Switching To WordPress

I’ve been using blogger for a few years now but have found it a little restrictive of late and have seen a few peoples who’s blogs I read use WordPress so I thought id sign up and see what all the fuss was about. First impressions are good, I like the amount of options you have with it as well as little features that aren’t in blogger like the word count and the ease of using categories, admittedly I will probably never use the categories function but to have the option there is always nice!

I’ve imported all the posts I did on blogger across with varied success. It seems that a lot of the fonts are different as well as the colours not always matching, I presume this is because of the way I originally posted them in blogger, I know this is not a massive issue but is something that will bug me until I fix it as that’s just the way I am. Another little annoyance is the layout of photographs depending on which theme you use, again I fear this is because of how I originally resized and positioned them and unless im prepared to go through and change each of them individually is something I am going to have to put up with. Anyone who knows me will already know that I will be spending a lot of hours putting this right!

All in all im glad ive made the transition and once I find a theme and layout I like and have edited to my tastes I will port the url to www.thefincher.com and have it as my homepage instead of my current blogger one. Seems times are a changing and I for one don’t want to be left behind!

That’s all for now
