Blogging Platforms


Last Saturday, we were discussing about blogging platforms, primarily Blogger and WordPress. Most have pointed out that WordPress have many benefits, aside from the fact that your blog gets indexed faster by search engines; it also has a lot of plugins that makes a blogger’s life easier. Then, we also pointed out that most blogs that uses WordPress as a blogging platform gets page relevance faster and because of this many spammers comment more on them than Blogger hosted blogs.

Speaking of spammers, most WordPress users were really annoyed especially those that commented about gämbling and adult sites. Spammers just don’t leave a single link but a series of unrelated links and useless comments. As for my situation, I was very glad that I have installed “WP Ban” plugin. I just add the IP address of the spammer at the plugin options and he/she could not access my blog. If he/she couldn’t view my blog, therefore he/she couldn’t leave me a spam comment. Cool right?

Anyway, I am thankful that I migrated to my own self-hosted WordPress blogging platform. I have seen great and tangible benefits like the restoration of my wonderful blog blessing!

    I’m hands down to WordPress. It’s easy to learn and there are quite a lot of things that we can do with blogs running on WordPress. There seem to be a plugin for almost anyting you want with your wordpress blog.
