Bye Bye Movable Type

December 22, 2010 - news

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.
