Goodbye Blogger – Hello WordPress!

We’ve moved to WordPress! What do you think of the new and improved Telling It Like It Is? Bright and vibrant colors, awesome graphics, big RSS Subscribe button for all to trip over (hint hint)! Wink With all the nonsense that’s been going on with Blogger lately, changing up the comments section on Blogger blogs and all sorts of other Google garbage, I became completely fed-up with Blogger.

Bye Bye Blogger – Hello WordPress!

I have to extend my most gracious thanks to Snoskred for implementing the switch. I happened upon a post on Snoskred’s blog, “About Templates – Moving To WordPress”. There Snoskred explains helping Lightning move to WordPress and the steps taken to get everything set up and running right, including choosing a template and tweaking the colors and graphics to make it very esthetically appealing.

As I continued to read the post I became more excited at the possibility of making the switch from Blogger to WordPress, and was astonished at the low fee Snoskred charges for doing the transfer! How does zip, zero, nada sound to you?! That’s right! Snoskred charges nothing to do all the work involved with making the switch, and only charges a hosting fee of just $5.00 a month? Just sixty dollars a year?! Are you kidding me?! I mean come on, who can beat that?! If you are at all considering switching to WordPress I highly recommend that you talk to Snoskred. While she doesn’t charge a fee for all the work she put in moving my blog to WordPress, she absolutely will get a very nice tip for all her hard work. Thank you so much Snoskred! Smile

I must also tip my hat to Courtney Tuttle for his awesome SEO WordPress themes, of which I now use the “Cutline 3-Column Split 1.1“. Great job Court! Snoskred tweaked a couple of things, added the header image and greenery, changed the RSS button, but the original template is fabulous all on its own.

So what do you think? Do you like it?

    Maurice, I am definitely loving it! It’s rather funny to me that as soon as I get set up on WordPress, suddenly I’m bombarded by people trying to sneak through the spam filters. hahahaha Not a chance! πŸ˜‰
