Resurrecting my old blog

So I’ve decided to resurrect my old Base4 blog, where I used to talk about Base4.Net and Data 2.0 (aka the future of data).

My old blog was completely hand written using Base4.Net for the data layer, with crappy URLs like http://www.base4.net/blog.aspx?ID=67.

So moving it to wordpress is going to be interesting.

My current plan is pretty simple:

  1. Register a CName alias from blog.base4.net to surfacevalidity.wordpress.com
  2. Write a custom exporter to get the old blog posts out of Base4.net/blog.aspx
  3. Import into WordPress
  4. Attempt to tidyup the links.

Should be an interesting exercise.

As more of my old blog comes online, I’ll keep you posted.
