It’s been a good run. I think I started using Movable Type as my blogging platform in 2003, but it was time for a change. Most importantly because Movable Type blogs have become spammer magnets. A month or so ago, after a particularly nasty spam storm, my hosting company suspended my account and I was forced to disable comments entirely. Where’s the fun in blogging if no one can comment?
So I’ve migrated to WordPress and I am hopeful that it will prove to be better at handling and filtering the spam comments. The installation process was just as easy as everyone says it is, and I’m already a fan of the interface. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
