About a year ago, Posterous was acquired by Twitter. A month ago, it was announced that it will be completely shut down by April 30th. I’ll spare you my rant about how the awesome customer service that characterized Posterous pre-acquisition completely disappeared after the acquisition :)
On a more practical note, Posterous’ closing meant finding a new place to host my blogs. There are many options (you can find many of them described in the posthaven.com migration guide), but I decided to go the DIY way and move my blogs to Octopress, hosted on GitHub Pages.
I’ll post shortly a guide on how I did the migration, but for now I just want to post a first “Welcome” message here. If you are reading this message, you are in the correct place, whether it’s the website or the RSS feed (I updated my FeedBurner feed to point to the new site, so if you are subscribed to it, you shouldn’t have to do anything). All the old contents has been migrated, and links to my blog posts should work unchanged.
There are still a few rough edges (some pages are still in the old site theme), I’m still working on the migration of some parts of the site. Please let me know if you find anything broken.
