After many years of being a happy Typepad customer, I have decided to make the switch to Wordpress. Through my experience at work, I've seen first-hand that Wordpress is a more powerful blogging platform that especially has some real advantages when it comes to organic search. For now, themarioblog will be hosted on Wordpress.com but I might switch to the much more capable self-hosted version down the road. I will also be coming up with some fresh designs and fun widgets over the coming weeks. This wasn't an easy decision to make. In case you're considering to move from Typepad to Wordpress, here is one blog post that made the switch very easy. Painless Switch from Typepad to Wordpress Goodbye Typepad. You guys did an awesome job with my blog for the past four years. Thank you.
