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 da.vebrig.gs and on WordPress.com 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 WP.com 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.
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!
Since work is now WorkSmart and I am retiring Kind of Digital as a professional thing, I thought it was time to sort out my blog.
After all, kindofdigital.com was once davepress.net and before that many incarnations over the years – going back to September 2004. Nearly ten years!
Anyway, the result of this is that business blogging will take place over at WorkSmart and this blog will transition to being about me me me. Well, it will probably end up still covering government and digital like it always did – because basically that’s all I think about these days.
I’ve also rehosted the whole blog at wordpress.com – mostly just to reduce the numbers of things I have to think about. I’ll be playing around with themes and layouts for a bit I think, til I find something I’m remotely happy with.
