If I leave here tomorrow

. . . would you still remember me?

I'm thinking of migrating over to Wordpress.  I've been playing around with it a little bit, and I might prefer its interface.  I also have an app on my iPod Touch that would let me draft posts without connecting to the internet. Big disadvantage: I don't think Wordpress lets commenters get notification of later comments without having a Wordpress account.

Any thoughts?

Please don't leave Blogger. WordPress just isn't the same. Besides, what are you going to do with your archives?

Personally, I prefer the Wordpress interface for blog admin and posting. There are some drawbacks to having a wordpress-hosted account (can't use Google analytics, etc.), but you can get that if you have your own site and use Wordpress with it. Micah's got a point about the archives, though, so it's a tough call.

I have no idea about whether non-wordpress users are notified of later comments, though. I never get notified of later comments on Blogger blogs, but that's mostly because I use the Name/URL option instead of my blogger or wordpress ID. I'd rather my name show up instead of "magnificentvista."

Are you on the old blogger editor or the new? The new one copies some of the best wordpress features, and you wouldn't have to migrate your archives. Although you could, it's just kind of a pain. You can switch to the new editor under 'general settings.'
