Whew!

blogging, technology

I just finished hand-importing all my old entries from my Salon / Radio blog, may it rest in peace. For those who care why I switched, read on…

I still do highly recommend the Salon / Radio route for anyone who’d like to get a blog up and running pretty easily with minimal fuss and expense. With their setup, you get a 30-day free trial with truly point-and-click software that enables you to compose your blog as easily as you’d write a Word document, and have it automagically appear on your public blog with just a click or two.

So why have I defected to MovableType (the software that runs this blog)? Well, mainly because it is much more powerful and flexible for geeks like me 🙂

Anyway, as you can tell, I still have a lot of work to do on this blog… adding links, and — if I’m really ambitious — adding in the dozens and dozens of blog entries I’ve posted on my SmileZone Conversation Corner journal. Now THAT will take some major time! Ack!

In the meantime, please feel free to bluntly let me know what you like and don’t like about this new blog and blog format. Everything from my writing style to content to the presentation is fair game. You can comment below, or contact me privately.

And hey, thanks for reading!

    Hi, yeah, if you can do most of the MT stuff yourself than I understand why you would want to move.  My only beef with reading MT blogs is that most of them are difficult for me to read, but of course, this is also an Internet Explorer problem—View, Text Size, whatever doesn’t change the font size—I guess I could use the Opera browser—view page at 500%, etc.—but then there are things that don’t work with the Opera browser as well. 

    Sorry for babbling, I hope Mozilla ends up being better than the competition, but this is probably a dream.  I tried it a month ago and it too has a ways to go.

    Aaron, I totally hear you about the small (and IE-unchangeable) font size 🙁  It’s great from a designers-standpoint (more fits on a page!) but yes, it can be a bit hard to read.  I’m going to explore options for making it user-configurable or at least a little bigger overall.

    I appreciate the feedback!

    Make sure to shop around for used suvs as well as new suvs before choosing.

What do you think?
