  1. Another wonderful tutorial Babanature!

    Congratulations on your new blog that you are making, which I’m sure is going to be as good as this one. I wonder though why you are making it on Bloggers, or perhaps trying one there too.

    You brought back good memories because I started both my blogs on Bloggers and later switched to WordPress. I think having a blog on Bloggers has it’s own advantages and charm too. I wish I knew you way back then, I would’ve used this post to change my comment section too. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  4. Good luck with the new blog Babanature.

    I don’t use Blogger anymore so of course this wouldn’t benefit me but I’m sure there are still plenty of people who use that free platform and would love to learn how to do this. Great tutorial.

    Have a splendid weekend and Happy Easter!

    • Hello Adrienne,
      Did you really host a blog with blogger blog? what really did aspire you to move to wordpress? I’d like to know 😉
      My new blog will consume serious amount of cpu usage and precess usage that’s why i am using blogger blog platform 😀 Hope you’ll have a planned weekend and the greatest Easter ever my friend…

      • Oh yeah Babanature, if WordPress was around back then I wasn’t aware of it. My first blog was with Blogger and I mostly did affiliate marketing so it wasn’t like the blog I have today.

        The reason I moved is because with free platforms you don’t actually own your content. If you’re building a business and here for the long haul you definitely do not want to rely on a free platform. Although a few things are changing with this you still don’t want to depend on another service having total control over your content.

        I can see why you would want to go that route and that’s totally your decision but if you were doing this as a business I would definitely reconsider. Google has the right to take your blog down at any given moment and there is nothing you can do about it. No one will have that control over me! 😉

        • You’re truly right… i have already known that i’ll not be in full control of the blog because it could be shutdown by google at any given time, but the best thing to do is to play to rule and you’ll reap the benefit 😀 Thanks for the reply Adrienne

  6. HI Babanature,

    My best of wishes for your new blog.I started my blog on bloggers as well,but gradually realized that WordPress is the best available platform so switched over to this. But the reason you quoted that it will be more of videos so I think you’ve made a great choice.

    Thanks for this great share.
