After many months of paralyzing indecisiveness, I have finally decided to move to WordPress. You can now find me at http://theidleist.wordpress.com/
I’ve made this move after a lot of thought and not without some sadness. If I had held on for another four months, this blog would have completed 10 years this October. 10 years! It sounds incredible. And this blog has witnessed my journey from adolescent to adult in these last many years. My older posts often make me wince and cringe, but equally often make me smile; and they remind me of the person I used to be.
But in the last one year, I have lost my blogging mojo. I hadn’t written a single post in 2013. I’ve always been an erratic blogger, but this was the first time since I started blogging in 2004 that I went a whole year without a single post. I needed a drastic change to get me going again – and moving to a new blog seemed like a good idea.
Of course, practical concerns played a big part in this decision. WordPress seems more user-friendly and customizable, whereas I struggle with even basic formatting on blogger. My blogger account settings are messed up – my Google/Blogger account is linked to an old Yahoo email – and this makes commenting on other blogs a massive pain. Moreover, my RSS settings are also weird, and don't allow other bloggers to follow me. Finally, almost all the bloggers I follow are on WordPress so this move would make commenting and following easier.
So, thank you for your patience, and for reading and commenting all these years. Like I keep saying, your comments really make my day. I hope you will continue to read and continue to encourage me to write at http://theidleist.wordpress.com/
See you on the other side!
