Why a new format for the blog? I know some people aren't comfortable with change, and this isn't just change for the sake of it. My blog, so far, has not been a 'proper' one, in that hasn't been created using blogging software that allows comments, track backs and a feed. For most readers this is a non-issue, but with the increasing popularity of blogs as a medium of information exchange, I've been receiving quite a few requests for these features. So after weeks of research and a few days of playing around, I've decided to shift to blogger, which meets all my requirements (I toyed with the idea of using moveable type, but I had a few glitches with it that would have required some serious tecchie help to overcome, and blogger is just fine for my needs).
So here you go. A new format. One big advantage is that I'll be able to update the site and post more frequently. It's a lot simpler adding a blog entry (all I need is access to a browser) than it is changing the site (which requires ftp access; not difficult, just not always available).
Please feel free to use the comments section. Interactivity. What more could you ask for?
