I have to admit, the new Blogger interface is cool but when you really try to use it you start hitting crap like:
- mapping real domains instead of blogspot subdomains goes through Google Apps (in some form or another) and my domain was somehow trapped in another guys Google Apps account… tough luck
- importing from my old WordPress blog would have taken ages and it needed manual fixes… a lot of them
So, seeing that this would cost me a shitload of time and most importantly, a part of my sanity… I just chose to move everything to WordPress.com. And a good choice it was!
20 minutes later I was already importing 5 years of content and another hour later the DNS records were already updating.
Total costs: 2 pomodoros and about 30$ (new domain + WordPress.com domain mapping – which, may I mention, is worth every penny) – how’s that for a deal?
3 more things:
- today was my third day with the new schedule (the early-bird schedule) and it’s actually worth it… although I am getting hit harder than I though in the evenings
- tomorrow I’ll be skipping the early bird schedule because…
- Happy New Year 2012!
