I really don’t like making tweaks to my blog itself, since I’d much rather be writing my blog posts themselves, or the software I talk about in my blog. So any time I spend working on just the blog software’s configuration feels like wasted time. But frankly, while I liked the simplicity of Blogger for all my previous entries, it was just getting on my nerves.
I didn’t like the editor interface, I didn’t like how difficult it was to tweak the HTML and theme settings, and frankly it was just too difficult to update. And since I run my own server and manage my own websites on it, I figured to hell with it. I’ve started migrating to WordPress (it saddens me that I’m not using Perl for my blog, but alas, I have no time to tweak anything).
So this is the first post to go onto the new blog. No one will see it until I switch my domain over, but for the time being this is it. I’ll set up some redirect rules later once I want to make things official. I’m also not done changing themes or plugin settings, so I’m not happy with what I have now, but it’ll improve bit by bit over time.
