Tech Housekeeping

Since I have recently approached the maximum space available at my current host and my traffic has increased significantly (maxing out my bandwidth), it’s time to get some breathing room. My husband has taken on the task of finding a new host service for us both, and he will convert my blog from the space-devouring Movable Type to WordPress.

This means several things. First, you may find the site inaccessible while the transfer is occurring (I am not sure exactly when that will be, though). Second, there will be a new look, probably one that is cleaner and less dense. I’m exploring various themes and skins for a look I like. Third, since my archives are being transferred from MT to WordPress, all my previous links will be broken. I’m not thrilled about this, but there it is — and hopefully I won’t ever have to switch publishing platforms again (famous last words) so the links will become permanent (just like the name implies). Fourth, I’ll be using a new domain name that heretofore was simply redirecting to this one. The new domain name is kathrynpetroharper.com (I’ve owned it since I got married), and kathrynpetro.com will redirect to it.

I just wanted to let you know what’s up in regard to blog housekeeping. As for meatspace housekeeping, don’t even go there. It’s kind of scary.
