I have been blogging for sometime now using blogengine.net I have decided to changed my blogging platform to WordPress yes you heard it right after pondering over this for about four weeks i finally made up my mind to make the move sadly i love blogengine.net because this platform is one that i can easily tweak because of my experience with asp.net. As we all know WordPress is a very powerful blogging platform and is used by some of the world most popular blogger.
After months of evaluation, trials and errors while running some test blogs using WordPress i now decided that the time is right to migrate to WordPress , this will take my blog where i want it to be.
There are many reasons why i have decided to to switch blogging platformbut the main reasons why i migrated to WordPress is because of its flexibilty and its simplicity at which things can be done with wordpress, without any doubt wordpress is moving at a fast space in terms of its developments ,plugins ,themes and blogging comunity you can even find bloggers running wordpress as thier blogging platform and and posting blogging tips about aother platforms like blogger or blogengine.net.
WordPress WordPress what more can i say it is so such an advance content management system which offers features like automatic upgrades with the click of a button just one click nothing to uninstall or reinstal and over ride.
There are thousands of ready made themes available for down load under the Gnu licence this takes the worries of creating templates away and lets you concentrate on what you need to do most writing post changing or installing themes is so simple just login to your admin panel search find a theme upload and then activate installing templates is so simple and straight forward even a novice can do it.
