‘Upgrading’ to WordPress

I am currently in the process of upgrading my website. All over. From the portfolio, to the tumble-log-like blog. What prompted this most recent redesign? Well, on top of never being happy with one’s own work, I was particularly unhappy with the blandness of the previous design, plus…Wordpress.

I discovered the joys of using WordPress. I always felt like I had to hack through MovableType’s templating system, but with this I could actually build something using php. That’s something I can appreciate a great deal.

At this moment, however, I am manually transferring all of the links, quotes, and entries that I can. It is a LONG process. And of course one that is next to impossible to accomplish. I cannot simply import all of my old entries, although that seems to be what I need to do, because when I did so, it was not too successful. I may give it a try again, but it’s going to take some time to get it done right. Time that I have I suppose.

Oh well.
