There was a time in the blogosphere (Blog/ging world? Blogging community? I feel the term I just used is ancient and outdated!) that many bloggers felt torn about making that decision whether they should stay in their current blogging platform or to go big and choose another platform that may serve their blogging purposes better and suitable for long-term use. I’d like to call the latter part of the last sentence “making the blog future-proof“.
Future-proof: Capable of adapting or conforming to standards not yet known; customizable.
(Definition from Urbandictionary.com)
I mentioned the keyword long term earlier and I want to clarify that this is not to say that whatever blogging platform you’re using right now for your blog, isn’t suitable for long time use.. although(!) it probably has its own advantages and disadvantages, like every other product does.
That’s what I will try to get into for today. Today I’ll be showing you, from my experience, what are good blogging platforms to consider when deciding to blog; should you consider changing blogging platforms; and why have I stuck with a few reliable ones all these years.
