For those of you that have been long time readers of my blog you may know that I have tried pretty much every cms/blogging solution out there. I have tried Joomla, Drupal, older versions of WordPress, Squarespace, Tumblr, Posterous, and many many others.
So why come back to WordPress? I came back to wordpress because I think it is coming into its own. To put it simply the backend is there to support my needs without requiring 50 plugins to make it do what I want it to do.
My previous blogging tool was Posterous, and while they were pretty good, I just didn’t feel like it was doing everything I wanted to do in the way I wanted to do it. The transition between Posterous and WordPress was easy with the import from Posterous plugin. I was even able to change my tags from Posterous into WordPress categories using another plugin.
I still have to go through the posts and clean up any transition errors and I may move again in the future if something better comes along, but overall I am happy with my move to back to WordPress
