I am finally leaving Movable Type and going over to Word Press. I have multiple problems with Movable Type and much of it may have to do with my own lack of technological ability. That’s fine. I need to have a site that is:
1. easily navigable
3. easy on the eye
Right now, none of these things are true. I have categories but nobody can find them. I can’t label posts with “tags” that will then take you to all the other posts in that category. If you’re a reader, then you have to know where to find things … and that’s not a good experience. Hell, even I can’t find things on my own site and often Google a post I’m looking for in order to find it. Not a good system.
Also, I’m tired of all of the Gibson Girls. I adored them back in 2003 when I started up on Movable Type, but I’m over them now. Buh-bye, girls. Charles Dana’s girls, and also me AS a Gibson Girl. They have served their purpose, and I’ve been loyal, but it is time to move on.
I want a clean simple homepage, with a big banner, and easily find-able links on the side. That’s it.
My friend Mark is doing the export (he’s the best) and I am quite frightened but I know that I am in capable hands.
It might be a bit awkward around here for a bit, as I work out glitches and things like that, and my Permalinks will change (a scary prospect, seeing as I have so many links on IMDB and other places), but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
Posting will be light over the next couple of days.
