Big Changes In The Works: Update My RSS Feed URL

Things have been quiet for the past couple weeks, but an undercurrent of change has been happening within. My hosting account expired this month – which also marks 3 years of yammering (err… blogging) – I switched accounts, changed blog engines, migrated the content, and tried to resolve all existing links to the new engine.

I’ve joined the millions of a happy WordPress users. This site was running dasBlog – now dasBlog was pretty swell 4 years ago, but so was PHP-nuke, DotNetNuke, table-based-design, ASP.NET Themes & Skins, and ASP.NET AJAX. :) Web technology changes at an accelerated pace, and some software / technologies / frameworks need to run their¬†inevitable¬†natural evolutionary course (extinction). dasBlog did its job, but it’s time to move on – not to mention I’ll sleep easier knowing that Rhett won’t be taunting me about how my blog reminds him of SharePoint. Adios dasBlog! :)

The new digs:

  • WordPress running on IIS 7 hosted by GoDaddy’s shared hosting plan ($203 for 4 years!!)
  • Redirections by ManagedFusion Url Rewriter
  • WordPress plug-ins installed:
    • FeedBurner FeedSmith – uses feedburner feeds in place of the WP vanilla feeds
    • Google Analytics for WP
    • Google XML Sitemaps
    • WP More Feeds – generates feeds for categories like musings (this feature was native to dasBlog, but not to WP)

Be sure to update this blog’s RSS feed to: http://adam.kahtava.com/journal/feed/. Old feeds will continue to work, but you may experience some oddities.

    Congrats! You finally figured out what we’ve all known for years. Welcome, welcome.

    I might also suggest you run:

    WP-SpamFree and Akismet
    Login Lockdown
    All-in-one SEO
    WP Super Cache

    And also, what’s wrong with you? You don’t answer text messages anymore? I see what’s going on here.
