WordPress can do everything that Blogger can do and more. Even though Blogger is free all around, in the end, I still believe you get what you pay for.
If you happen to be ready to transfer from Blogger to a self-hosted WordPress blog and are interested in how Sashwhy’s Studio can help, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
For a personal blog, if you aren’t worried about it having any downtime or possibly disappearing at anytime, the cost of hosting and a domain name may be a con. For any business and any person that has numerous readers and numerous posts in which they count on being there for future reference, that cost would be well worth it.
Possessing a website is a huge strategy to supplement your present advertising. For all those businesses that wish to sell on-line unfortunately the fundamental website isn’t going to do. A website is important as it helps you establish credibility for a merchant or company. Your website must keep updated with modifications in your enterprise.
Using your site for a showcase or portfolio too is a potent tool which builds trust. Aside from all of the basic things you must enhance your website (contact information, services, products etc) a website may also turn into a focal point for your own customers to get the information they may be looking for. No matter what you do or represent, a webpage is a significant strategy to showcase your talents and merchandises for your own clients to see.
There are quite a number of free templates for use, use CSS to customize the design to your liking or you have the option of hiring a designer if you desire.
Design. While you can customize and tweak the designs, you are not 100% in control of the outcome. Many designers charge more for having to work with Blogger’s XML coding than the more widely used XHTML and others choose not to work with it at all.
If you are not interested in designing your own blog design, you can hire a custom blog designer. Blog designers are experienced in coding and design and will be able to create a beautiful and unique look for your blog. Take note of blogs whose design you really like and try to find out who designed it (you can usually find this out by locating a link or button in the blog saying “designed by”.
No matter what, your blog will have better success if you have a look and feel that represents you and that pleases your readers! It’s time to invest in a custom blog design!
Each blog is different and has a different “feel” because each person writing a blog is a unique individual! That being the case, each blog should reflect the uniqueness of the writer by the way that it looks. Setting up a custom blog design for your blog can take some time and energy (and most likely some money) but it will be worth it in the long run and will please both you and your readers.
What’s worse is that if you keep your “default” template that was given by your blog platform (whether Blogger, WordPress or whatever platform you went with) you will look just like the thousands of other bloggers who kept their default template too!
