"What About Your Readers?!"

The Butcher accused me of having sucked him into my crazy bloggy universe last night. He feels he’s come to care far too much about your well-being. But, I’m thinking of leaving Blogger, and when I mentioned it to him, the first thing out of his mouth was, “What about your readers?”

Y’all, in my heart, I’ve already left Blogger. In my heart, Tiny Cat Pants lives someplace where I can categorize things, where I can show who’s commented on what last, so that, even if I’ve moved on from a topic, y’all can keep talking about it and see that y’all are still talking about it. And, in my heart, there is a cat wearing tiny pants out where y’all can see him. And there’s red.

I’ve talked to both Sarcastro and Mephistophocles about Squarespace, which they use, and they both are happy with it. And I’ve been kicking some tires and poking around in the CSS and I’m thinking of switching.

Do y’all have any objections?

  1. Oh, yes, I forgot about that little annoyance, how you can’t ever let Sarcastro know the full extent of your snarky rage because you can’t make fucking italics.

    Hmm.

  2. Aunt B, I really love reading whatever you have to say. As long as you don’t stop writing, then I’ll be happy.

  3. Blog City gives a lot of bells and whistles to play with. Especially since you already own the .com of your name. They’re Scottish too, which is kind of neat and if you have problems, you get to talk to the real people while they work fixing the problem. Very nice.

  4. I don’t care. Make yourself happy and let me know where you land.

    I will say that Blogger can be enhanced with nicer “skins” (like the one used over at Writing as Joe or Bitch, PhD). There are people who, for beer money, will design you what you want if you’re tired of the basic look. Contact me off-list if you want some names and samples of work. But that probably holds true of other blogservers as well.

  5. youdotme.us will be glad to donate some design as well. It’s the least we can do.

  6. Tell me how it goes. I’m following you, B.
    I’ve been having issues with Blogger as well, looked into wordpress but not square space.
    Keep us updated.
