Just a quick note that my friend John Painter has jumped into the blogging pool. I am amazed at his knowledge of fashion. You will be too. Feel free to visit his blog. I’ve also listed it in the blogroll.
There’ll be some changes made
Due to the overwhelming number of votes for the Deserta theme, I will be implementing that one during this weekend. I just have a few tweaks to make to it, like StatCounter, and a HostM tag.
I may tire of the photo at the top, but once I have the theme up and running, I’ll be able to completely test if that can be changed.
Old Starfire Gone
I cancelled the old Starfire account this evening. If you go there, you will get a 404 error message.

annual blog migration post
I’ve been considering the possibility of migrating this blog to a different service. Typepad has been really good to me, but I think I’ve outgrown it. I’d like to have more control over the blog’s innards. I’ve been on TypePad for years, but a couple of years ago I decided to play with WordPress.
If you check my archives, you’ll see this is not a quick decision. I’ve been considering it since 2005. It seems I always think about this topic at this time of year. Do a search for WordPress over on the right to see how long I’ve been thinking about it.
There are two (actually three) types of WordPress. The WordPress I talk about, is WordPress.org. It’s a free download, but requires that you have a host for the files, and you must install it. The other is WordPress.com. This is also free, but it’s like Typepad in that you have a lot less control over things. No download necessary,… takes less than five minutes to get a blog. The third WordPress is a multiple users version and is generally used by big companies like the New York Times (blogs).
All of this is to say, that I will definitely be moving the blog over to WordPress, but before I quit Typepad, I’ll need to find out how to move my Typepad Photos blog.
I don’t think I mentioned my hosting service, which has been really fantastic. They have been so good, that I have one of their tags at the bottom of my whispers blog. They’re called HostM.
