So you may have heard the recent news that Blogger will stop supporting FTP publishing in March. This makes me rather distraught because I use that publishing method for this site, so it can peacefully co-exist along side my photo gallery and other such things while remaining simple. Unfortunately none of their proposed solutions will allow me to operate the site how I want.
Also, I've been meaning to make many large changes to the site, such as:
- Dedicated Project Page - so that readers can see project specific posts and details without hunting through the archives.
- Dedicated Resume/About Me page - so that prospective employers can easily access all the information they'd like about me and my work.
- Better Photo Gallery Setup - I love sharing photos, but right now my current Photo Gallery is not working well....
- A more professional name/appearance - as much as I love The Matt Cave, given my foray in to the working world this May when I graduate, I need a more professional web presence that will be easy to read/navigate for those employers. This means a nicer color scheme as well!
Because of these desires as well as dissatisfaction with my current hosting, I've gone ahead and registered http://www.mattkrass.com/ and imported this whole blog in to a WordPress installation at that location. It will take me a while to migrate all the links and such, and likely many of them will not work once this site goes offline. Unfortunately it just isn't worth the effort of the undertaking, because of the difficulty in converting from Blogger's static file layout to the PHP/SQL indexing WordPress uses. Once the migrating is as done as can reasonably be, I will be taking this site offline, but I will retain ownership of the address which will redirect to my new site. Thanks to my loyal readers, and please see the new blog to update any RSS feeds and bookmarks!
