I always had this blog to write, not to run a blog. I’ve written less and less over the last couple of years and part of this is down to the overhead of maintaining wordpress. My plan is to switch to a clean, hosted solution – and Tumblr is looking like what I want. I plan to migrate everything over ASAP, but ASAP is proving to be not quite as soon as I’d like.
The migration plan is looking like this:
- Setup blog.magpiebrain.com to point to my Tumblr blog
- Start posting there, not here
- Write a script to export my posts from here to Tumblr.
- Write a script to export my comments from here to Disqus.
- Setup permanent redirects from the old posts to the new home at Tumblr.
