New Host, New Thrills

I spent the better part of today tweaking a new WordPress install on my host, registered the domain and importing all the old Echoes and Mirrors stuff. The rest of the day was spent creating this glorious beast and watching season 5 of LOST (which included explaining everything to my roomie – guess I’m going to have to drag him through from the beginning).

All posting will cease on blogspot, so redirect your feeds here. I’m still working on a few things here, like the blogroll, but this is more or less the end result. I’m trying to coax more people into posting regularly.

The Hobson’s Choice site is being a pain in the ass because of the rotten bastards that snuck off with my old domain (the old software is redirecting to the old domain because it is fucking retarded). I have certainly learned my lesson about renewing domains. It’ll probably take most of tomorrow to sort it out, so I’m just gonna let it go until then.

A lot of the posts I imported here have links going to the old blogspot blog – I’m leaving that up for the moment. A lot of the blockquotes don’t seem to have transferred correctly and a lot of the images are hot-linking from blogspot. When I was googling about the best way to move my blogspot blog over to WordPress, everyone seemed concerned about pagerank, clickthroughs and shit and it was kind of frustrating. I do have Google AdSense ads on here (and elsewhere) but I’m not really concerned about it. I’m hoping one day I’ll earn enough from it to buy a case of beer (sitting at about $7 right now). This project was and never will be about making money. That’s what I stand on the corner for.

So, faithful readers, I’ll probably be pretty quiet until after the new year. There is a lot left to do before classes start again in less than two weeks.

Cheers!

I've got too many "If-and-when" projects myself; I know the feeling. Ah well, best of luck with it! Thanks for the blogroll link, btw! :)

Yeah, I've run WP sites before but hadn't got around to doing this out of being too busy. The holidays gave me enough time to actually do it. I'm kinda/sorta half-assedly working on my other site - it is more of a if-and-when project. The atheist page will probably end up being essay-ish bits from philosophy and some quotes; more of a nihilist philosophical page than anything.

Loving the new blog. Good call setting up WP up on your own domain - so much more control over your own content compared with other hosted blogs like blogger. Loving the new site too, can't wait for that atheist page to be working!
