Blogging on SharePoint vs WordPress part 3

This blog has been around the block a few times. I started this blog on a hosted WordPress install at servage.net. Then, when I decided to close my account with those guys, I thought “why not a local SharePoint Foundation, hosted in my garage”? It sounded like a good idea. That only held up for a few months. Too much adjusting, tweaking and not enough writing and just to much procrastination. Conclusion: I just don’t have that amount of spare time to tinker with design details and features and while SharePoint is a great platform, it’s not for serious blogging.

Blogging on SharePoint vs WordPress part 2

I tried. I really tried to make good use of SharePoint as my new blogging platform. after 2 months, it still doesn’t feel right.

That and my wish for a more green profile on my hosting ad thus, not using my own server but a cloud service won.

Blogging on SharePoint vs WordPress part 1

For the first time in my 5-6 years of blogging, I’m not using WordPress. I’ve been a WordPress fan since ver. 1.2 and I never used any other platform. The year 2012 is the year, where I try something else. Now I’m consolidation my 3 running blogs (in danish) to one blog (in english). and I’m trying to do do end up on a SharePoint platform. SharePoint is known for a great many things, but I don’t think tat blogging has ever been one of them. Truthfully, I’m hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

I’m a SharePoint Specialist and have lots of love for the platform. I can bend it most ways I wish. But when it comes to blogging, Microsoft haven’t really paid attention the last few years. When it comes to blogging, SharePoint is very simple. but when it comes to publishing SharePoint can be very complex.
