Which blogging platform do you guys prefer? Blogger or WordPress?
I would like to start a blog in which I can blog about daily situations, new projects, random moments, and so forth. I am an artist/designer and I really would love to be able to keep my readers updated with matters happening with my art.
I would like a blogging platform that will allow me easy access when mobile, a blog that I can design myself 100%; easily, a blogging platform that I’ll be able to link to my website and so much more. Which do you guys recommend? I tried WordPress, but it gets a bit confusing after a while. I really do like it’s set up, but what do you guys like about Blogger?
Blogger is simpler, but I want to make sure that I’m making the right choice when it comes to choosing a blogging platform. I will be blogging in VERY often and if I decided to move to WordPress, would I be able to move successfully and move my old posts?
Please provide me with full detail pertaining to my choice!
Thank you so much!
For a long time WordPress has been an innovator and leader of blogging platforms. However, in the past few months, Blogger, owned by Google, has been catching up to the point where there is little incentive for people to go to the trouble of installing their own CMS for an activity that seldom covers expenses. It seems that most people who switch to WordPress from Blogger are not aware that they can use a custom domain name with Blogger. It is clear to me that for most people, Blogger represents the better platform, whether we consider WordPress.com or WordPress.org (self-hosted).
Who would vote for Mitt Romney on his record?
I have finally, after extensive research found part of his record. Wow, what a record.!! I am posting my findings with this question for those who doesn’t like to open web sites.

They threw hard balls at the former Massachusetts governor and he hit them all, many out of the park. Romney’s allocation of time had to be disproportionate, but that was the Williams/Russert choice, and Romney made the most of it.” (Hugh Hewitt, “‘General Hillary Clinton’ And ‘They’re Doing It In Europe Now,’” Townhall Blog, http://hughhewitt.townhall.com/, Posted 1/24/08)

American Spectator’s Wlady: “Terrific Romney answer to Russert’s nosiness about how much he’s spent in Florida. Russert’s mistake: his insinuation that he was asking the question on behalf of the people’s right to know. Romney instead let it be known he’ll report his spending on Jan. 31, as required by law; and there’s no reason to give his opponents a competitive advantage.” (Wlady, “Rich Man, Poor Man,” AmSpec Blog, http://www.amspec.org/, Accessed 1/24/08)

- Lewis: “He also did a good job of going after the Clintons — something that McCain should have actually done more of.” (Matt Lewis, “GOP Debate Analysis: Florida Now A Two-Man Race,” Townhall Blog, www.townhall.com, Posted 1/24/08)
- Lewis: “Romney was ahead in the last Florida poll I saw, and since nothing that happened tonight is likely to radically upset the apple cart, he wins tonight merely by maintaining the status quo.” (Matt Lewis, “GOP Debate Analysis: Florida Now A Two-Man Race,” Townhall Blog, www.townhall.com, Posted 1/24/08)
What They’re Really Saying About Governor Mitt Romney At The Boca Raton, FL GOP Debate
Thursday, Jan 24, 2008 11:11 PM EDT
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough: “I think conservatives probably related to Mitt Romney, talking about tax cuts, talking about being a governor, talking about what he did in the private sector for all those years. On the economic part of this debate, I don’t think there is any doubt that this was Mitt Romney’s best performance.” (MSNBC’s “Live,” 1/24/08)
- Scarborough: “The first 30 minutes – it was about the economy. I thought Mitt Romney absolutely dominated that segment of it.” (MSNBC’s “Live,” 1/24/08)

Townhall’s Mary Katharine Ham: “Romney just stole that issue from both Rudy and McCain. His answer was intelligent and far-reaching. I liked the idea of high-risk areas getting together to pool risk. Rudy’s been trying to pander with this idea and I think both Romney and McCain made the pandering look silly by taking a broader approach.” (Mary Katharine Ham, “The Cat Fund,” Townhall Blog, http://www.townhall.com/, Posted 1/24/08)
National Review’s Kate O’Beirne: “Romney’s insights about his state’s National Guard was helpful. He seems particularly aggressive and sure-footed tonight.” (Kate O’Beirne, “On Offense,” National Review’s The Corner, http://corner.nationalreview.com/, Posted 1/24/08)

