I'm thinking of switching from blogger to wordpress. Has anyone made the switch? Have any words of wisdom or sites I should check out? Change scares me, but I want more freedom and flexibility. Thanks!

I just changed TheMomSalon.com from Blogger to Wordpress this weekend. Wordpress is simply a better platform than Blogger. It's a lot more flexible, is a lot easier to use, more attractive and allows for better organization. It's extremely easy to import your current posts and your comments. I encourage you to do it.
Did you do the switch yourself? Were you able to customize the design exactly as you wanted it?
I did the switch to Wordpress self-hosted myself with a little help with my web host. They have a really installation guide. Then I uploaded a theme that I like and that was pretty much it.
what web host do you use?
Thanks, ladies! Jennifer, looks great!

Elisa- what are you thinking these days? The quote I got from one guy was 775$ (ouch, seriously?!) and another was $95. May go with the lesser as I'v already spent way too long on it.
I'm still undecided. I won't switch unless I learn to set some stuff up on my own - I get bored easily and I don't want to be stuck with the same design/layout because I can't do it myself (and I can't afford to pay someone every time I feel like a change!). If I can find someone to tech me some basic things AND do the transfer for a reasonable price, I might just jump in with both feet and do it :-)
I'd totally recommend switching. WordPress is just better in so many ways. After the learning curve, you'll love it. But don't pay more than $100 for migration ($775?? That's CRAZY!). There are a lot of good blog designer (I'm one too!), that are reasonably priced and can take care of the techie stuff for you.
I have Wordpress on one of my sub-domains. The only thing is I don't know to play with the design like I can with Blogger. I'd love to get the hang of it someday, because IT IS ~a lot~ more organized than Blogger!
I prefer blogger bc of the gadgets -- I know wordpress has lots of plugins but I can't install them properly (ok - it is a user issue).
Installing plugins is a breeze with the latest version of WP!
I'm a Blogger/Google lover, so I'm Blogger all the way. Now-a-days, they have templates just as nice as Wordpress templates.

Mom Made That! uses a Blogger Template that is mistaken for Wordpress a lot!

Eventually, I would like to take the time to learn Wordpress, but for now I'm sticking with Blogger!
Cool -- I thought Mom Made That was on Wordpress. Fooled me! It's very good for a Blogger template.
