Catgirl Moving, but not today

. Wednesday, September 02, 2009

I Love Blogger/Google as their stuff is easy to use and it just works, unfortunately, I don't have enough control over the back end(which is probably *why* it works). I had some plans for Catgirl Meowing when I came up with the idea this summer.

I wanted a blog, but more interactive...Kinda like a blog + knowledge portal + Intelligent social networking I have some of the pieces her - you can see what I'm reading - books, news articles, Interesting sites I've bookmarked, etc. but only a few of 5, and everything is on one main page.

I have to lay out the graphics and "more" links by hand which takes forever, then I have to go back and edit the auto generated tags as they are not quite right...not to mention how many times I had to tweek this template/CSS sheet, had to give up on my "Ask the catgirl" feature, imaginary gawds only know what happened to my streaming radio player, and I have a million call outs to web services, which are starting to make the site take forever to load.

Which is why I'm experimenting with hosted solutions like Wordpress or 2bEvolution, that support things like multiple pages (*gasp*) breaking my kitty vision into bite size pieces.

Like I said, it's going to be awhile before the move is offical, and the test site is going to change a bajillion times just like this one did back in July, but if you want a sneak peek--
