I am not the most knowledgeable person on different platforms and stuff, but everyone keeps telling me that I simply have to use Wordpress as my blogging platform for my business. This is what I have found out about Wordpress in the very short time that I have been using it.
Wordpress is not as stable as Blogger. It does not have the simplicity of Blogger. I cannot find the way to post directly through my phone as a text message, LIKE Blogger. And I get five hundred million times the spam on Wordpress as I do with Blogger.
So far, I have posted a total of fifteen times on my Wordpress blog. I have posted 2,405 times on Blogger, counting this post. I have almost exceeded the number of spam comments on Wordpress in three weeks as I have received in five YEARS on Blogger.
Also, I am not posting heavily over there so I can slowly build traffic and figure out where that traffic originates. I have not dropped a single link anywhere and already I have received 600 hits with mainly some past project posts. I don't want to make the same mistakes that I have made with this blog that seems to be doing okay.
Here at MoM, we have a wonderful reader and commenter base of folks that we all know and love. I have done very little promotion and link building except in the early days. This blog's traffic has been completely organic for the most part and it is certainly not a regional blog. We got some folks from pretty much all over North America commenting here and we pretty much know each other pretty well.
That said, I do not want to take five years building my business site to 500 uniques a day. So, if you have a hankering, the folks that you know that might want to look at an architecture blog, send 'em to paulmitchelldesign.com/blog. There is a subscription sign up about half way down the sidebar. I really want to build an e-mail subscription base to build some contacts. Of course, there is also an RSS feed, too.
And gimme the site critique, too. Remember, I am a big boy and can take the heat. If you hate it, try saying something like this, "Holy shit, that site blows goats!" I value your opinion, you know?
Please take the time to comment.
