When I started this blog a year ago, it was an experiment. So many blogs on my blogroll had moved from Blogger to WordPress that I thought I’d have a look at WordPress to see what it could do. The “new and improved” Blogger had lost a lot of its functionality, and the new owners, Google, seemed to be in no hurry to fix it.
In the end I decided not to move my Notes from underground blog from Blogger, but to use both, and to use whichever seemed to be best for the task.Most of the Blogger bugs are fixed now, and there are still somethings it does better or more easily than WordPress.
