Out with the old, in with the new

*Looks at date of previous post*

So, yeah. Almost eight years since my last post. Oops.

Anyway, the title for this entry is regarding my decision to move away from WP. I’m rather tired of having to constantly make sure everything is updated practically every day, especially since I don’t update very often (obvious train, all aboard!). So I will be moving the content here to something else as soon as I can get the new CMS coded up for it.

On the very slim chance that anyone still reads my blog, or even smaller chance that anyone even has any backlinks here (aside from my own occasional backlink in comments), the URLs will change very slightly, specifically for the individual entries, and for any archives I can manage to create. I thought about doing 301 redirects, but… as I doubt anyone is still linking to individual entries, and since my SEO is probably shot anyway, I see no reason not to start ‘fresh’, even if the posts are old. I may even start posting again, not sure on that just yet. I’ll also pare down the bloglist after that, as I’m sure many of the links lead to sites that probably don’t exist anymore.

I’ll be doing the same thing at my ‘raisingagirl.com’ site also. New designs will be in hand for both (mobile ready – something that helped tank any bit of SEO I may have had), and a CMS that is far less likely to have a giant target painted on its back. It’s one I’ve used in the past on other sites, and while it is upgraded fairly consistently, it’s not as constant as WP’s updates have been as of late, so if I fall behind it shouldn’t be as huge of a deal as it would be for WP to fall behind.

So, like the title… Out with the old, in with the new.
