Mission Accomplished

I originally began this blog in September 2006, but moved it in at the very start of 2008 when I realized that my original blog, created as part of my MySpace account, didn't have a lot of the features of a full fledged blog, such as simple search or date navigation features. (Although the site has undergone some changes in an effort to keep pace with Facebook, the changes at the blog were merely cosmetic and didn't really address the serious functionality issues.)

After I moved, however, I looked into importing the previous blogs into the new site for the sake of posterity. It turned out that, unlike Blogger which I use for this blog, the MySpace blog didn't have any sort of basic export function that would allow me to easily bring over the old entries—yet another confirmation that I had made the right decision to move. After doing a lot of research, I found that the best way to import the old blog was to cut and past each entry one at a time.

Well, mission accomplished—if you look at the Blog Archive at right that allows you to navigate my older blogs by month and year, you'll see that my 2006 and 2007 blogs are now available at this site. It really wasn't too onerous, just a bit labor intensive—but I'm glad it's done! (In the meantime, I discovered that the re-direct link at my MySpace site is blocked—coincidence?
