A Fresh Start

Hello, WordPress. Farewell, MovableType.

Don't get me wrong. MT will always have a place in my geeky heart. But, due to some restrictions, I decided to make my move.

I never thought I'll see the day that I'll begin deleting MT from my server (I'm still not completely done as of this date, actually). When I found MT some 2 or 2.5 years ago, I thought I'm stuck for the rest of my wired life. Call it technological kismet or something. After moving from one content management system after another, I was ready to commit to MT forever.

Alas! It wasn't a marriage made in WWW heaven after all.

I resisted leaving. After all, I already feel as though I can work with all the kinks and such of MT. That's why I wanted to stick with it.

But, at some point, I knew I had to go.

So, here I am. Starting over. Getting to know WP bit by bit, like a new friend.

And, in the true spirit of fresh beginnings, I decided not to import all my previous files from 2002 ('been onling journalling/blogging since 1999, though). They feel like baggage from a previous relationship at this stage.

I want something new. I want something different.

Let's see how this one goes.
