Adoption Blogs? — The Bump

Adoption Blogs?

I'm thinking about starting one and documenting our journey.

1st decision: Blogspot or Wordpress?  Any recomendations? 

Anyone have blogs they don't mind sharing?

Re: Adoption Blogs?

  • I prefer Blogspot. Plus they've just added a bunch of new templates that I find pretty nice. My blog link is in my siggy. It's not all adoption based but it's definitely a nice outlet to write when I don't feel like talking.

  • I prefer blogspot, it's very user friendly.  My photoblog is in my siggy.  I'm enjoying my friend's adoption blog.  They adopted several years ago and it's an open adoption.  The birth mother and my friend who adopted are writing the adoption story of their daughter from each of their perspectives.

    I also use Blogspot.  I think it's very easy to navigate.  My link is in my signature but it's pretty new so there isn't much on there.  Yet. :)

  • I use Blogspot -  I really like it and it's easy to use. 
  • I use and love certain features of it but I keep hearing about certain features I wish we had that Blogspot has. I would go with Blogspot if I had to do over again...I've even thought about switching it over.
