Beginning again

I started this blog a couple of months ago on Blogger as it was the path of least resistance for me then. I’m moving it to WordPress now (hosted at, mostly because I prefer an open source solution and the idea of “owning” my own data and hosting.

I did look at Tumblr as an alternative as well, but even though it’s very pretty and looks like low maintenance, they don’t explicitly support exporting your data, and since I’m about to move the blog anyway, I figured I might as well go all the way. But I may try to borrow some ideas from Tumblr when customizing this blog.
