Stand Up and Speak Out Has MOVED!

I apologize for the lack of posts recently. I have been working on moving Stand Up and Speak Out to my own website. The new website at www.standupandspeakoutblog.com.

This site change is mostly because I was unhappy with the Blogger platform. I originally chose to use Blogger because it seemed to the easiest, but I soon discovered that there were many things that I could not do in Blogger. For example, I was unable to change most of my Blogger profile. Other factors included Blogger’s server repeatedly going down, and the lack of tools that I wanted to use on my blog. For instance, I liked the idea of having categories, but Blogger doesn’t easily allow that. So, I began researching other blogging software, and stumbled across a free one called Wordpress. With Wordpress, the options are unlimited. It is Open Source, which means that people all over the world are working on it. I used Wordpress when I made the American Conservative Youth Union, and it worked fantastically.

For Blogger users who plan to expand their site, I would strongly recommend buying a domain name (websites are surprisingly cheap) and installing the Wordpress software. For those of you who are just starting a blog, or may not be interested in anything that isn’t free, you can get a hosted blog using Wordpress at Wordpress.com.

Anyways, please check out my new blog. I plan to keep my old blog as is for a few days, then I will close the comments and redirect anyone who enters to the corresponding page at my new blog.

Feedback is greatly appreciated!
