New York City & Wordpress

Hey there. I hope that everything is going well for everyone today. Today has been a very good day. the morning started with me doing some reading on some family ministry studies (very interesting) and then we had staff meeting. After staff meeting, I went up to the free clinic and did some filing. I just got back to the office and a package has come to me. It is from The reThink Group. I am looking forward to reading some of the magazine after Discovery Class tonight ( who we are study at church ) and then watching the videos tomorrow.

So, why the heading ?????

Two reasons.

One, I want to give a shout out to NYC.



I have only been to NYC once and that was mostly spent in Queens. But NYC (outside of the town that I live in) has the most views to my blog. Thus, I wanted to wave to them and give them a shout out.

The second is that I have been hearing "wordpress" everywhere I look. I am not too tech savy in certain areas. There are a few things that I can do. But I am not sure what I am missing at WordPress and I am not sure how to do a few things over there. Maybe, I need to spend some time over there and check into it. Maybe, I need some help from readers out there to help / instruct me. I set up a site, transfered some items over there so I can see what it would look like .. but I am dumbfounded ...

Jeff at WP

I am not posting there yet. I just imported things there. Anyone wanna help explain why I should / need to jump on this bandwagon and help me see the features that I can add there that I can not here. I am not fancy here ... obviously.

Thanks

Wow, I'm in the same boat. I know just enough about computers to be dangerous (to the computer!) I've set up a Wordpress account as well but don't know if I'll ever really use it or not.

Without me knowing the features / tabs in WP, I am here for the time being. We will see. If i get some tech help and understand functions better, maybe.

But, at the present time, I do not have a pressing need with what I do on my blog ... always looking :)

Hey Jeff, as someone who was originally on blogger, then switched to wordpress.com, I don't think there is a big difference. Wordpress has more of a "community" to it, but since blogger rolled out their new version (where you can tag, have drag and drop widgets, etc.) I don't see a whole lot of point to switching.

One drawback to wordpress.com is that you can't use javascript. There are a lot of cool things that require javascript if you want to put it in your sidebar.

I am actually about to transfer again to a self-hosted wordpress blog, which has a lot of flexibility since I can control 100% of the code. And since I am hosting it, I can use javascript if I want to. I would say, unless you are going to switch to a self-hosted blog, stay where you are.
