My own hosted wordpress

October 17, 2005 at 3:23 am | Posted in News Updates | 2 Comments

I’m switching over my own hosted blog for several reasons

 – Biggest reason: I have 100% control over it. Here’s you’re kind of limited with what you can do.

– I can’t change the design here.

– I can’t upload and share files.

– other small issues.

I’m still leaving this account open and might come back if it improves, but for now I’m off to my own blog: blogvp.com – come visit now.

I was playing around with keyword density and when I ran it on this site, the server returned the following code:

After 20 minutes of looking around and pressing buttons, I’m happy with how wordpress.com works. Here’s some comments:

  • I like the “Password Protect” feature, that might come in handy sometime in the future.
  • A little bit more control over the template would be great.
  • Haven’t seen any bugs yet.
  • Creating a more “open” system. What I mean is letting us see/add to places to ping and let it doodle around in the code.
  • Ability to add plugins?
  • I’ve been using wordpress.org blogs for a while now, so it’s really similar. But this is what I expected from a hosted package.
