A few years ago I started my blog on Blogger. It was a free program and at that time I didn’t really have ambitions to really grow further with my blog. After a few months, however, I noticed that I already missed a number of things and I also received a lot of visitors and a lot of attention from different companies. Then I decided to improve my blog and I got the question in my head: Why WordPress? I will tell you about these reasons in this blog!
My design was one of the reasons why I switched to WordPress. With Blogger I was very limited in my design and I wanted to do things with my design that were simply not possible with Blogger. For example, you had to design a lot on your own with HTML and it was just way too much work. WP also gives you the possibility to use various free and paid themes and this was also one of the reasons why I decided to switch from Blogger to WordPress.
WordPress is easy!
I think WordPress is so much easier than Blogger. With blogger, you need to design a lot yourself, while with WordPress you can install a theme with only one click.

It saves time
This actually comes back a bit in the previous heading, but WP really saves you a lot of time. WordPress is so easy and there are just so many different plugins and themes that you can download to make it even easier for yourself .. Recommended!
Why WordPress > Plugins
Oh, how I love my plugins. Of course, you are not supposed to download an awful lot of plugins, because that simply makes your website very slow. Still, the WordPress plugins are really useful and I use a number of them.
