Several bloggers have suggested switching to Wordpress.
I decided to give it a try. Here it is if you'd like to take a peak. I titled it Kay's Musings. This is the link to it.
I don't really understand Wordpress yet. I haven't even figured out how to put a blog roll on it and won't bother. It's too much for my technology challenged mind to absorb and understand. Things are just not very intuitive for me on Wordpress.
However, since I've been worried about backing things up, I thought I'd just back up my Blogspot blog on Wordpress. I don't want to switch over completely because I think you lose a lot of the connections you make. I also like a lot of the Blogspot options. So, I'm NOT moving from Blogger, but I'm feeling a little safer knowing I have a back-up option in place. Phew!
POSTSCRIPT: I'm seeing in my Comments that some of you might be interested in backing up your blog on Wordpress also. To save you some trouble since it took me a while to figure this out, you can go to the Tools on the left hand bar of the Wordpress Site Admin and IMPORT all of your Blogger posts and comments with one Magic Button.
The only problem I had was that it also imported all the "Labels" I had on Blogger and changed it to Categories that I then had to delete. That's where I am now. I have no idea yet how to create a blogroll link for places I like to visit, but since I'm only using Wordpress as a back-up, I figure I won't worry about it.
