I’ve been debating about moving this site from Blogger to WordPress for awhile now. It seems so much easier to deal with comment replies, and I like their tagging system better than Blogger’s. The photo and text formatting has been annoying me lately. Through playing around with a secondary blog, I’ve also learned that it’s really simple to pre-write a post on my Kindle through their app, and then go back and add photos and links when I can get to my computer, which is really helpful since I can write while trapped on the couch with an eating or napping baby. For some reason, there isn’t a Blogger app, at least not an official one. Not that it would make a difference, because I’m using the official app on my phone and this is my third attempt at writing this post. It loses a huge chunk every time I put the phone down and have to reopen the app. (Incidentally, this is also how my flamingo skirt post got wrecked. Grr.)
But sewandso is already taken at WordPress. And I have 8 years’ worth of posts, comments and mostly Google-hosted photos that would have to transfer successfully to make it worthwhile. I just don’t have time to reconstruct on the photo end of things in particular. So here’s what I’m wondering:
-How much work would be involved in getting this up and running again if I made the switch? Particularly photos and links to previous posts.
-What would you do about the name? I’m still rather fond of this one, since I’ve always been a multicrafter who just happens to sew the most.
-Is it worth the effort?
Thanks in advance for feedback…. And here’s hoping this stupid app doesn’t eat my words again.
