A change for the better

After hosting my blog on Livejournal for quite some time, I have made a change and moved my blog to my own personal website.  I really like the idea of hosting my own blog software, adding enhancements, and otherwise making changes on my own.  Livejournal was nice, but a paid account does in fact cost money.  Why not just use my blog here and link to things on my own website.  The choice as to what to use was a more difficult one.  I tried b2evolution and wordpress, and I find wordpress to be a lot easier to use and more straightforward.  B2evolution had a lot of features that I just didn’t need.

So here I am with WordPress and I am pretty happy with it.  Importing all my old entries from Livejournal was very easy as well as the comments.  This is going to be a work in progress as I continue to read up on WordPress and how to use it.  So far, so good though.  I couldn’t be happier with this move.
