I decided it’s kinda ridiculous to be blogging on LiveJournal when I have a perfectly good WordPress installed on my own domain, which I pay for every year. With every post on LJ, I neglected this site more, even though I thought I could use it as a pure photo blog beside the LJ. Using this blog has some other advantages too, since I control every aspect of it, I can customize the site much easier. And, with WordPress I can make pages for the more static content. As you can see above, some of that is functional, some not yet. The 101 list will be copied to the page of the same name and will be updated there (datestamped and all). I will post about accomplishing certain goals and stuff, but for big list overviews, go to the page.
So, with that said, I spent last night one-by-one copying my LJ posts and its comments to here (the importer didn’t work :/ ), inserting them at the right places so they look to be posted on the same dates as I actually posted them. I’ll be making a post on the LJ indicating I’ve moved back here, but I’ll most likely repost certain things back there as well. Notably, the resource posts I mentioned last month. Link collecting for these is coming along nicely, but it’ll be much easier to create these resources here. Here, I’m turning them into pages. Always at the top to be found, no looking around for it, and, with the save draft feature that WordPress has and LJ doesn’t, the creation of these pages will be easier.
The one thing I will miss from LiveJournal is the ability to have different posts have different user icons. I always thought that gives a certain colour to the page, as well as a different glimpse into the personality of the author.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Oh, and sorry to folks who have this site of mine in their feed readers and now got flooded with all the 60 or so posts I copied… Mark as read is your friend 😀
