Tagging & SIMS

I wonder sometimes that more than 50% of what I read/learn/know about tagging gets its root somwhere in berkley SIMS center.

Migration

I am figuring out a way to migrate all my posts from blogspot account to here.

Update: I came across this post & link after quite some searching on the net as well as the blogosphere and as of sep 15 there has been ‘import from blogger’ feature that has been added on the site but has not probably gone through a round of testing.

I tried to check it out by going to https://rajan.wordpress.com/wp-admin/import.php , I chose the blogger option and gave my blogger user id & password but got the following error message. 😦

libcurl was built with SSL disabled, https: not supported!

Log in to Blogger

Login failed. Please re-enter your username and password.

which means that either cUrl is built without the SSL support or it is not able to find all the lib and include files for SSL to function.

I have logged a bug with them & hope that they fix it soon

Golden Ticket from WordPress

I woke up to the following message in my mail box.
“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away you entered your email address on http://wordpress.com/ to get a blog.We’re now inviting small groups to use WordPress.com and your email address was selected today!
While you’re on a string of good luck it might be a good day to buy a lottery ticket.Cheers,The WordPress.com Team”
Now is’nt that a wonderful way for a day to begin. No blogger hassles anymore ! I will be soon migrating to my new wordpress blog :- ) and post there (as long as there is not hefty charge on that one, Matt has previously promised that wp.com is going to be free) .
I got the user id that I wanted ‘rajan’ https://rajan.wordpress.com 🙂
Hope I got a golden ticket from flock tommorow instead of long wait till october 😉
