I feel about system administration like I feel about changing my car oil. I can do it. But I’d prefer to have a professional do it for me.
I don’t think it’s a bad exercise to run your own WordPress, but I get lazy about doing the upgrades. And I think I get enough practices with devops running my own VPS. So, in the midst of upgrading my VPS, I finally mustered up the resignation to move my WordPress blog to wordpress.com.
An impressively simple operation. Just went into my old WordPress dashboard. Select tools > export and download my old blog’s data as an XML file. Then uploaded that to my new dashboard here. Voila!
Now to find a new theme.
