I've been playing with the two blogs I run on Blogger and moved them to WordPress hosted on my own site.

Currently the two are 2mmwars.kings-sleep.me.uk and blog.kings-sleep.me.uk

I've done a quick merge to kings-sleep.info as a test.

Could you let me know your thoughts?

Key things for me to know what you think are:

1) Tags / categories – better or worse to find things with?
2) Lack of the 'Follower' option for Blogger folk!
3) Layout needs to be tweaked and duplicate posts removed.
4) Old links (see kings-sleep.info/?p=197 ) will point back to Blogger for now!
5) Do I classify everything for the 2mm folk with a specific category to simply things for them?

Currently this is an intellectual challenge for me as I want to learn PHP and WordPress as a self-growth task but thought I could use it for real as well…

For now though its just a play thing.

Looks ok to me.

Looks nice and clean; probably will read well visually for people viewing on mobile devices (these modern folks, always after the latest gadget….!) – but yes, you could do with a designation for 2mm – didn't even see it in your Tag cloud…

The followers gadget is probably more useful for the Blog owner him/herself, rather than for viewers, so maybe not a loss in itself….

The majority of the 2mm work was the EVFS project but you are correct – unless you know what I was working on you're a bit stuck!
