I’ve been making a few changes around here!

This blog has existed in one form or another for a very long time – since September 2004 in fact. It’s a bit of a hotch-potch of content, because as well as the posts I have been making regularly on here in the form of a personal blog, I also have imported into it the archives of various others sites I have maintained in the past, whether for work or other projects.

Over this time it has had many guises, names and URLs, but has been settled at and on for a fair few years.

However, I have this week migrated the whole archive of my blog to a self hosted WordPress instance. This is because I want to merge the content from the SensibleTech website into this one, and some of the content requires some customisation that isn’t possible on without shelling out more cash than I would like to.

It shouldn’t look too different at the moment, as I have stuck with the same theme and only tweaked the odd display setting.

So far I have imported the standard posts and the table containing the list of local government blogs. All this content is stored in the category ‘sensibletech‘ so if needed, it can be found in one place.

The next job is to import the link library, which is made up of a customer post type, custom taxonomies and some custom theme code to make it work. That will probably be a long job, so don’t hold your breath!
