Blogger VS Word Press

Lately I have noticed a lot of bloggers going from Blogger to Word Press.....I am not that familiar with Word Press...can someone fill me in on the appeal of switching?   I like Blogger (so far) and have had few problems with it....

Happy Wednesday

We are taking a break from Lego Linky Party this week...more rain expected today 8(

Personally, I am not impressed with Wordpress - I did an experiment to check it out and I find Blogger much more user friendly. My motto is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" JMO of course! :)

i also prefer blogger. wordpress seems yucky to me.

the only benefit i see is that some posts can be hidden to some ppl like post 1 post to everyone then follow it by putting a post only 2 your family and they log in with a ID code to see that post. I would like that. Then, the posts come up in your email too instead of a dashboard but i think you can set blogger to do that not sure.

I started with Wordpress and found it very difficult. There are many great features that are not available with Blogger, but it was not worth the headaches. Blogger is much more user friendly especially if you don't want to mess with HTML code and CSS. (Terms I was unfamiliar with until I started blogging.)

WP bloggers love it, but personally I just don't get it. Great question.

Thanks for your input ladies...I had no intentions on switching, but was wondering why someone would....

I was wondering the same thing because I have seen posts where bloggers encouraged others to consider WordPress over Blogger. So I have been a bit confused by it all and making the switch from Blogger to WordPress seems a bit daunting and overwhelming to me! I will say I do NOT like that it takes FOREVER for Blogger to download my pics from my file into my blogger template. Sometimes it takes longer to download the pics for my post (but I post lots of pics) than it does to actually write my post! This is frustrating for me, but I live with it! :) Happy a Happy Holy Thursday!

I have used both and while some of the extra features are nice on WP I had to come back to blogger.

For me it boiled down to being able to tweak my html however I wanted WITHOUT having to pay to have access to it. I don't mind paying for a domain name but they additional money on top of that *yearly!* to be able to access your html/css coding. I also found that as a 'mom blogger' more mom's are on blogger than WP and are active more via GFC then email subscriptions.

I found a lot of people who are/did/want to swap over are doing so for page rankings, which WP does help with. But if being ranked #1 isn't what is important to you (aka...if you write good content and are more worried about regular followers and etc) then it's just not worth it.

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
