The Great Blogger Migration

Blogger has decided — for seemingly good reasons — to stop allowing publication of blogs via FTP. Hence, I need to migrate NoodleFood and my other blogs to Google “custom domains.” My blogs will still use their existing domain names (i.e. not blogspot.com), but they’ll be at subdomains hosted by Google. NoodleFood, for example, will be at blog.dianahsieh.com.

You won’t need to change your bookmarks or update your feed: everything will be redirected. However, you’ll notice a change in the template, as now I’ll be able to take advantage of Blogger’s “Layouts,” including its various cool widgets. Also, I’m going to switch the comments to some new system — probably Disqus — as that’s something that I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time.

I’ve already done the transfer for some of my blogs, and that’s gone well. However, I’m a bit worried about NoodleFood. I have over 4,000 (!!) posts to transfer, and some of my comments scripts will be partially broken.

So here’s what’s going to happen. I’ve already posted Sunday’s posts. I’m going to work on the migration tonight (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday). I hope to have everything — except perhaps the comments — up and running on the new Google domain by Monday.

If something seems really broken, you can always e-mail me at diana@dianahsieh.com. But … please don’t do that until Monday.
