Shifting to WordPress :-)

September 17th, 2007

My dear friends, I’m shifting my blog to wordpress. The blog may be unavailable for a day or two since I’m experimenting a few things. The experiments will definitely be updated on my tech blog.

Just to assure you, my non-tech blog URL (http://blog.aswinanand.com) and its feed URL (http://blog.aswinanand.com/atom.xml) will continue to work as they were :-). Thanks to the magic of mod_rewrite. The same goes with my tech blog also. The existing links http://tech.aswinanand.com and http://tech.aswinanand.com/atom.xml (for feeds) will work as well. That saves you from updating your feed links ;-). In a day or two, I will be updating my feed burner feeds as well.

Shifting my blog to wordpress, writing a wordpress plugin, wildcard domains, htaccess and mod_rewrite… whoa! All that was such a nice learning experience. Will be posting all that over some time on my tech blog.

Thanks a lot to all my readers :)

Update: The shift has been completed. The old non-tech blog is at http://aswinanand.blogspot.com/ and the old tech blog is at http://techlight.blogspot.com/.

    Hi Aswin,

    Welcome to WordPress. :)

    Your blog theme is very clean and nice on eyes.

    Just a small suggestion. I guess you are not using good permalinks for your blog. If possible change it when your blog is young and not spidered by Google, otherwise it will be very difficult to do it at a later point of time and you will be stuck with the current permalinks structure.

    Just my two cents :)
