As I explained in my post in the previous version of this blog, I decided it was about time to move it to a new host. But that wasn’t the only change. The other thing I changed was the software I am using for blogging.
“Wait, what?!?” I hear someone asking. Well, to make a long story short: Instead of using common sense, use WordPress, do a simple export/import dance and then call it a day, I decided to instead do things in a slightly more complicated way. I decided to use Drupal. There are a couple of reasons for that. Without going into too much details, the reasons are that I just like Drupal and that I wanted to learn more on how to use it.
The first part is pretty subjective, everybody likes different things so no further need to explain it. As for the second part there is only so much one can learn with an offline site in their own machine. Eventually it is just necessary to go online to learn more about this kind of software. And I can’t think of anything more simple than a blog to start learning. Plus if something goes horribly wrong (*knocks on wood*) then I should be the only one losing any hair over it.
Now, I tried to match every feature WordPress.com offered but if there is anything that you feel is missing or would like to see added, this is a good time to say it. Just make a comment on this post or use the contact link up there. I am disabling the update notifications via e-mail for now though, just to make sure things won’t blow up, obliging me to switch to another software… like WordPress. I apologize for the incovenience and in the mean time, I suggest people use the RSS option as an alternative.
Speaking of broken things, if anything isn’t working (*knocks on wood again*), please let me know in the comments below, via the contact form or by sending a message via twitter to Rakuno_SoI. I tried to make sure everything is working properly but there is always something one can miss.
Oh, some of the ancient content may look funky right now. I will get back to fix them eventually. Same for the new content, I will eventually get back to fix the typos and cluncky paragraphs. But for now I just want to go back to ol’regular blogging 🙂
