Goodbye LJ, Hello WordPress

So I decided to move from my LiveJournal to WordPress.  Considered paying for an account, but first I think I’ll try the generic offering.

Moving was relatively painless, although now I am really looking forward to having to deal with retagging content and possibly fixing images.  But hey, perhaps I will only need to do this once and my trusty Live Writer may help me out.  We’ll see.

I’ve been thinking more and more recently about the fact that a “blog” is a completely loaded concept.  It’s not a blog.  It’s my online notebook.  It’s a place where I want to be able to write down my thoughts, go back to previous projects, store and share information…  Evernote is sort-of supposed to be something like that, but the PC client and the entire offering feels very raw…  I mean, if I feel more comfortable taking notes using MSFT OneNote even though I can’t really share the content online as effortlessly as in Evernote, we have a problem.

The nice thing about being stuck in the stone age is… there is a lot of room for innovation and improvement.

The sucky thing about being stuck in the stone age is…  there is a lot of room for innovation and improvement.

Things I intend to do: set up static sections on this blog where I can update relevant content (are there other platforms better suited for this?)   Will write a post later on modern-day informational needs…  at least my informational needs.

Anyway, hello WordPress.
