Blogger or Word Press?

Well gang, I've been running this blog on Blogger now for over a year now and it's served me well. The amount of hits I am getting to this blog is steadily growing so I have been thinking about moving the blog over to Word Press, hosted on my own server.

I was also going to take the opportunity to re-brand the blog as 'Jingi Blog' doesn't really sound all that cool to me. So I started playing around, registered a domain name (not going to say what it is yet), installed MYSQL and Word Press on the server and away I went.

I've so far spent around 12 hours solid on the new 'blog' and have absolutely nothing to show for it. I can't find any decent themes, customisation is a nightmare (it's very simple on Blogger) and doing the simplest thing like editing the home page is simply escaping me.

You see, I have 2 other 'sites', a wiki which I maintain and also my personal site. I was hoping to incorporate the whole lot under one nice tidy little package but I just can't for the life of me work out how to do it all.

What do you guys think? Have you used Word Press? Do you prefer one or the other? Please leave your thoughts in the comment field, I'd really love to hear them. :)
