Bit of Ivory

New software, new look. . .

June 1st, 2006 · No Comments

You may have noticed that Bit of Ivory looks a bit. . . different. That’s because I switched my blogging software from Movable Type to WordPress. I was getting sick of the comment spam, the trackback spam, the simple unwieldyness of MT. I looked around, especially at other blogs, and I really liked what I saw at Austen Blog, and discovered they were using WordPress. So I convinced my brother to install it for me. Everything has moved over relatively easily– it took my exported posts from MT and imported them very nicely, including comments, and I was able to transfer my image file over quickly. I also found a 3-column theme from Kaushal Sheth called Abstrakt3 which I think I can customize pretty easily.

I’m especially excited to be able to add an image gallery, a portfolio, and other areas to change this site from a simple blog to a real personal website.
So look for even more changes coming up pretty soon, and I hope you like the new Bit of Ivory!
