compulsory self-congratulatory post

woo, yay, etc.

I’m surprised by how much I’m missing the ugly blue navbar at the top of my blog. It was such a convenient way to get to my admin pages, not to mention surf to random blogs in languages I do not speak.

(Yes, it’s entirely my own fault I can’t read Spanish or Gujarati. Yes, it’s lovely that wordpress.com is such a multilingual community. But the lack of a language filter did render the ‘next blog’ feature rather pointless for monoglots.)

At least I am not bothered by the brokenness of stats, seeing as how I never look at the things — I cared about stats, too, when I first started blogging, but it soon gets old — and am rapidly adjusting to being logged out every time I switch pages. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my perambulations around the blog hosts, it’s that free stuff doesn’t always work properly. Quite a lot of the time paid stuff doesn’t work properly either. And if this blog was really important to me I wouldn’t be hosting it here anyway.

That reminds me though: time I took a backup. Apologies to anyone subscribed to my RSS feed who is about to be engulfed by every entry I’ve posted ever. Until this place emerges from the primeval ooze into a golden age of data portability, this is the way it has to be done.

    It’s “Gujarati”. My blog’s at blogspot and I hate their version of ‘blogambulator’ too🙂

    I swear that was a typo, and not a misspelling. Fixed now.
