WordPress is great from so many points of view and it is better than Blogspot when it comes to SEO. Search engines are more fond of wordpress finds than blogspot ones. WordPress is very well structured and easy to use. I dare say even in these two aspects it’s better than Blogspot. So, you ask, why do you move Funky Box Studio on blogspot when wordpress sounds better? Because blogspot allows widgets that wordpress doesn’t!
It is important for an Etsy seller to make use of every resource available in order to promote his work. Etsy has a couple of cool widgets itself, but you can also find others on other sites linked to Etsy. Like http://www.craftcult.com for example. All these widgets can be inserted on blogspot, but not on wordpress. WordPress doesn’t allow html (with a few exceptions) and java widgets (and flash and other embeds). Guess what? The widgets we Etsy sellers need are exactly the ones wordpress won’t allow!
As a conclusion, i strongly recommend using blogspot if you’re an Etsy seller and you’re thinking of setting up a free blog. I had to learn it the hard way, but you don’t! Oh! This post is strictly referring to wordpress vs blogspot and no other blogging platforms. These are the ones i’m familiar with and can speak about.
So now that you know the whole story behind Funky Box Studio moving to blogspot, i’m happy to announce that we have it done and ready and working! Please check us out on www.funkyboxstudio.blogspot.com!
Funky Box Studio wishes you a colorful day!
