09/20/13 221 W - + 3 - 1 Future of This Blog (Platform)?


Any web heads here? I'd love some input on the future of this blog's platform. That is, the software that runs the thing. Presently, I'm using Pivot 1.40.5 or something. Prior version of Pivot X. Way old. Manual everything. Stores as flat files. Thousands of entries dating to 2009. It's a bit fugly, and certainly lacks such useful bells and whistles as tag clouds, Facebook integration, and SQL storage. The time is ripe for an upgrade or a replacement. Here some options I'm considering:

Second question in here:

Meet the new blog, same as the old blog.

Thanks for any perspectives.





DISCLAIMER: I’m not really an expert. I do, however, know enough to be dangerous.

I’d vote for Wordpress in that setup isn’t a big deal, depending on your web host. I’ve been getting my fingers into Wordpress, and the community has tons of support. I think you’d be able to set up a new site/blog AND be able to keep your legacy site. That might be the most pragmatic course to take, but of course it would be cool to import your old posts. Not sure if the effort would be worthwhile.

Not familiar with Bolt. Fire/EMS blogs is an interesting idea.

You’re welcome to PM me if you want to bounce more ideas around.
