My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and
am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.

net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress

May I just say what a relief to discover a person that
actually understands what they are discussing online. You definitely realize how to bring a problem
to light and make it important. More people have to read this and understand this side of the story.
I was surprised that you're not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the
book in it or something. I think that you can
do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
A great read. I will certainly be back.
