I’m considering yet another blog software migration, and am soliciting recommendations / suggestions.
I started with Blogger, then went to Movable Type, to TypePad, and back to MT. I’m currently considering a switch to WordPress (independently hosted) because MT, as currently configured on this blog, is slower than I’d prefer, I’m pretty sure I’m losing comments (because I get emails from frequent commenters), and the Trackbacks haven’t worked in months.
I have worked with a very good WP consulting group for a different blog, and have some experience both with them and WordPress, so I don’t think it’d be bad, and might be a good change. The consultants say they can get everything moved over without losing the basenames Google has already learned, and can get me close with a new template.
Does anyone recommend one blog engine over another, what experience do you have, and why? I want to know before I make the next decision.
