New Blog Starts With A Web Archive

I’ve just started using a new blogging tool and couldn’t face migrating our old blog to the new tool. So what’s the solution? Dogfooding! We archived our website a couple of days ago as part of a demo, and exported part of that web archive and published it on our webserver.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Archive the current website and blog – done
  • Publish the archive in the open – done
  • Re-blog selected articles (for convenience mainly) in the new tool – to be done
  • Redirect original URLs to archived URLs – to be done

We could’ve written a script to migrate the content from the old CMS to new CMS, but we’re all busy, and this web archive saves time.

So, welcome to the new blog. And here’s the blog archive.
