Welcome to the WordPress Version of

Well, I went ahead and did it. The process of migrating from Blogger to WordPress was actually pretty simple, so I made the jump. All old posts and comments should be available.

The biggest change is the new address for the site feed:

PLEASE UPDATE YOUR AGGREGATORS to point to the new feed! I hated to have to make that change, but now that it’s done, I don’t anticpate having to do it ever again, because Feedburner lets me make changes like this transparently.

So, what do you think of the new digs? Post a comment, or drop me a line to let me know what you think. 🙂

  1. Looking good Josh, looking very good. I for one much prefer now having to enter my Blogger ID and word verification every time i leave a comment.

    The actual site looks much slicker. Though is the old banner coming back or is the current one staying?

  2. Thanks, Nathan. I wasn’t real happy with the word verification, either, but on Blogger, you have to do it, or you’re bombarded by comment spam. We’ll see how WordPress’s anti-spam features work out.

    Not sure what I’m going to do about the old banner. I liked it, but it doesn’t really fit in the new design. Maybe another design contest? 🙂

  3. Ohhh, everyone loves a contest. Also, now your on your latest in a line of iPods, come add yourself to my Frappr! Map of Mac/iPod users…

  4. Josh,

    I’ve moved over to WordPress as well and have a new blog all together. Couldn’t figure out the Blogger import thing to save my life. Were you able to make it work?


  5. Paul-

    I was able to do the migration of all my old posts and comments. I followed the tutorial here:

    Make sure to get Andy Skelton’s Modified tool, and follow the steps there. It’s non-destructive – you basically tell Blogger to publish all of your site in a specific format (dates, change your template, etc.), then publish it, and use the import tool page to suck them all in to your new WordPress database. Went pretty smoothly for me.

    Give it a shot, if you want, and let me know if you have any questions. I’m no expert, but I’d be glad to help.
