After 4 years as a committed member of vox, that blogging platform is going the way of the dogs. So we’ve pulled up stakes and moved our blog to WordPress. You’ll find us at ourflophouse.wordpress.com.
There’s good news in this change, as well as a few negatives:
- I use WordPress to manage my work website, so I’m already pretty familiar with the interface – although there’s still plenty to learn.
- WordPress made it very easy to import all our old blog posts from vox – although all the photos are now larger and all the video disappeared.
- WordPress makes it possible for anyone – even people without accounts – to post comments on your blog, but it’s also more prone to spam.
- WordPress makes it easy to edit stuff in HTML – which can be a big help when things aren’t showing up right.
I’m gonna postpone the blogger challenge for a few days while I sort out some of the behind-the-scenes stuff on this blog, but I’ll be back at it again pretty soon.
