I’m A WordPress Fanboy

When Automattic acquired Intense Debate a few months ago, I committed to Toni Schneider and Matt Mullenweg that I’d convert my blogs from Movable Type to WordPress and become a WordPress fanboy.  After the acquisition they sent me a bunch of stickers (along with my Automattic stock certificate).  I’ve been dutifully putting my stickers up on lamp posts, doors, and computers all around the country.  As of right now, I can also say that I’ve converted this blog over to WordPress.

If you notice any problems or wonky issues, please holler – either by email or by leaving a comment.  If you have suggestions for WordPress plugins that I must put on this blog, please leave them in the comments.

  • Conrats on the changeover!

  • I've become a WP junkie Brad. Use it on slews of blogs. My favs are: WP automatic update, WP XML sitemap, all-in-one SEO, Vipers video, askimet, WordPress stats, Share-this, and Feedburner feedsmith. The link in this comment goes to a list of these plugins with links to download each of them on WordPress.org.

    Not sure if it is the swap to WP or your new ISP, but you load a lot faster than you used to. I think WP will server you well.

  • Looks like the title tag is throwing errors in ff for your blog on the homepage and individual posts such as:
    <title>bloginfo('name')></title>
    Where "bloginfo('name')>" should be a variable – could be just the extra ">" messing things up.

    Other than that things seem to load faster.

  • Thanks. I noticed that one this morning. On it.

  • Welcome to the family. 🙂

    • And what a delightful family it is!

  • Well, I need not convert my WordPress, but intensedebate is it worth.

    • I think Intense Debate is great, but I’m also biased because I was an investor.

  • Good to hear you successfully change from Moveable Type to WordPress blogging platform.

    You might consider installing the 'Sociable' plugin on your WordPress blog. It is a plugin that will automatically add links to your favorite social bookmarking sites on your post pages. The plugin can be downloaded at:
