The Gateway Page: I have at last, after contemplating the stats for last month, rationalised my blogs. For a moment I even considered closing the Gateway, but on due consideration, and after Thomas complained and Jim Belshaw revealed he was thinking of something Gateway for his own blog suite, I relented and simply redesigned the Gateway. The daily update entries won’t last forever though, being taken down at the end of each month. Similarly the Saturday stats. The monthly stats will appear here on New Lines from a Floating Life.
New Lines from a Floating Life now incorporates the old Oz Politics + Big Archive and Ninglun on Blogspot. First I used WordPress Import to suck up the Blogspot posts, which for the time being are still also on Blogspot. Then using Windows Live Writer I moved the pages from Oz Politics to New Lines. After that I attempted to do the export-import trick on Oz Politics, having deleted all the pages there, but found there was too much material. So I started culling, something long overdue, until I brought the total to be moved down to three meg. Then I started hoovering posts and transferring them to their new home.
There will be some cross-referencing issues, but I will address them gradually, beginning with the pages in their new home. Note the revised list of pages in the side bar.
I had noticed, too, that I was less inclined lately to rant about Australian politics. So when I am moved to, I can just as easily do it on the general blog. There is no need for a special one, as after all that was really a product of the 2007 elections.
Ninglun on Journalspace, which hardly anyone read any more, has
simply been deleted. I “undeleted” it for the sake of certain cross-references to it.
