Welcome to the new Sabernomics

Well, I threatened to do it, and now it’s done. I’ve converted the blog over to Word Press. It was a bit of trouble, but really not all that bad. Right now things are in a bit of disarray as I try and get everything working. You may notice some dead links, missing material, etc.; but, hopefully everything will be up and running soon.

I would like to add that I don’t wish to use this as an opportunity to trash Blogger. In fact, leaving Blogger was kind of like selling my first car. I bought the best thing I could afford at the time, but as I got older I needed something a little bigger and more comfortable. It served me well while I used it and I sometimes miss it. I whole-heartedly recommend Blogger to anyone wanting to start a blog. If it were not for the ease of start-up, I never would have started. And the clunkiness was actually a good thing as it forced me to learn a lot about HTML, CSS, and many web tools.

I’m very impressed with the Word Press software so far. It’s easy to use and powerful.

    I like Sabernomics either way. It’s all about the writer and the content. That said, the new digs look good, too.

    Thanks for all the kind words! I’m still working out some kinks, but things seem to be running smoothly now. I should get back to working on content now. 🙂

    Wow, it had been a while since Sabernomics showed up in my Newsgator, and now I see why, you moved!

    Good stuff, looks real good. Incidentally, if you take this post and replace WordPress for Typepad, it would be my same sentiments as well.

    I do sorta miss the Braves hat at the top though…
