That was quick.
Couple of weeks ago I wrote about thinking to move my blog to WordPress. Since then, I’ve used WordPress1 in conjunction with my static blog, and published posts to both sites. This experiment helped me to reaffirm the pros and cons of using WordPress, especially the part about concentrating on writing rather than site administration. During those two weeks I posted more, and became comfortable working with, and in, WordPress.
When I realized that I started to publish first to my dummy WordPress blog, and then reluctantly to my static blog, I made the decision to switch. Yesterday I completed the migration.
Following is the checklist I’ve used to manage the migration. It helped me going through the process with no downtime, and no prodissues 🙂
