The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This week’s prompt was submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews
What platform do you use for your blog?
I use WordPress. When I originally started blogging in (I think) 2011 I used blogger and back then I was mainly posting beauty related content, a lot of nail varnish photos and lipstick swatches – those posts have since been deleted which I kind of regret now as I wish I could look back on them in a bit of a cringy way!
I moved to WordPress in around 2016 when I started writing more about my reading. This prompt has actually reminded me to go and check if the blogger blog is still active and it is so if you want to see my old orange(!) blog its here.
Overall I think WordPress has a much nicer user interface in terms of planning, scheduling etc and it was really simple to migrate all my 2014 onwards posts to WordPress so I would recommend it for anyone starting a new blog or wanting to move theirs.
