Goodbye Blogger…

…and hello WordPress.

Blogger is about to quit supporting ftp and wants to have all blog sites hosted at Blogger. That doesn’t work for me. So I started working on the conversion to WordPress about one month ago. None of the processes or tips I found online worked for me — it seems that my setup was different from what everybody has.

I had to write a conversion program to get the posts to look like they should because WP wanted to insert all sorts of extra line feeds. Then I found out just how complicated WP is. I sure learned a lot, and finally today took the plunge and redirected the old blog links to these new ones.

Now it’s done unless I find some other gotchas that I haven’t noticed. And all of this in spite of the news that blogging is dead.
