I Have Arrived

Here I am at my spiffy new location!

I posted about the possibility of the move from my Blogger blog just recently, however I originally started looking at getting my own domain about six or seven months ago. I did reasearch on hosting options at that time, but I decided to postpone the decision so that I could deliberate.

My usual gaming bloggery will commence forthwith.

I have a few more administrative tasks to do before everything is configured exactly the way I want it, but these things will take place over time.

Things to do:

  • Install WordPress

 

  • Import old posts and comments from Blogger blog

 

 

 

  • Get Technorati tags plugin to work

 

 

  • Get BloglinesReader plugin to work (PHP skillz lacking, gave up; maybe I will revisit this later)

 

  • Categorise all old posts (time-consuming)

 

  • Update URLs of images in old posts (relatively time-consuming)

 

  • Update URLs in old posts which reference other posts (extremely time-consuming, unsure if I should bother)

 

  • Edit template to display date and time in my preferred order

 

  • Add links to sidebar

 

  • Add “Meta” section to sidebar

 

  • Add “Syndicate” section to sidebar

 

  • Add information to “About” page

 

  • Claim blog on Technorati

 

  • Tell LiveJournal to update syndication feed address

 

  • Update web site address information on all profiles, everywhere

 

  • …?

    Well done you. What a good feeling it must be!

    Congrats on the new blog! One suggestion from a fellow WordPress user is to change your permalinks to actually use the post names (helps for searching and stuff) – set it under Options->Permalinks.

    Interesting. Having a RSS feed for comments is nice – the Blogspot comment support is rather lacking.

    Thanks, Alice!

    Thanks, Tara!

    I’ll think about the permalink suggestion.
