After months of confirming the content migration from my old host (Typepad) is complete, MetaGrrrl.com is now live on WordPress.com.
Hooray! also, phew.
Posts that aren’t about this massive infrastructure change can now begin, but first I need to go wander around a good art museum.
Okay! I’ve looked at every single post at least briefly in comparing my site on Typepad and here in its new home on WordPress.com. Things look a little different, but all the content is here.
Lots of work to be done making it look prettier—when and if I decide that’s the best use of my time—but it’s good enough to start posting here again.
It’s bloggin’ time.
Working on fixing some formatting issues as I proof my migrated data.
Finding a display issue with how the old !more tag is handled.
After more looking it seems like:
– you can’t search for HTMl like that tag in posts on wordpress.com, wait, no, I’m (delightfully) wrong and you can.
– I did a sneaky thing for a while in 2004 and on by styling the excerpt but not hiding it on a subpage to create a different look for my short linky blog posts (which look like nothing so much as tweets, a couple years before Twitter).
– debating how to deal with this now in the migrated content… and deciding to edit them all to remove the excerpt tag now that I’ve figured out how to find them all.
