Why move? Since my blog is hosted at IBM, I've always felt a bit funny aboutposting things that weren't strictly business related. Constrained. Just a feeling. Never had my wrist slapped, for something I wrote on my blog anyway. ;-)But I have kept most of my posts pretty technical.
I could keep my developerWorks blog and start another one,but that doesn't feel right either. And I don't need to feel double the guilt for why I haven't posted to my blogs recently.My conclusion is that it's time to move my blog off IBM property.
Finally, I did the smart thing and set up a virtual feed at feedburner (listedabove), so that when I move next time, it'll be complete transparent, for feedaggregators anyway.
BTW, it was mostly a snap to copy my content from developerWorks back intoBlogger, since Blogger supports programmatic posting (more or less, it's AtomPub). And the Roller implementation at developerWorkshas a nice little function to dump all my entries out as a feed. Afterthat, it was a simple matter of programming.The only real problem was that Blogger only allows 50 programmatic posts a dayto a blog, so it took a couple of days to perform the move.
