Under the Knife
I think I've finally managed to properly install Movable Type and will be making the switch ffrom Blogger. Blogger's served me well, but I'm ready to move on. Hopefully this shouldn't affect what you see here, except for the better. In layperson terms, what I'm doing is switching publishing tools - MT should be more stable and provide more options, such as a comments utility, which means that you'll actually be able to read people's comments from beyond 3 months ago. Now I just need to figure out why I can't seem to find "Weblog Config" in my MT menu. Gah!
Maybe if I'd just waited long enough for TypePad to emerge, I wouldn't have to be split across a separate host and publishing tool; there's something to be said for being behind the curve. But Lady Crumpet doesn't have such patience and would rather slog along, tinkering and going mad with the intricacies of self-installation, rather than pay MT the $20 or so to have them install it.
