Problems with Blogger

October 30, 2006

Topics: Blogging.

As you may know, Blogger has been plagued by problems recently: service outages have been, in my experience, as regular if not MORE than actual access to the service.

I’ve known for ages that I really need to get my butt in gear and convert to something else (WordPress, most likely, since that’s what I have the most experience with.). Well, with these problems I’ve decided that it’s really just necessary: I can’t effectively maintain this blog with these kinds of services problems. Whether Blogger gets their issues dealt with or not is irrelevant. I’ve intended to do this for a while, I need to do it now.

So, instead of blogging, I’m probably going to be taking my hypothetical blogging time to convert over to WordPress, instead. You will undoubtedly find broken URLs: I’m going to be prepping my .htaccess file to prepare for this, but let’s face it: I’m going to miss things. This is what I’d call a "rush job" — something I’m doing because it’s been thrown in my face, not because I’ve got the time to take care of it.

So this is the last post you’ll be seeing in Blogger. Any luck, and everything will be back to normal within the week.
