Nature, to Be Commanded, Must Be Obeyed

Hello Tinkerer, Goodbye WordPress

It was time for a change. I hosted my blog using WordPress for 5 years and I am glad I did. WordPress is still a great open source project and great blog engine. But it was time for a change and I wanted something low-level. Something I can tinker with.

I took the XML dump of my blog and converted the entries to individual pages using a script I wrote. Even though my script took care of most of the concerns, such as generating mappings from the old URLs to the new URLs, I had to go through each post and make sure it look right. I threw away the not-so-popular posts to save time.

Unfortunately I couldnt’t figure out how to convert the comments. I was hoping to retain them as a list under a Comments heading but it looked horrible. If you are a commenter I ask your forgiveness.

In the process my RSS URL is also changed. It is now http://blog.muhuk.com/rss.xml.

Thanks for reading my blog for 5 years. I hope to see you again.

If you have any questions, suggestions or corrections feel free to drop me a line.
