I just abandoned Blogger for a private WordPress installation.
The reasons for this are many, but mainly I noticed that the blogger template I was using was broken when using certain links on the template. This along with the fact that blogger’s spelling-assistance hasn’t worked for months. It keeps switching language for me.
After testing the UI to work with blogs in WordPress I decided to give it a go.
I will be redirecting traffic that goes to the old rss and atom files to the new rss and atom files generated by WordPress.
