I’ve outgrown what my WordPress.com account can offer. Turns out I want to play with widgets and scripts and such, go figure. But I like the WordPress environment so I visited wordpress.org and downloaded and installed v.2 and imported, successfully, my posts from this blog.
So far, so good. I’ve got a long way to go to figure out themes and PHP but now I can experiment with my own installations – how dangerously exciting!
Here is the new URL and feed for my account out of my domain – www.whitemountaintech.net
New blog URL – http://edventures.whitemountaintech.net
New blog feed – http://www.whitemountaintech.net/wordpress/feed/
I’ve also tweaked the blog a bit to include the following plug-ins:
podPress – a podcasting encapsulation plug-in
Just a note, I plan on leaving this up until WordPress decides to deep six it so any links that currently point here will not break. But if you do find this blog, please visit my new home and link to these posts there.
No sooner had I received the feed for Will Richardson’s post on his excitement over the first delivery of his newly published book then I ordered my own copy.
I have just cracked it open but I am excited about its prospects, particularly since I am working on a culminative project for my M.Ed. which is the development of a graduate level course in current EdTech tools. Between Will’s book, and the syllabi posted by Ulises Mejias in his Social Software Affordances course and Terry Anderson in his Emerging Issues in Educational Technology course, I am excited to start diving into the course’s creation.
Congratulations Will, and thanks!
