3 Reasons I Switched fromTypepad to Blogger

  1. The number one reason was cost. I don't blog on a regular basis so paying a monthly charge to keep my blog going was just silly. With blogger, I don't have to feel stressed out if I don't post on a regular basis because money isn't coming out of my pocket. Already, I feel less stress.
  2. Birds of a feather. The reason I went with typepad to begin with is that several people I admire were using typepad. It just made sense to flock with the birds you admire. Over time, I realized there were many more handmade and vintage folks using blogger and started thinking it might be a better fit for me.
  3. Ease of use. I find blogger much easier to navigate than typepad. It seems so much more intuitive and I was never happy with typepad's posting editor. I was always running in to little bugs, which made it very frustrating and time consuming {not what I want in a part-time hobby endeavor}.
I'm so happy to have Back Home Again {the blog} at it's new home. I had planned on making the change after the first of the year but what the heck {no time like the present}. Postings may be few and far in between until then but it doesn't matter {it's not costing me anything}. You may also notice that I have completely re-designed my look, going back to my rural Indiana roots. I loved my old look but it was time for a change and a reconnection to why I started all this in the first place!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!



  1. I think you would've enjoyed wordpress too - I have. It's free (unless you want to run ads) and seems like it has richer features than blogger.

  2. I know a lot of people that use wordpress but it just seamed like more than I needed. Your blog is lovely and I really love your work. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I have been using blogger for almost a year and it is amazing! I was considering joining typepad because of all the wonderful blogs and amazing designs and features they had but I wouldn't want to spend money for something i could just do for free somewhere else. Plus all my favorite blogs are on blogger anyway!
