Moved my site to Blogger

You may have noticed things have changed. My websites had been hosted on Godaddy for many years but last week I moved them to Blogger.

I started using GoDaddy prior to 2000 and was happy for many years, but for the past few years I've felt the performance has slowed.

My blog site grayharley.com was using the wordpress backend, and my other sites were running combination of HTML, PHP, and MySQL. I like php and mysql over plain html but as I said the performance on Godaddy had declined. I'm a Google fan, so I decieded to look into moving my blog from Wordpress to Blogger. It worked well, yes I had to do a bit of cleanup but I was happy enough that I decided to move dfb.net and all the townof sites as well.

One of the good things about moving eight sites in one week is I got a lot of experience with Blogger quickly. So far I'm very happy. I like the extra features in Blogger and I like the Google photos integration. I'm still looking for a better way to display my google Photo Albums and the Links Gadget does not include a open in new tab option but overall I'm quickly becoming a Blogger fan.
