For many of you this post will mean absolutely nothing, but I wanted to write about the change in appearance in the blog. I was a devout user of Movable Type for quite a while. It was a robust, complicated, and designed for a power blogger. Something I am not. I thought about it, realized, all I wanted to really do was write and decided to move. I am no longer paying $70 a year for a hosted site, and now I am using wordpress.com with a domain redirect. This only costs me $10, so I am saving money.
I do loose some abilities that I had always planned to use, but never did. I no longer have subdomains for use with my Google Apps account. My email still works with google apps, but now the URL http://calendar.joshferris.com, no longer goes to my hosted gcal, but redirects to my blog. I am hoping that they have subdomain support in the future.
I wanted to point out that I am using a provided template, but the banner picture is a shot from la montaña Illiniza Sur. A mountain near Quito, that totally kicked my ass one Sunday. But hey, that photo is not stock, totally the real thing!
