It won’t take a frequent reader of my blog to realize that something looks very different, and it hopefully won’t look this way for long. Consider this a transitional appearance…basically, imagine that I went shopping for new clothes and am lounging around in a plain smock in between trying on some appealing looking outfits.
Those of you who use Blogger are likely aware that they no longer allow you to host a blog on your own domain. Sure you can create a custom blog with a slightly different URL if you are willing to break all existing links to your previous posts. But even though I dont intentionally “dog ear” my books, I like the idea of permanent links and permanent bookmarks on the web. I want all of my old content to stay as is.
So I have installed WordPress into my existing domain. All of the old content is still there, and after I spend some time fiddling with templates and widgets, I will also make sure to rebuild links to the old stuff.
For now, the fastest way to get to my previous content is through my April 2010 archives.
