Blogger vs. Word Press

Which is better: Blogger or Word Press?

When I began blogging a couple of years ago, I started using Blogger. It's easy to use, and I like some of its features -- like letting you know when a link is last updated. But its templates are pretty boring.

This week, I started playing around with Word Press. I like the templates better, and it has the ability to add different tabbed pages -- a feature Blogger lacks. It's also much easier to create a pretty cool header background/photo with Word Press.

On the downside, Word Press apparently only gives you 3 GB of space; need more and they charge you. Blogger's space is free and unlimited.

So I was toying around with moving my blog over to Word Press, but for now I think I'll keep my main blog on Blogger. I still want to play around with Word Press, though, so I'm going to move my Writer's Poke posts to their own Word Press blog --> http://www.writerspoke.wordpress.com/

What's your opinion? Is Word Press better or worse than Blogger? Are there any other blogging applications that are better than either Word Press or Blogger?

Summer Day Trip #1: Caledonia, Minnesota

The Wired Rooster Coffee Shoppe -- Caledonia, Minnesota


I've lived in Minnesota for over ten years, sure, but that doesn't mean I've actually seen much of the state. Like most people, I know what I know, and I go where I go. And that's the extent of it. But once I resigned myself to the fact that I wasn't going to make it to Alaska this summer, it occurred to me that I had plenty of sites to explore in the immediate region.

First stop: Caledonia, Minnesota. Where's that? It's a small town in the southeast corner of the state. Before I opened my Rand McNally Road Atlas, I had never heard of it, and before I punched the town name into Trip Advisor, I didn't know if there was anything there worth visiting.

Distance from home: About 75 miles.

Challenge #1: Leaving by 6:30 a.m.

Challenge #2: Taking my dog, Atticus.

Actually, Atticus is a good dog on a road trip, but the forecast indicated that it was going to get into the 90s. I wanted to leave early in the …

Summer Day Trip #3: Jackson, Minnesota

Some time ago in the spring, I found out that David Ellefson, bass player and co-founder of Megadeth, was rebranding the coffee shop in Jackson, Minnesota. Every so often I would tell Linda that I planned to drive over there to check it out, but the morning that I actually decided to drive over there to check it out, I think I surprised her. I’m not sure she thought I would ever do it.
“What else are you going to do over there?”
“Oh, that’s it. Just drive over there, order a cup of coffee, and drive home.”
I had checked out Jackson on Tripadvisor, and honestly, Jackson seemed like it didn’t have much going on. My mind map of southwestern Minnesota was mainly a blank. I knew that I-90 drove through, but I thought perhaps the interstate was a metaphor: Beware ye who enter here, lest ye be on your way to somewhere else.
When I told Tavi we were driving two hours to visit a coffee shop, the idea didn’t seem far-fetched to her. She only had one question, “Do they serve hot cocoa?” I promised …
