So, as is probably obvious if you’re reading this, I now have a WordPress account. Yes, I have finally jumped on the WP bandwagon. (Was there ever a WP bandwagon? I don’t know. Let’s assume there was.) Why, you ask? Oh, let me count the reasons. (No, seriously, let me. I love lists.)
- I haven’t updated my Blogger account in months, and I don’t really feel inspired to go back there and kick-start it. AGAIN. Especially because I know it will go dead again in a few months (or if I’m feeling spectacularly lazy, right after the kick-start post), and there’s only so many times you can resuscitate something before you just have to let it go.
- I’ve always been fascinated by the WordPress interface, and wanted to give it a whirl.
- Starting up a new blog when you have tons of other stuff you should be doing is always an irresistible prospect, isn’t it?
- Whoa, I always thought it was spelt ‘irresistable’. Mind = blown.
- WordPress endeared me to it by asking me to agree to its “fascinating terms and conditions”. Direct quote.
- Going back to the old posts on my other blog was making me cringe. Oh, the unnecessary ellipses! I figure now that I’m into my 20s, my style won’t change as drastically, so the most this post is going to get from me when I’m 30 is a slight wince.
- I’d rather get used to a whole new system than figure out what updates Blogger has made since I last used it back in my previous life.
- Dude, WordPress lets you “like” things! You know, Facebook style! Who needs well-written, insightful comments when you can register your pleasure with a single click of your mouse? JOY! (If Blogger also has this feature now, don’t tell me.) (Also, I just typed “let’s” instead of “lets”. I need to start blogging again!) (Okay, just spent another 10 minutes figuring out which one was correct, because I totally confused myself there. Sheesh!)
- Although it does occur to me that I myself do not benefit from this “liking” business unless every blogger I follow jumps ship as well. HMMMM. *plots*
- Because I don’t like ending my lists on odd numbers. (5 is an exception because it’s wholesome.)
So there. Now that I’ve justified my reasons for jumping ship to WordPress, I shall now embark on the arduous task of letting it gather cobwebs while I not-so-inconspicuously ignore it. Fair winds!
