Some negative karma things floating around the blog these days…the continuing issues with Bloglines, issues with pinging Technorati, issues with uptime. It’s all got me a bit funky, which says much about how important the blog has become in my meager existence. (I need to get a life, I know.) And I’m wondering how much of it is the blogware I’m using. As much as I want to believe that Manila is in my future, both the company Website and the CEO’s blog have fallen silent. Not good.
So I’m considering an attempt at moving this site to Word Press. My host says it can be done and that I could still use the same RSS feed (which is crucial) but that I might lose the comments (which would really suck.) And there might be other disruptions while attempting to get to the other side. I’m so conflicted, but I’m thinking that I’m going to have to do this eventually, so better now than later.
Any advice, feedback, ideas?
And by the way, thanks to the many of you who commented back to my RSS plea (although you probably won’t be reading this in Bloglines anyway…frustrating.) A number of people even e-mailed me with reports, and it’s very much appreciated. That and the fact that I just sold 50 copies of my book to a bookstore are getting me through. (And of course the lucky fact that the rest of my life is incredibly good and exciting and crazed and happy. Perspective…right?)
