After two years hiatus, I’m blogging again. Not that I’ve been doing nothing at all, having invested endless hours into CRM Wiki and witnessing the birth of CRM Field Guide. But it’s good to be back.
To celebrate this occasion, I’m changing the delivery van from BlogEngine.NET to a mighty FunnelWeb. Why, you may ask? I simply felt like a change and could not pass something described as “built by developers for developers” or “the blog engine of real developers”. I did briefly contemplate a no-brainer but then noticed the general migration pattern even if you ask explicitly to move from FunnelWeb to WordPress. So why the FunnelWeb? In addition to all the reasons othershavelisted, how about:
Awesome code base. I accept that I will never be able to get my head around some of the concepts used but it does not stop me from admiring the results, similar to lifting the bonnet on my car and drooling. Though I am adding a washer fluid when required.
Continuing on the codebase – I wanted to see how to create something with MVC 4 and beyond. Perfect vehicle for that.
Since I was away, Feedburner has been acquired by Google. Not to worry, I claim my feed and be done, right? Enter details, Next. Kaboom, 404 Not Found.What? Two years too late. Arghhh. Back to work, recreate the feed, still need to fix links on my blog.
So you have it, theme aside (I will attend to it at some point), we are back at ground zero.
There is one important change: blog URL no longer has CRM as part of it. That does not mean that I’m no longer interested in CRM, on the contrary. What it means is that I’m going to add to the mix my [sometimes quite funny] remarks on all the things around. If you don’t like it, just filter by tags but you never know what you’re going to miss out on!
