As you can see, I’ve moved the blog to a new WordPress template and it’s own domain. What do you think?
I bought both askkalena.com and ask-kalena.com and even though the first one is the most obvious, I decided to use the latter as it’s easier to read as a URL. I made sure to park the other domain to this one so I get the traffic from people typing in the more obvious URL. I spent a long time searching the WordPress cellars for a template I liked and then I had to bribe the author to turn it from a 2 column into a 3 column, but I’m really happy with the result.
I thought it was going to be a nightmare moving from Blogger FTP hosted to WordPress but it turned out pretty simple in the end because I decided to keep my archives in place at the old domain and merely redirect the main blog page. If you ever want to scan the archives of the old blog, you’ll find links to them on the bottom left of the nav menu. Archives prior to January 07 are available from any of the old archive pages.
So I’ve been absolutely blown away by how feature-rich WordPress is and by all the incredible plug-ins designed for WP by clever developers. I can’t believe I waited this long before migrating from Blogger to WordPress.
I’d love to hear your feedback on the new blog design, so please leave your comments. If you’re new here, please subscribe using my shiny new red RSS button on the left. Make yourselves at home!
