Blogger vs. WordPress–Lots of Questions for You…

(blogging–this post has two parts)

Part A)

I’m still working on 100 things for my 100th post and need more ideas from you. So the two questions for today are:

1) What are your favorite writing books? For example, Self-editing for Fiction Writers

2) What are your favorite author (or other public people) websites?

I don’t know about you, but I’m into website designs right now, checking out all kinds of people, and not just authors. I love seeing how their websites reflect their personalities. I love seeing all the options for sharing who you are. Some of my favorites are James DashnerWill Smiththe Script. Which ones do you like?

*** And if you missed the four other questions, you can answer them below as well.

3) Who is your favorite author? 

4) What is your favorite writing tip? 

5) What is your favorite website for writing tips? 

6) What words are most overused in your (or other’s) writing?

Part B)

I’m thinking about making the switch from Blogger to WordPress. ARGH!!!!

I’ve tried Blogger now for about eight months and I have to say, it still drives me crazy. I should be able to do more than I can, and I don’t think all of that is due to my ineptitude. I’ve played around with WordPress for about a week. There is still a lot I can’t do, but I’m thinking I’ll figure more out with time. However, I’m too cheap to buy the ability to customize it. Then again, some of my favorite blog designs I’ve seen recently are on WordPress. Yeah. Can you tell I’m torn?

Any of you out there use WordPress? Did you switch from Blogger? Do you use the custom template or make do with the available ones? How did you keep your followers, or did you? Or is there a better blogging site out there? Help!

Here’s my potential blog on WordPress. Check it out here and tell me what you think.

It would be ironic if my 100th post ends up being in a new blogging platform–or maybe that’s the perfect time to make the switch.

Thanks for answering all the questions. I know I asked a lot but I LOVE hearing from you guys.

Have a great one.
