Rescue Old Blog

Two days ago, when I resurrected this blog, I thought I’d just start from scratch, leaving the 930+ old blog posts forever gone. Then I read how Amit moved from Squarespace to Hugo using the ExitWP tool to convert a Wordpress XML export to markdown files. I had an old export file lieing around and after just a few minutes with ExitWP I had 936 Markdown files, spanning 10 years (2003 — 2013) of my old blog content.

Many of the old links will be broken, no images or files made the transfer, but it’s actually great to see 10 years of my life re-appear.
