Why is WordPress better than Blogger?

  1. I started out with a blogger blog http://www.cashblog-n.com and found blogger to be very easy to use. I added
    Yahoo Bable Fish Translator as well as Feedjit, both of which I would like to add to my WordPress blog
    but you can't.
    I have a lot to learn about Worpress and will concentrate on that blog because it's more accepted.
    I also plan on switching over to a hosted blog with which I can add or do anything I want(I think?)
    Anyway blogging in general is way cool not static like a regular web site is.
    I guess if you're just stating out Blogger is easier, but if your serious about it(I am)then you should use a hosted WordPress blog.

  2. I also looked for some sort of on click translation service for the readers, but eventually came up with something of my own using Pipes and Google. Take a look at my site, you'll see a text widget on the right if you scroll down a little.

    Nice I like that translation work around... :)

    Great idea, You should write a tutorial post
    for other WordPress members on how to achieve
    that great work around... :)

  4. Yes, a lot of people would want to see that.

  5. I'm also interested ismailimail, please do a post. I think a translator could really help increase traffic to your blog! Plus I just like to make my blog as user friendly as possible.

  6. Thanks for the compliment. It is actually very simple. The site translation is just a Google Translation link over the flag icon. The feed translation is through Yahoo Pipe's translation service. I combined two of my blogs plus the comment and plugged it into Pipe's Loop-Translate module. You can take a look: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/person.info?eyuid=ZCvwYmg6u2743OPphOGME2dYcA-- Then I grabbed the Pipe's output feed and plugged it over RSS icon, all in a text widget.

    I can tell you though that providing translation does work as I have seen my readership grow with more diversity.

  7. It looks like we, here at wordpress.com, in our comfortable community, need a place to just shoot the breeze. I'm sure the original question-poster of this thread is long gone...days ago.

  8. Yes, but the question comes up once a month or so. If people post to it, it's just theoretically possible that the search function could find it again. Not likely, given the functionality of the Search, but possible.

  9. @rgkillam-have you visited the off-topic forum? Its threads never make it to the front page of the support forum.

    @ismailimail-totally brilliant! This is exactly what is so fantastic about the support forum.

  10. WordPress -
    Support excellent - I posted an enquiry and got a response within 10 minutes.
    Language support -I need to be able to compose the blog in English and release it in German - WP brilliant !!

  11. Hey there. I first tried blogging with Blogger, and honestly, I felt that by the time you actually created and got a design for it, you'll be exhausted. It takes way too much time to just set up your blog, and besides, for a someone like me who doesn't know how to use CSS, it's pretty difficult to add certain features. Many might say that just because WP doesn't support java it isn't worthwhile, but I've never really had any problems without them. But anyways, these are just my opinions and I'm going to stick with WP for a long time. Have fun blogging!

  12. @justjennifer - I never knew that about the off-topic...cool, thanks. Even though I've been addicted to reading forum threads lately, I always thought those topics in the sidebar were just categories of the threads appearing on the main forum page. Are the threads on the main page somehow hand-picked then?

  13. WordPress Rocks!!!

  14. @rgkillam-nope. The only forum threads that don't appear on the front page are the ones in the Off-topic forum. (Sorry for the late reply.)
