I have probably already mentioned or you have already figured it out but I finally made the switch to Word Press. I know I haven’t lost my followers and that it directs them to my site but because I’ve had several people tell me that they haven’t gotten updates and I can’t see my google followers anymore, I am freaking out a little.
I know it isn’t about the followers or the numbers (I lost my page views from blogger and had to start over and I was nearing 50,000) but when I write, it feels good to know someone is reading. I was averaging a lot more than two comments a post before I left so that tells me that readers might not be getting my updates.
If you want to get updates and you used to be a google follower and are no longer seeing me in your reader, put your email in the “Subscribe” box and you’ll get an email when I write something new. If you are on Facebook and we are friends, you’ll get it in my status updates. If you are on Facebook and we aren’t friends, you can click “Like” over there on the side and you’ll get it that way. I also post it on Twitter so you can follow me that way, too.
Just want you all to know that I appreciate that you are reading and it makes me feel good to get feedback and know you are out there so thank you!
Any Word Press users have any advice? Any widgets that are a must have? Any plugins (I have looked at the forums and got some good advice there but just want to cover all bases)? Or just tell me that it was a smart move.
