Only one way to find out. - cetan
Only one way to find out.
There's only one way for me to really find out how well switching from LJ to WordPress on http://bernhard.us works for blogging. Despite the momentum of LJ, I'm going to give full-time WordPress a shot.

Maybe I'll abandon it after a week, or maybe it'll be permanent, I'm not sure. Hopefully things won't be too confusing.

So, here's the deal:

1) I'm keeping my LJ account, just not posting to it. I'd like to be able to read and respond to friends-only posts made by, well, my friends :)

2) My wordpress journal is already syndicated through LJ here: cetan_feed. Just add that feed to your friends list and you'll see the updates I make to the blog. The actual address of the blog is: http://www.bernhard.us/rob/blog/

3) Feel free to reply to the feed or to add comments right to the blog. I'll be reading both and responding to both.

4) If you find all this silly and don't want to read the blog coming from bernhard.us, I completely understand.

Here's to trying.

Looks like something happened to comments during the last upgrade. I'm not sure why, but it's treating every comment as if it were spam or coming from an insecure proxy. I have no clue why :( Sorry.

This should be fixed.

Re: error message?

Wow, that's interesting. It's not "my" error message in that I didn't write it (it's the default value)

I'll see what's up and let you know. Sorry 'bout that :(

Re: error message?

Ok, this looks to be fixed. It was a anti-spam plugin that (for some unknown reason) doesn't have any configuration interface. Lame. I've uninstalled the plugin from Wordpress.

One thing I have noticed is that the LJ syndication information isn't really correct. I've had posts that took 5 hours to appear. Also, you may not have this problem with WordPress, but Blogger posts Zulu time in the RSS feed and LJ just uses that. So, I usually see my posts as being written a few hours in the future.

It would appear that WordPress feeds use UTC even though I specificly set it in the config to default to -5 hours from that. So, my posts do appear to come from the future.

Also, I think LJ polls a feed based on the time between updates. For example, if you post once a day, it'll poll your feed a couple times a day looking for changes. But if you only post once a week, LJ will poll the feed less often.
