I’m switching my website software from Movable Type to WordPress, and moving to a new host.
The migration is expected to last from approximately 3 AM EST Monday until 4 PM EST Tuesday. The site will still be visible during that time, but comments will be disabled. (This is to prevent any new comments from disappearing in the move.)
This is not a site redesign, so you shouldn’t notice many differences. Even the commenting system is pretty much the same, though you’ll be able to use Markdown instead of HTML if you want to.
The conversion to WordPress was done by Automattic, who did an amazing job of getting all of the site’s customizations and complexities — this website is 17 years old — to work on a new platform. Automattic is also providing the new hosting on their Pressable service. I’m not sure I could have done it without them.
Hopefully everything will work smoothly.
