Migrated to WordPress

As of today this blog doesn’t run on my home-made-blogging software anymore. Instead it uses WordPress.

When I started this blog, I thought it would be a nice experience to build my own blogging system. And it was, but….after I build the basic blogging system, I wanted to add more features, eg. comments, pingbacks, etc. After a while I realized I didn’t had time (or didn’t make time) to add these features, so I started looking for another solution.

I heard and saw a lot of good things about WordPress, but it uses PHP, a language I never really looked into. But I was getting more and more enthusiastic about WordPress, so I decided to make the switch.

Last few days I created my own WordPress theme, so I could use my existing layout. I moved all the data from my old blog, setup mod_rewrite for the old urls and here’s the result. I still have to migrate my Dutch Blog, but that’ll happen somewhere next week.

If you run into dead links or if you’re experiencing any problems on this blog, please let me now. You can use the comments for this, they are working!!!! If you’d like to comment on any of the older articles, please do so.

    WordPress bevalt al een paar jaar erg goed. Plezier!
