WordPress or Blogger

I’m liking the look and feel of WordPress a bit better. Bummer that it does not support blogging by email as that would be a natural for me. I can blog from Flickr and do like the “press this” ability. That is something that Drupal had but went away. Just discovered that the hyperlink tool allows setting the target. I like that.

I see the customizable summary feature also.

I like the WP use of tags + categories.

I like the Blogger email capability which allows also sending a photo.

The WP interface in both posting and the dashboard is better. More info, but still accessible.

Blogger opens a new window too often. Possibly the way I have Firefox set.

Again toying with the Blogger possibility (1/10/09) due to the mobile posting features … dang I wish WP had posting by email that would include a photo like Blogger does. But there is just more in the way of tools in WP, more themes but few widgets/gadjets, but far far better editing tools.

Also discovered there is no Blogger gadget to do a tag cloud. That’s pretty key in my book.

And, as much as anything, I really like this fadtastic theme that gives just the titles of older posts. So, it’s still WP for me.
