oh hey WordPress

Yeah I switched to WordPress, after being a (sometimes) proud Blosxom (specifically Blosxom.PHP) user for half a year.  It wasn’t an easy decision, especially as it required porting all my posts and comments, mostly manually, to WordPress, but after using it for just a few days I can tell it will be worth it.

Now there’s nothing wrong with Blosxom (well…), nor with other minimal blogware, but I gradually grew weary of the quirks (for example, it took me a weekend to debug the commenting functionality) and I began to feel like it was taking away from my writing.

What does this mean for you?

  • I’ve likely lost a lot of indie cred in your books.
  • If you subscribe, you’ll want to update your feed to this.
  • Outside links to individual blog posts won’t work. I can hopefully fix or redirect these eventually, but for now we’re all screwed.

On the bright side, you’re here, which means something’s working.

  2. If you want to attempt to redirect your old posts’ links - perhaps this WordPress plugin can help?

  3. Jeanne, yes!- that was the ticket. Thanks. Most external links should now be properly redirected, and I’ll get to the rest later.
