I mean, sometimes moving can be cool. A new house, new apartment, new car, new spouse: all examples of movement. But this is a different type of moving. I have to move my blog, and it’s causing me all kinds of anxiety. I’ve been with blogger for nearly four years (the first post hit the web in August 2006), and I’ve either used their site to host my blog or have used the Blogger FTP service to post my stuff to my own web site (now nearly two years old). So I haven’t really had to do too much differently at all.
But now Blogger is doing away with FTP services and so I won’t be able to use the service to populate my website. I could use the migration tool provided by Blogger that will move my posts to a new custom domain URL, a process that has its limitations, or I could jump ship and do what I figured I would do eventually anyway: try WordPress.
So I’m embarking on installing WordPress on this site and moving all Sharper Thesis over to the new platform. Since Blogger is making me either change or leave by May 1st, I have little time. If the blog is down for awhile, I apologize now. I’ll figure it out, but it may take time.
Change is scary, but usually good. Let’s hope.
