Tap Tap Tap – Is this thing on?

And so, like several before me, I have moved my blog to WordPress.

Some of you may ask why.  I had a few reasons, the main one was spam.  I was tired of opening my blog up and finding hundreds of new spam comments and no easy way to keep them from being added.

Some of the other reasons were Shiny!  I love technology and gadgets and learning new stuff.  So learning WordPress seemed like a fun thing to do.  And all the widgets and just STUFF available to WordPress users was just too much to pass up.  (Example:  did you know there is a BlackBerry app that allows you to post to your blog from your BlackBerry?!).  Change is inevitable.  This is actually my third version of this blog.  I started out over on blogspot.com, then migrated to Blogsphere on Domino and now to WordPress.  Who knows where I’ll be in a few more years.

So here I am.  I did my best to clean up some hiccups, like tags and categories (still working on this, more on why later).  I am still working on images.  You’ll note recent images are working fine, but older ones are still in progress.  I could not have migrated without Curious Mitch’s awesome blog posts.  I could not have had my old blog without Declan’s awesome Blogsphere template.

Take a look around.  Let me know your thoughts…

    I have been trying to find the time to update my blog since before BLUG over to wordpress using Mitch’s stuff as reference. Congrats on getting it done … and hopefully I am not far behind.

    Thank you, Frank.

    John, I had a couple of snags, I’ll be blogging about in the next few days. May or may not help you out.