Governor Mitt Romney Lays Out The Vision To Strengthen America
Thursday, Jan 24, 2008 10:38 PM EDT
Tonight, Romney for President Communications Director Matt Rhoades released the following statement on the Florida Republican presidential debate:
“The economic challenges confronting our country were central to tonight’s debate. Governor Romney is the only candidate with a record of working in the real economy and creating jobs. That experience was on display tonight. He understands how to create jobs and how to bring change. That is the leadership we need in Washington, and in a few short days, the people of Florida will cast their votes for change in this country.”
Straight Talk Detour: McCain On Republican Vote Totals
Thursday, Jan 24, 2008 10:30 PM EDT
McCain Falsely Claimed That He Won Among Republicans In NH And SC
In Tonight’s Debate, Sen. McCain Falsely Claimed That He Won The Republican Vote In Both New Hampshire And South Carolina:
MCCAIN: “But Look, I Won The Majority Of Republican Vote In Both New Hampshire And South Carolina.” (MSNBC, [Unverified Transcript], Republican Presidential Candidate Debate, Boca Raton, FL, 1/24/08)
However, Sen. McCain Lost In Both New Hampshire And South Carolina Among Self-Identified Conservatives And Republicans :
McCain Lost Among Self-Identified Republicans In New Hampshire. “In New Hampshire, a state McCain had won in 2000 and lavished time and attention on this time around, he lost self-identified Republicans narrowly — 35 percent to 34 percent — to former governor Mitt Romney. But, it was among independents where McCain’s winning margin came as he won that bloc by 13 points over Romney.” (Chris Cillizza, “McCain And The Closed Primary Challenge,” Washington Post’s The Fix, http://blog.washingtonpost.com/, 1/24/08)
McCain Lost Among Republicans In South Carolina. “In South Carolina, McCain lost Republicans by a statistically insignificant margin, but carried independents by a massive 42 percent to 25 percent margin — ensuring his narrow three-point victory.” (Chris Cillizza, “McCain And The Closed Primary Challenge,” Washington Post’s The Fix, http://blog.washingtonpost.com/,1/24/08)
Conservatives Are Wary Of McCain’s Past Tendencies And Willingness To Team Up With Liberal Senators. “McCain has long had difficulty currying favor from his party’s conservative wing. Despite his solid voting record in the senate, many ardent Republicans have been unhappy with his past willingness to team up with liberal Sens. Russ Feingold on campaign finance reform and Ted Kennedy on immigration.” (Alexander Mooney, “McCain Brushes Aside Suggestion Of Weak Republican Support,” http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/01/20/mccain-brushes-aside-suggestion-of-weak-republican-support/, 1/20/08)
“Support from the base will be crucial in upcoming contests: McCain now faces a bevy of state primaries where independents are not allowed to participate, beginning with Florida’s vote on January 29. But the Arizona senator is predicting that his support among veterans, his economic proposals, and his record on environmental issues important to many Floridians will carry him to victory there.” (Alexander Mooney, “McCain Brushes Aside Suggestion Of Weak Republican Support,” http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/01/20/mccain-brushes-aside-suggestion-of-weak-republican-support/, 1/20/08)

I have one prescription that costs more than the insurance cost in Mass.
I would. In terms of economic policies, he is very smart. As a fiscal conservative, he impresses me with his limiting government, pro-individual stances.
Help needed related to blogging?
A friend of mine wants to start a blog, in order to gradually raise money for an organization working against Child Sexual Abuse. She has a really good idea about what she wants to blog about. But she’s not sure if the idea is good enough to compell people to subscribe to her blog. I told her to give it a try, because she won’t know otherwise. So she wrote a prospective first blog entry. We need your help to review it and tell us if you liked it or not. Will you be interested to subscribe to such a blog? Will others be interested? Is it a good idea? Will we be able to successfully raise money for a social cause? Please spare two minutes of your time to read the entry and provide us with feedback. Thank you so much! It means a lot to us!
” Ahhhhhhhh! I feel so elated and inspired! And I don’t even know why! I have a feeling it’s one of those days when you just want to do something crazy, for the heck of embracing life. I also have a feeling that the above said feeling is due to the current weather outside. The weather, as we speak, is currently 26°C, with a light drizzle, wind at 14km/hr and humidity at 57%. It’s July, goddamit! Local time- 19:48 (Indian Standard Time), Thursday, July 21st.
When I woke up this morning, little did I know that I would actually be attempting to create my own blog, or whatever you want to call it. Doesn’t it seem so much easier to sit back and just read what everyone else blogs about? I mean, if you created your own blog, it would just be a FAIL, unless you got people to actually read it. And why would they read it, when they have a million other blogs to read and a million other things to do? But! I’m still going to take my chances. I’m going to teach you how to live! I mean, of course you know how to live. But I’m going to teach you how to seize the day! CARPE DIEM!
But why must I do this? I lived a pretty ordinary life, until one day when I woke up and decided that I’m going to seize every single moment of every single day, henceforth. Believe me, just thinking about it, made me feel a hell lot better about myself! My future didn’t seem quite so uncertain. I stopped worrying about the small troubles that we all encounter in life. And! I feel so incredible right now! I want to actually DO all the things on my “bucket list”, rather than just making a bucket list for the sake of it. I want to embrace life! Okay, I may have already pointed that out. But I don’t care! I feel happy! And I feel like it’s my duty to the world to spread this happiness! I’M GOING TO GO TO LONDON! I’M GOING TO CREATE MY OWN BLOG…WELL, MAYBE! I’M GOING TO WALK UP AND TALK TO RANDOM PEOPLE ON THE ROAD AND MAKE THEM LAUGH! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
But first, I have to go have dinner. I’ll be back soon! Until then, seize the friggin’ day, y’all! Cheers!”
I stopped reading at the first blasphemy! All caps is shouting. Blog is written very badly.
