Phew!! Did it – moved from Posterous to WordPress and lived to type the tale…

I finally moved house from Posterous to WordPress. I love WP and have always been happy to use it. What had attracted me to Posterous was the offer of posting via email – it was a treat to type, attach and send without having to log in. I hummed and hawed and delayed for the past three weeks before moving everything here, despite assurances from others that it was painless. Posterous has been getting flakier and flakier this week (Booo!), so finally blocked out everything else, shelved all excuses, and tackled the migration today. After one false start (I imported and earlier incomplete backup by mistake) it finally all fell into place a few moments ago. Phew!!

Now it looks like what is is – I have just moved to a new house, all the boxes have been dumped in the hallways and on the floor, I think I have almost everything but I won’t be sure until I sort it all and put a ‘smacht’ on it. That will be my rainy day task for the next while.

Thanks WordPress for making the migration easy.

Next two problems – remember how to reconnect with ITB (Irish Teacher Blogs), and what to do for RSS feeds now that Google Reader is being put to pasture…all easy-to-implement suggestions welcome…
