the brook @ yavin4, anew

Welcome to my new space. I wanted to move to WordPress for a long time, and its finally happened. Questions, you have?

Why I moved

  1. Blogger was becoming way too clunky, even for its normal operations
  2. I wanted more features (categories, comment RSS, total customization
  3. I was going to buy web hosting anyway for a proper photoblog (which will hopefully be up soon)

Logistics

  1. The new URL (which, of course you can see if you’re here) is http://yavin4.anshul.info/. Please update your bookmarks.
  2. If you were using RSS to read my blog, most likely, you won’t have to change it, since I was using Feedburner for generating RSS which now directs the feed here. However, if you subscribe using the (older) blogger feed, please change your feed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/thebrook
  3. Sorry for the trouble!

Design

  1. I based the design of this blog on the Dawn WP theme by Fredrik Fahlstad. I made a few changes however, in terms of sidebar size and of course, header images etc.
  2. The (rather flattering) portrait photograph of mine was taken by Ashwin. Just shows what a good photographer with a good camera can do. Even I don’t recognize myself.
  3. The header photograph was taken in Coorg, Karnataka. I edited it (including the title etching) using GIMP.

Feel free to let me know what you think about the new blog. Cheers!

    Ashwin… URLs updated. I saw the film one (in color right?) but I still prefer this :D

    Avyakt… thanks. Your email ID should be stored in a cookie so you don’t need to type it everytime. And in any case, isn’t it better than not having to type a random word displayed in some image? ;)
