Oof! It took a lot of work, but I finally converted all of my main blog to MovableType. All the comments were imported, too, so I’m pretty happy about that. Now every little piece of this domain is converted. I can finally get to blogging again. And finding a job.
It took a few hours, but I finally converted almost all of my Hemingway site into The Hemingway Blog. It’s in MovableType now and I’m very pleased with the result.
