Switched Blog Software

Okay, so we’ve switched over to Movable Type as our blog software of choice. Please be patient as we get the template finalized and ready to go…should be completely ready by next week.

Why the switch? We were using Blogger before, and in spite of how easy it was to use, it had some problems. First, the comment spam on that system has run completely rampant. Second, I could never get things to look exactly the way I wanted them. Finally, I wanted an OWNED solution, not a hosted one.

So what did we lose in the transition? Well, I managed to import all the old entries. Unfortunately, I lost the comments, and I am credited with writing all of them. I didn’t. Some of them are Jillian’s. Going forward, everything should be all cool with author credits, it’s just the stuff we’ve written in the last 5 or 6 days. We also need to find workarounds for AudioBlogger, which was a cool feature. I am sure there are alternatives out there.

At any rate, things should go smoothly now. Software changes like this always take longer than I expect, but in the end we will have a more stable, beautiful, wonderful little weblog. Enjoy, and if you are a Movable Type expert, be sure to tell me what you think I should add to this site. 🙂
