, WordPress and Tumblr. I like Blogger for it's simplicity and the AdSense (important component to me.) I like WordPress because of it's recovery design of not letting you lose your changes as you go along, and I really don't know much about Tumblr except that it's becoming popular.

Would so much appreciate input and opinions. :hi: :loveya:

1. I second this question
I've been looking at using WordPress for an information website with regular "news" updates plus a blog - on my own domain. I think it's flexible enough, but I feel like there will be a bit more of a learning curve than I want to deal with.

3. I have one on Word Press.
Edited on Mon Jun-27-11 06:57 PM by yellerpup
My husband is a computer whiz and he found WP a little obtuse. My website looks fine and I am able to moderate it, post articles and videos, update, edit, what-have-you on my own, so once it's set up it's not been difficult to use at all. If you want to check it out: http://www.vickismenu.com

My first article was: A Passion for Cooking

:hi:

Edit for typo

And P.S. If you don't make people sign in you will be flooded with spam.

6. I have a WordPress blog
Edited on Wed Jun-29-11 05:35 PM by MorningGlow
I like it a lot. It's easy to post stuff, and their stats reporting is very nice. I refrain from sharing my blog here on DU, but if you want to take a look at it, PM me and I'll send you the URL. :hi:

On edit: I haven't gotten much spam. Does that mean my blog is invisible? :cry:

9. Thanks to Whoa_Nelly and everyone who shared their thoughts.
You have convinced me to go for it using Word Press. I've used blogger, but I already have a domain and want this to be stand alone. Word Press sounds like a good solution if not the best.
