Ever since I started blogging on this site 11 years and 1 month ago, I have been using MovableType as the Content Management System. But it seems that as my blogging decreased, so did the MovableType community and the MT development team. I have been thinking about moving everything over to the more active Word Press for a long time, but 11 years of posting is a lot of data to move over.
As I have started blogging again the last month or so, I could see my MT installation starting to break. I tried and failed to get comments working again. (Working again, without mountains of spam, that is.) And uploading pictures and other files is a hassle. And then tonight I tried to upload my latest post and it just would not save. I don’t have time to figure out what is wrong, so I went with the one-click Word Press installation and here we are.
I imagine things will slowly change over time here, as I figure out this new system and figure out how it works. In the meantime, I am not going to touch my old posts at all. Eventually, I will bring them over into one database, but for now, if you want to see old posts, you can go to the old site at sgtowns.com/index-mt.html. And if you follow me on an RSS reader, you might have to update your feed to the new WordPress style feed at http://sgtowns.com/feed/. (Sorry for any inconvenience there!)
So… welcome to the new but not yet completely improved SGTowns.com. And now that comments are working, feel free to say hi sometime!
And since I am the first here, I might as well try to leave a comment. Anyone else out there listening? 🙂
