RTDM is contemplating on moving from blogspot to a hosted site (where I shall be able to use WordPress in all its glory). I have been meaning to do this for some time now but the horrible effects this will have on people who are linked to my permalinks has made me dither. But alas I am unable to find a way to device a technological solution for this because redirectors work in (as far as I know and I don’t know much) the header section and there is no way I will be able to have “permalink-specific” redirections. [Each individual entry goes into the body section and the header section is reused from the front page]. So people who have bookmarked to permalinks will have to reset their links—–everyone will be redirected to the new homepage where there will be a nifty search box that will enable you to go to the post of your choice.
But for now don’t change any bookmarks. Please.
My new blog is still in a 3/4 created state—kind of like Puri’s Jagannath. I am still struggling with putting my tracker in the footer and most importantly finding a good, cheap, reliable host (Yes I know I am being unreasonable). One of the main reasons why I was tentative about moving is because in terms of reliability, blogspot rocks. You do lose a post or two if you aren’t careful but overall its availability has been beyond reproach. Suggestions are solicited.
My new-look blog can be seen as a work in progress at http://www.freepgs.com/greatbong . People who could suggest improvements in the design are welcome to opine. And extend concrete help. And oh reload it a few times to see the changing headers—there are 9 in all.
[This is also the reason why updates may be a bit slow]
