Welcome to WordPress

Thanks to the Blogharbor team led by John Keegan for a smooth rollover to WordPress – my favorite blogging platform. Hope you all like the theme that i have chosen. I may be switching to a different theme as i experiment with themes some more.

You may notice a few problems:

1. Comments on old posts are closed.

2. All comments that were imported were imported as Anonymous comments. So your names have been lost in transit due to incompatibilities between blogware and wordpress. Sorry about that.

As you all know it is a tradition at this blog to change the look and feel every Fall and we have done it for the 3rd time but this time we have changed our blogging platform itself. How is that for a change?

This blog has now completed 3 years and 5 months and we have nearly 450 posts and 850 comments.

Thanks to you all for your support and encouragement without which i would not have survived this long and I would not have been able to learn all the things that i have learnt through blogging. In a quite unexpected manner, my knowledge of blogging has actually helped in my current job immensely.

    Welcome to our new PressHarbor.com platform! We hope you enjoy the power and flexibility of WordPress and the ease of our “managed” WordPress hosting.

    Thanks Archana for your kind words.

    John, what a surprise to receive a comment from you. You are the best. Thank you so much for making this migration a painless affair. I haven’t seen a better customer service professional than you.

    Thanks Sibu. Sure, i will do a post on WordPress.

    Ganesh, thanks a lot for your kind words. I wouldn’t have survived the blogosphere this long without your encouragement from day 1. Thanks for sharing the ride with me over the past 3.5 years.

    I also noticed your new URL.. its now plain sastwingees.org.. your very own URL.. great..

    Are you still with blogharbor hosting? Your old URL is automatically redirecting to this one..

    The theme is very nice…

    your right side theme contains the login link & register link too. It means any one can register and login to your blog.. I just tried, and it displayed the register window.

    I just found a bug (donno if its really a bug).. my first comment is moderated, while subsequent comments are allowed.. as i am seeing now..

    Does your new blog support Moblogging?

    Thanks a lot. Yes, i am still with same hosting company but they now have a pressharbor which does wordpress hosting.

    Yes, i am letting anyone come in create a userid and subscribe. Do you see a problem?

    I found all the 3 comments of yours in the moderation queue. So i am not able to understand where or what the bug is?

    Thanks sukumar.. I thought, the register link may enable user to post in your blog.. (now i understood, that registration only gives subscriber role 🙂 )

    when i wrote the first comment, it went on moderation and not displayed. But subsequent comments were displayed. (I later found that it was displayed only to me, and not for others. so its not a bug 🙂 )
