Unbound Spiral: Dina is on Wordpress

October 8, 2007 08:44 PM

My blog buddy Dina has used a Radio Blog from the very beginning. Sometime after setting her up I went on to MT and we've run projects there over the years. Still, it is hard to change a blog platform once you are wedded to it. In that way it is a little like a bank account... it seems like a lot of hassle to change and then finally you have to bite the bullet. I personally think this is even worse with hosted services which will continue to take your money so you can keep your blog and history there.

So Dina has a new blog and I will shortly move mine too; again to Wordpress; using many of the plug-ins that we have been experimenting with on Mosoci.

I will blog separately on the plug-ins, what we've learned works, what new things we can do. I know we are taking our use of these tools to a new level.  Separately, when you have blogged for four years at the same URL; have feeds etc. you have some trepidation about moving to a new location. Despite all the "you can import and export" your content often it isn't easy to retain your URL's and thus a change breaks links. One way we have dealt with this is to create Google custom search engines which merge the search for new and old content.
