I’ve toyed with the idea of switching blogging platforms before but I’ve always thought it’d be too hard. I’m thinking maybe I was right.
For the last week or so I’ve spent a lot of time trying to get my blog moved from Blogger to WordPress. There are some great import / export applications to help the job along but there’s still a lot of work to be done. I think I’m finally there.
With over two thousand posts from over four years of blogging, importing posts was hard enough, but then came the job of pulling in over five and a half thousand comments from Haloscan. Not an easy thing to do and it would have been impossible if it wasn’t for the help of Justin who went well and truly above the call of duty in ensuring that everyone’s comments travelled to the new blog. I suggest that Justin should be knighted immediately.
If you read The Journey through an RSS feed you probably won’t really notice the change but I’m hoping that those who click through to the site will find that it not only looks cleaner but is faster to load.
Helping me right through the process has been Snoskred who is not only hosting the blog at a very reasonable price but has worked tirelessly to see the switch completed. She is a brilliant person to have on your side.
So, what do you think? I’d love to get your opinion on the new look blog. There may be more changes as I continue to tweak but I’d really appreciate your thoughts.
