I made a tough decision today. I decided to abandon SharePoint as a blogging tool, and I am switching to WordPress.
Why this move?
- the standard site template for blogs in SharePoint is rather limited, especially for the typical web 2.0 features (pingbacks, comments, tagging…)
- writing content is sometimes very painful. Ever tried embedding a Youtube video?
- there are some nice extensions (tag cloud, Enhanced blog Edition) but my hosting provider did not manage to install them properly
- SharePoint hosting costs me money 🙂
- I am using WordPress for our family blog and it is working great
- my friend Gert is giving great service for the php hosting.
