…and I thought that was going to be my last blog entry…

Images As I sit here on a Friday night, wondering how long can it actually take to move my blog from Typepad to WordPress, I am reminded that anything worthwhile always takes longer than expected. As we coined on our first feature film ‘The Runner’, ‘it will take twice as long and cost twice as much…’

It really is a universal truth that is as relevant on a $100m movie as it is on a low budget film – it’s just that with low budget films, the pain can be more significant and personal.

Having said all that, it will be worth it as I am now working in WordPress and checking through the temp blogsite for errors. And I am loving the new look, the new navigation and the overall feel of the new blog.

Can’t wait to unveil it to the world!

    I moved a blog from blogger to WordPress. Than was fairly easy as blogger can just export the blog.

    The biggest problem I had was screen formatting, which I haven’t really figured out.

    You have a lot going on on your blog, Chris. So it could be quite a job getting it across and getting it looking exactly the same.

    The worst I guess is if you have to rebuild the blog one post at a time, when I first moved blog I lost all the dates and it looked like I created most of my blog in one day.

    Good luck with it all and see you at the BBQ, I’m running a little late as I was up watching movies on LoveFilm and I just watched the F1 qualifying.

    Hi Chris!

    The new site looks great. I hope your Typepad to WordPress move wasn’t too painful!

    As you know well, even smaller films involve a lot of teamwork and crew and heart to get right.
