    what do you think of using blogger as a platform? should I move to self-hosted wordpress ASAP?

    it’s not a huge deal with losing subscribers… I use my own domain, subscriptions are through feedburner, etc. So I’m not gonna be totally dead if I switch (except for SEO, but I only have about 40 posts so far)

    I guess if I DO need to switch I should do it sooner rather than later.

    Maybe I could use analytics to set up 301 redirects for my old pages?

    This is definitely a great list of WP tips for me, as I am already going crazy with my two-week old blog. My other blogs are courtesy of blogspot and I feel at ease with them.

    But have to have dirt my hand if I want to dig some gold, right?

    Thanks for sharing this. I owe you one.

    Always good to know this stuff… No mention of choosing a permalink style though. I thought it would be one of the first things to change when setting up wordpress…Maybe it’s not an issue anymore.
