What makes you happy?

We bloggers are a strange type of animals. For some of us, it doesn't take much to put a smile on our faces. This morning, while at work, I opened up another window and took a look at my comments. Just because I got a few new comments made me giddy with delight. And when I read something really positive and encouraging, why, I actually started humming a tune!

I think it has to do with that world domination feeling that someone else (I can't remember who) mentioned the other day...

While I am on the topic of bloggers and blogging, let me thank everyone who has participated so far in throwing light on
my quest for an alternative to Blogger. I do like Blogger a lot and after all I have learned so much about blogging and html and what not just by starting to use Blogger and playing with the tools available. I also like it that it is so friendly, support is fantastic and there are so many other programs that work well with it.

However, I do get frustrated when during peak periods I cannot get onto it... unfortunately when my creative juices flow, I need to blog at that moment, or I would lose it! Unfortunately, currently my blogging ritual involves running Blogger, editing and saving as drafts, etc. Either I have to change the way I blog (use Word, etc..., which is not a bad idea) or I will have to change from Blogger.

At this moment, I have not found a compelling reason to stay. Except for the questions I have regarding the process of switching over, and whether I'd lose my posts and comments, and trackbacks, etc. I am willing to switch. If there is anyone with similar experiences in this, can you please enlighten me about the process of transferring your blog from one system to another, and the relative difficulties?
