Finished migrating this blog from Blogspot/Blogger to my own domain. Instead of a bloated, plodding, XHTML/JS-driven piece of crap hosted on a restrictive external service -- this is now a self-hosted, static site delivered straight to you without the need of a database or any client/server-side scripting (thanks go to Hugo for making it easy). This means I get to control my own content, and you get a much leaner and meaner site.
However, this post is about to morph into a bit of a mini-rant, and that's because I also had to set up redirection from the old site to the new one. See, Blogger is a Google service, and as such they really don't want you to leave their ecosystem: 301 redirects to the outside are verboten. Other methods are rather dodgy and carry frightened whispers of "bad SEO", "lost link juice", and other unverifiable witch-doctor terminology. Google's product forums even have shills spreading FUD about the very notion of making a clean break away from Blogger.
The redirections appear to be working... for now, but who knows if it'll last. And the more content I would've had before the switch, the bigger PITA this would've been. Moral of the story: if you're on Blogger or a service like it, and want to have some control over the content you produce, RUN TO THE HILLS. And sooner rather than later.
