WordPress is the darling of the blogging world these days. What’s not to love? It’s geeky under the hood and it’s free, a wicked combination.
Me, I’m quite happy with Movable Type and I have no immediate plans to switch. I’m getting more than my $69 out of it. Truth is, either is a fine choice. There are some fantastic WP blogs out there now…after 3.5 years I just prefer to stick with what I know I know.
…However, now I must say goodbye. Wisdump uses WordPress for many of the reasons that pushed me towards MT in the first place. Using WP, I am filled with the same excitement that I used to have with MT that I wish never left. I stuck around for as long as I could, endured two instances of losing data from my database and patiently waited a total of 90 days, 17 hours and 48 minutes for my templates and archives to rebuild. I’m not saying WP is any better than MT, I just feel better using it and to me, I am what is most important.
I’m sorry, I don’t mean to laugh…but I did.
It’s kind of like standing on a stage to make your big exit speech… and then you walk smack into the door on your way out of the room.
