Hello WordPress, Goodbye Blogger

Blogger recently announced the end of ftp publishing and after 7 years on that platform, I decided to migrate my blog to a self-hosted WordPress platform, and after a few days of tweaking the conversion is finally over.

Yeah I know, the template looks nothing like WordPress. I actually had to "uglify" a classic template to make it flow with the rest of my site. So far, no regrets. Not that I had a choice. With the ftp publishing shutting down, Blogger's only option was to get hosted on Blogspot. I just wasn't prepared to let Blogger pull another trick down the road, so I decided to split. At least Blogger was graceful enough to allow easy API access to the posts. It certainly facilitated the migration.

So long Blogger. It was a good ride while it lasted. But the journey continues on the WordPress train, with this being my first WordPress post.
