Dorky post about my web site technical issues…

Yikes, my comment spam is out of control! I’m looking for ways to streamline the back end management for this site since right now I just don’t have the time to deal with all the technical issues…I just want to talk about bags! Right now I drowning in comment/email spam and need to make a million technical improvements, but don’t have the time or interest to do all the trouble shooting. I have a million bag related posts I want to make but as soon as I open up Moveable Type and see all the spam and my buggy HTML my brain just goes BLAAAHHH and I surf on to another site.

WordPress looks interesting, but after aprox 8 years as an Moveable Type user I just don’t think I can teach myself a whole new blogging system. I’m thinking of migrating The Bag Blog over to Typepad which yes you have to pay for, but I really like the idea of having someone else take care of all the technical issues and deal with all the comment spam prevention etc

I’ve always been really proud of the fact that I handled both the technical and creative side of all my web sites, but at this point I give up and need some help! Any other bloggers about there that have found a good solution to this issue? Let me know: saralovering AT gmail DOT com

  1. I’ve just made the move from Typepad to WordPress, which I’ve been putting off for ages because it looks too technical, and I love it – it’s been far easier than I thought it would be. I use Hostgator and I set it up in minutes (email aswell). Though I’m no expert feel free to email me if you need a quick run through guide.

    Love the blog, BTW!
