A while back I was flirting with the idea of moving to WordPress but never took the plunge and crossed over. I preferred WordPress over Blogger for a number of reasons, in particular the commenting system which is not only far prettier than bloggers horrible pop-up box business but is also more secure from spammers. The main disadvantage I found with WordPress.com was that I couldn’t edit the CSS without paying for the privilege and I also had to pay to use my http://www.miriamparkinson.com domain name.
Yesterday, I attended WordCamp Melbourne and that got me all excited about blogging and wordpress again so I’ve decided to front up the (fairly insignificant) cash to buy my upgrades and be done with it.
So, welcome to my new and (hopefully) improved blog. Perhaps I may even write in it 🙂
