For 6 years this blog of mine has been a host to a lot of events in my life, even though I don't update it frequently these days. Right now, since I just got my first salary from my job, I think it's about high time to switch.
I love blogger, and I've seen it evolve through thick and thin, and it went through a heck of a lot of changes, most recently the new google+ like interface and what not, but I stayed loyal to it until now.
However, times do change and I guess we gotta move forward to bigger and better things. Even though I am still using blogger's old html-based template editing, I still find it quite hard to edit my blog with regards to design. It's also probably the reason why my blog is stock in V8 and not going to V9.
I also want my blog to also contain a wiki of sorts, filled with nothing but random thoughts blurting from my brain. From politics to religion, from science to arts, from anime to manga, from computers to programming, I don't think a blog is enough for this (and no, using fb as a way to express myself is a bit too risky these days lol).
Finally, I just want a domain of my own. A website that I can call my own. I know that I can place my domain name into blogger, but it just doesn't feel as if this blog is my own. I mean sure I made this blog, heck I was the one who designed this template, but I do think that since there a ".blogspot.com" added beside my online name means that the site is not fully mine. I do want my own space, although hosted at a hosting company, but at least that hosting company doesn't "own" the domain, since I could just lease it fair and square.
Cut the story short, I'm switching blog hosts. I'll be running a wordpress blog and a bliki (personal wiki) on a paid server. I'm not sure if I could migrate my blogposts from here to there but it doesn't really matter. I'll keep this blog up until probably when blogger dies, which I doubt will happen in the long run.
It's been six magical years dear blog, but don't think of it as saying goodbye, think of it as... "see you later"
See you guys around! I'll be posting the url of my new blog and bliki once I get it up and running. ja ne~
