Welcome… Again…


My blog is now in its new home on asp.net. I have mixed feelings about the move.


While it’s different, it’s already clear that .Text is a better solution than BlogX was, and has people actively supporting it. But I’m unhappy about two things:



  1. I lose my google redirection for a few months

  2. I’m going to have to pony up for technorati to track this new blog.

The archive will remain at http://blogs.gotdotnet.com/ericgu for a while.

  1. Eric, do you plan to import your old blog posts into this one?

  2. Eric says:

    I’d love to be able to import, but I’m not sure whether there are any tools to do so.

  3. Hi Eric,

    I will be importing previous GDN posts directly into .Text.

    This should include Entires (with previous dates), categories, and comments.

  4. Write a record to the old blog with the URL of the new feed, people usually update their news feed readers when seeing that.

    The new blog does not validate, I get the following error:

    line 2, column 62: XML Parsing error: :2:62: syntax error [help]
