Thanks to Kelly (who thanked Andy), I learned that I could now import from Blogger the few posts I had over there. The process was very easy and all was done very quickly (considering I had very few posts to start with…).
Thanks to the WordPress crew for the good work!
There are many blogs and sites out there that list the myriad of IBM bloggers. I actually have a few listed in my own blogroll, but that is just a small list of the people! You have to realise that IBM is a huge company, so there is bound to be a bunch of IBMers who blog out there. I would not dream of recreating such a list – the maintenance would just be a nightmare. However, I do believe in trying to publicise what IBMers do! So here are a few links to where you can find other IBMers who blog on their own:
One of the interesting blog to check out is eightbar (named, I assume, in reference to the eight horizontal bars making up the IBM logo). This blog is all about the presence of IBMers in the SecondLife virtual world. [Note to self: I do have to get a new video card so I can join that community!]
IBM also has a thriving internal blogging community and I would invite any IBMer out there to go visit it (contact me if you have no idea where it is)!
After Kelly, it’s my turn to move out… From this point on, I will be blogging from my new WordPress blog. I will be manually transferring some of the posts I already have here, but there will be no further updates…
Why am I moving? Well, first of all, the editor actually properly recognises HTML. I can type in HTML and I will not see my entries mungled. Also, I find the themes are nicer, and perception is fairly important on the web!
See you at the new location!
It seems that my fellow IBM blogger, Kelly, has moved off Blogger and to greener (at least she tells me) pastures.
Blogger is my first attempt at a blog, so I am not overly familiar with the various “engines” out there. However, Kelly’s move has me wondering…is there indeed better environments out there?!? Hey, if it gives me a better editor than what Blogger provides (where at least I can type in HTML without fear of reformatting), I think I would be gone in a second. Especially since I do not yet have much baggage to tie me down anywhere.
So I’m asking the blogosphere at large (OK, the two people who read me – Hi mom!): Why would I want to stay with Blogger and why would I want to move to the “X” engine/site?
