I've been pondering a switch to WordPress for a couple of years. Being rather technologically challenged, I've been hesitant to make the move. But I decided while we're back in the U.S. for a few months I'd look into it and see if it's something I really want to do.
On the one hand, I've used blogger for six years and there's the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". On the other hand, I do get frustrated with what I can't do -- or can't do easily -- here, and I keep hearing how much more user-friendly WordPress is in that regard.
Lots of googling has ensued, checking out the tutorials for switching content over, oohing and aahing over the pretty templates on WordPress... and I'm still as indecisive as ever.
And then there's the whole name thing. Do I stick with "Just A Southern Girl", or is it time for a change?
Back in 2007 I was coming off a bad bout of bronchitis and had some time on my hands while recovering, so decided to check out this new blogging thing I'd heard about. I didn't put a lot of thought into it when I started, and chose "Just A Southern Girl" after brainstorming less than half an hour. I figure if I want to change my "name", the time to do it would be if I make the switch.
Although I do like being Just A Southern Girl...
Oh, to be afflicted with such a severe case of decision-making disorder! What's a southern girl to do?!
