gentle reader, I need your advice
As we (or at least I) approach the one-year anniversary of this here blog, I've been giving some thought to moving out of the blogspot neighborhood. While Blogger has been mostly good to me, I'm feeling somewhat constrained by its limitations, and I've been wandering around the blogosphere feeling jealous of other people's ability to customize (& categorize!) their blogs.
But I'm nervous.
Will changing blog platforms lose me the small but loyal following that I currently enjoy?
Will I lose all my old posts and comments?
Will I need to pay someone to make the transition?
Will I have to remember all the sites that I'm currently listed on and re-list myself with a new url?
So, internet, I'm asking you for help.
Do you have a story of your own transition from one blogging platform to another to tell? Can you help me avoid the pitfalls? What's the blogging service that you currently use, and what do you like about it? If you're a Blogger user, why do you stay? (I don't mean that to sound harsh--I'm just interested in what other people find useful about Blogger.) And what other kind of blog services do you regularly use? Are you a Bloglines junkie, like me? Blog Explosion? Technorati? Some other thing I've not yet heard of?
It's time to gush (or vent)!
