Moving around

It has been a long time since I planned to move from Blogger. Blogger offers a simple service with the basic tools to start blogging. But as time passes by you realize that you need more tools to improve the blog or to simplify your work.

Most of the tools you find surfing the web. Some are third party services and you start to distribute around your data. Images are stored in Picasa Web. Files can be stored in your Dropbox account. Static pages can be stored at Google Sites. When you have a small blog, that is ok. But when things start growing, controlling all this mess is difficult.

Then I started thinking who was really the owner of the information: me or Blogger? If can't do what a want to, probably I'm not the owner. The migration to a new host proved this. Blogger offers you a way to export your data, but there isn't a way to redirect visitors to the new address. According to Blogger you just have to loose them... Some people offers a javascript redirection, but this won't work with search engines. The correct redirection should return an http 301.

From now on, both my website and blog will be available at http://www.quites.com.br. Feed subscribers shouldn't have problems as FeedBurner will redirect you to the new feed.

If you find a problem with the new site, please contact me.
