- Customizable. You can make WordPress do just about anything, it seems, by simply finding and uploading the right plugin. Like today, I wanted a plugin to selectively remove the “nofollow” on commenters’ links (coming soon). I Googled “selectively remove nofollow links wordpress” and found a big list of plugins to do just that in a few different ways.
- I feel professional, probably partially because this is the platform I blog with for work.
- It’s pretty easy to use, though there is a bit of a learning curve.
- I feel cool when I get to fiddle with things in the back end. Half the time I’m working on my site, I’ve got WordPress and my file manager or FTP open, uploading plugins and tweaking files.
- It’s a complete content management system. No comments on that one… Sorry.
- All sorts of cool built-in features like password protecting posts and trackbacks (couldn’t do that with Blogger!) and lots of stuff.
Of course, WordPress isn’t for everyone. If you want to, you can stay with Blogger. I give you permission.
