Hi folks — welcome to the new and improved LivingSmall. This should be the last move — we went from Blogspot to Typepad, and now we’ve moved to WordPress, which allows one to use blogging software and host it anyplace. There wasn’t anything wrong with Blogger or Typepad, but they were starting to feel restrictive. I haven’t been happy with my template for a while now, nor was I crazy about the idea of all my work being hosted out there in anonymous-land someplace. WordPress requires a little more work on my part, but it’s open-source, and there’s no Big Company telling me what I can and can’t do.
Many many thanks are due to the good folks at Bridgeband, my local ISP. While WordPress is pretty easy, I was having some issues moving my old entries over, and unlike some Big Anonymous ISP, Mikel and Robbie went above and beyond to get me up and running.
