My blog is running on WordPress II

It’s been 2 and 1/2 week already that my blog is running on WordPress. It was a very hard decision, where I lost all friend connections that I had on previous Blogger blog.

How I’ve been enjoying using widget based template for my Blogger blog before,

and the good news is, WordPress is also supporting widget driven template. I’m just so glad that the template that I’m using previously offers widget capable template.

I tried making my WordPress blog to be having the same features that I had previously. The 2 features of blogger that I like is the Friend Connect widget that allow visitors to Follow our blog, and the Blog List widget that shows the latest updates from the blog that I follow. Google Friend Connect is available to be used on WordPress, and I managed to find a similar plug in that does the same thing as Blogger’s Blog List widget, but the problem is, these 2 widgets really slow down my blog’s loading page tremendously. Sometimes the page just got stuck and I have to refresh the page several time before the whole page is display. And with a heavy heart, I have to make this difficult decision again to deactivate these two widgets.

Now my blog has no connection with the fellow readers. Sigh!!
