Moving from Radio to Movable Type

I’ve seen some discussion on the issues related to changing blog infrastructure from one system to another. In my case, I moved from Radio to Movable Type.

My experience is that is was pretty easy to move the data (no data lock in) but the problem was the urls. Even if you take steps to make sure that the root url doesn’t change, the individual post and archive urls will probably change which means that anyone linked to your blog before will stay linked to your old blog and so you will experience a disruption in your traffic.

BlogBridge – coming along!

It’s been quiet but we’ve been busy. We are getting ready to put up a major new revision of BlogBridge with goodies such as drag and drop of Channels, Collapse/Expand groups of articles, based on age, Next Unread processing, a bunch of new User Preferences. Also we are doing a bit of a reorganization of this site. The ‘Tasks’ page has become a nuisance to maintain and really not that useful, so it’s gone. And the Specs page is being totally revised to be more useful. Expect lots of additions to the Specs page as we move into another phase of development.

Keep those cards and letters coming in!
