I've been using blogger for a number of years but the templates are limited so I'm thinking of making the switch to wordpress

When you guys say you use Wordpress, do you use the Wordpress.com or Wordpress.org platforms?

I have used the .com platform for a while but the .org seemed a bit more challenging. Anyone use this and prefer it over .com, and why?

@SarahEMcCormick

I use Wordpress.org. It is really very simple to use. I have used Wordpress.com before, but you are limited on what you can customize and do. The only problem with a .org wordpress site is you have to pay for your domain. If you don't have the money to pay for a domain then a .com site is fine. Even if you do decide to go with .org though it is really very simple to setup and maintain, just as easy as a .com site, I think.

A lot of bloggers (and mommies) use WordPress.com or even other web builders and stores such as Shopify, Wix, or SquareSpace.

If you're looking for a lot more flexibility and being able to customize your site like many mommies here you'll definitely want to consider a self-hosted solution of whatever content management system you hope to use. If you're considering WordPress remember that WordPress.com is completely separate of WordPress.org.

WordPress.com is a hosted version. You may see sites such as domain.wordpress.com and that's why. A self-hosted version is when you take the software, in this case WordPress, and host it on a server with your own domain name. This way, your website URL would be domain.com rather than domain.wordpress.com.

I see that this was posted a long time ago. If you or anyone reading this post needs help advice on how to get started I'm completely open and don't mind being contacted or messaged!

I personally use the self hosted wordpress. I have used blogger in the past but wordpress is much better to me.

I've always used blogger except for my brief stint on wordpress. As much as I liked it, I'm more familiar with blogger so until I'm ready for my own domain, I'll stay with that.

Hi moms! I'm looking for ladies to participate in an interview about improving websites.

I'm assisting a small tech company develop a website evaluation service, and we are particularly interested in learning about the experiences mommy bloggers have getting their sites up and running.

If anyone is interested in answering a few questions and giving some feedback on a sample report, please let me know!

I'm still learning as I go as well, but I have been using WordPress and it is very simple. Things I have had questions on I have asked the support team and receive answers in a timely fashion or I can live chat with someone for help during business hours. I have to say  I am very pleased with them!
