After toying around with the idea of moving our blog from Typepad to a WordPress-powered site (hosted by Dreamhost) for a while, we made a sudden decision to make the move today. We’ve been Typepad users for a few years now but have decided to move our blog to a WordPress-powered site.
We were concerned about the process of exporting all of our posts from Typepad to WordPress, but it was fairly painless.
While we were mostly happy with Typepad, WordPress will give us complete control of the site; it will also cost a good bit less. Actually, WordPress is a free download, but we will pay for hosting at Dreamhost. BTW, there is a free hosted version of WordPress at WordPress.com for those who want to blog without dealing with the technical side.
So, welcome to our new digs on the Web!
