I don’t really know why I am suddenly quoting The Clash, but I thought it was sort of appropriate.
You see, I am thinking about shifting blog platforms. It is not that I don’t like Typepad, I do … it has been great. But I have a lot of other sites, sideline projects and web hosting setups that I need to consolidate. And rather than have them all spread out … and costing small but not insubstantial amounts, I am thinking that I should bring them all together in one place (yes, the wonders of virtual hosts and server technology will allow me to do so). At the moment I am thinking of MoveableType … but I have had a lot of experience with WordPress as well and know it does a great job.
I am sure that many of you have been down this path before me … so what are the risks? What are the problems? What have you learned in this sort of process and would you do it again?
And, in case you can’t get that song out of your head, I have posted a live version over here.
