smokegecko Thoughts has moved from Blogger to WordPress. This marks the final stage in transition. The reasons for moving it over are technical and boring, but let me say this: if you are thinking about blogging, before you start decide where you want to host your blog and why.

Sure, it’s easy and quick to set up with Blogger and jump right in, but will the service you start with be sufficient for your needs in the future? If you need to switch things up, the further down the road the more difficult it becomes and the more problems you’ll encounter.

There are many different arguments for differnt set ups out there, and a quick Google query will give many ideas. In short, I wanted to have my own solution that I had complete control over, that I could host on my own site. So, to that end, the best solution for me is WordPress.
