For several weeks, I’ve been toying with the idea of moving my blog from tumblr to wordpress. Well, today was the day. I don’t have huge volumes of posts, but nevertheless, the move went fairly smoothly. You may see some odd links and such in old posts. I’ll fiddle with those over the coming weeks. But for now, all is well. Old posts are here. New posts will come.
I also made a decision to register my own domain name, so you can always find me at jennifermerck.com. Easier to remember. Easier to find. I hope you’ll check in to see what I’m thinking about. Or, you could subscribe in Google Reader. Or, WordPress also has an e-mail subscription option to the right. That might be just the thing for you.
My biggest reason for moving over to WordPress is that I found that I enjoyed the comments and responses to my blog. However, my readers and I didn’t find tumblr to have the smoothest of comment systems. My hope is that WordPress will live up to its claims (and those of many WordPress bloggers) and offer smooth commenting and replying.
Let me know what you think. I’d like to think of this as a conversation, so grab a cup of coffee and let me know whether this is working . . . or what else you’d like to hear about.
