Blogspot remains user friendly.
Wordpress is also user friendly. But WP has been upgraded into many version and it has become complicated. I prefer only having the Save, Publish and Preview button like Blogspot. No need to have those extra settings. I wish I can hide them just to ease my mind.
Besides that, Blogspot has upgraded their interface, dashboard, (draft version is available too) and widget element window. I’m not sure if there’s more.
Blogspot coding is much easier
Wordpress layout requires lot of PHP coding. I was like having a culture shock when shifting from Blogger Template Code to understanding PHP code. Blogger Template Code is much more easier to type, remembered and digested. If you put wrong PHP code, then you will be in trouble. So Blogspot coding really rocks.
New layout design
During the last weekend, I’ve wasted my time redesigning my Blogspot and Portfolio Blog. I’m not into graphic design at the moment, so I just play with the CSS and DHTML.
I realise that whenever I commented on Blogspot blogs, people will click my name and they will be taken into my Blogger profile. If they click on ‘My Website’, they will be taken to AdlanKhalidi.com. I do have a nostalgic moment with the old blogs. So I will update them with a fresh content entitled “Snippets of thoughtless thoughts. I love the header banner which is made with Jalur Gemilang.
While another blog is meant for my studio project from my early days in IIUM Matriculation Centre under AED department, until my second year in KAED Gombak campus. I just play around with the DHTML script with simple graphic header. My portfolio is everywhere. This is the earliest one because it shows my studio project. Pretty nostalgic too.
The conclusion here is that, blogging platform is not that important. The important thing is what you blog about and how your blog contribute to yourself and your readers.
