Changing my blog software

You may have noticed that my blog looks significantly different than it used to. That’s because I switched from using Google’s service to using WordPress installed on my own domain. I’m going to be using WordPress for blogs on my website for St. Gabriel Church so I thought I would just convert everything over.

This means that many of my intra-blog links will be broken for a while and if you’ve bookmarked any of my links they will no doubt be broken. As far as I can tell all of the content including comments is still there. It just is probably going to have a different name.

I hope this isn’t too confusing for my readers but in the long run I think it will work better.

One of the things I like about WordPress versus blogger is that WordPress automatically cross-links each individual entry so that I don’t have to put any “next entry” and “previous entry” link in each of my posts. Because I write so many blog entries that are actually serial articles it was really hard to navigate under blogger unless I went to a lot of trouble to manually add links. I won’t have to do that anymore.
