Completed the Move - WordPress to BlogEngine.NET

EDIT (2014-07): Since writing this, I’ve since ditched this system and upgraded again. See this post to find where is at from a technical standpoint.

EDIT (2016-12): Well, I’ve done it again. Now I’m using - the Node.js static site generator.

I’ve done it. I’ve moved off of WordPress. I’m not sure what it is I didn’t like about WordPress, but I just didn’t. It’s not that they’re too big… shoot, I work at Microsoft. It’s not that their blogging solution doesn’t work because it definitely does. I guess I just felt like I was in a machine. I like to feel free.

I don’t like to feel like any second I’m going to get hit with another $12/yr charge because I want to add such-and-such feature.

I’m using BlogEngine.NET now and it has thrilled me so far. It plugged in easily to my own self-hosted site and seems to have the perfect set of features. Now I feel like I can customize all I want. I feel free.
