I did it. I swapped my entire blog over to WordPress from the Movable Type engine. I made the switch, and I’m glad I did.
I know I’ve been threatening to do it for ages – heck, years – but I’ve always run into some obstacle or another that prevented me from getting busy. Laziness, lack of time, technical reasons, or simply no reason to switch at all… every time I’ve tried to start the process I’ve backed down. Until now.
I just closed my eyes and went to work. The best part of all: it was freakin’ easy. Really easy. And painless. The end result? Great speed, accessibility, efficiency, a great working interface, the templating engine is easy to work with, the plugin architecture is fantastic, well developed, and chock full of plugins… I mean, I could go on and on. And maybe I will, once I have more time, but for now I’ll just say this: Drop that clunky Movable Type site and get into a modern, fast, better implemented WordPress installation. You’ll be glad you did.
