A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Mission Accomplished

I have successfully (I hope) moved all of the blog contents over to this new WordPress-powered interface. I also simplified the address of the blog from tsukublog.alientimes.org to blog.alientimes.org. I made links from the old site to the new, so none of your bookmarks will be broken, but it might be a good idea to update them anyway, just in case. And, if you do find any broken links, please let me know.

I also updated the site feed and email notification systems, which are hosted by FeedBurner. I think that I did everything properly, but we will have to wait until tomorrow morning to find out if the email notification is working properly.

There are still a few minor kinks to work out on the new site, but I will get to them in the next little while.

I think this new website is a lot easier to use than the hobbled version of Blogger that we had to work with because we were publishing to our own domain by ftp. The biggest difference that the users will notice is that we can now have a list of the categories used on the site, and we can also offer lists of posts by author, category, month, and title. I hope that our readers find it easier to look for articles of interest now.

If you have any comments about the new site, we would love to hear them!
