Now that I’m using my blog again, I decided to ditch b2evolution for WordPress. B2Evolution has served me well, but I’ve never been crazy about its look-and-feel or its selection of skins. And, most of my geeky-type friends who blog, use WordPress, so I figured I would give it a shot.
Importing was easy thanks to these instructions I found. Ironically enough, it was the same procedure I used awhile back when I converted from Blosxom to b2evolution: export the existing stuff into Movable Type format, then import.
I really like the clean look-and-feel of WordPress, and it’s certainly much spiffier than the version of b2evolution I was using, although that’s not really a fair comparison because I hadn’t upgraded b2evolution since I installed it in late 2005.
In other news, I just registered lpaulriddle.com, which I’ll eventually use to house this blog and some other stuff.
