As a developer I feel the need to keep a blog with all the little tips, tricks, hints, and notes that I gather as I do my development work. I’ve been doing this for a few years on the blogger platform and enjoyed my time there. For a while now I’ve felt the need to move away from Blogger. I grew less and less satisfied with their tools and the lack of control I felt I had over my blog.
Once the decision was made I started trying to find a new home for it. I looked around and test drove many different platforms. Predictably I settled on WordPress. The main reason was simple. All the other platforms I looked at had great tools for converting your WordPress site to them. Their Blogger tools were not as well developed. I decided that no matter where I eventually end up converting my old posts to WordPress would probably be a stop on that journey.
So here I am. Now to finish converting the 50+ posts over. The text was easy but those crazy code snippets are more complicated. 🙂
