Movable Type FTW

That was almost too easy.  A few hours after I posted Blogger was shutting down FTP publishing, I started looking for blogging software that supported sqlite and importing from Blogger.

No more than 20 minutes after I downloaded MT I had my entire blog imported from Blogger. This plugin connects over the Blogger API and grabs your entire blog and all metadata, including comments.  The only thing it got wrong were the timestamps of my blog entries, but sqlite made short work of that:

update mt_entry set entry_authored_on = datetime(entry_authored_on,'-8 hour');
I'm loving this!  I wish I had switched over a long time ago.  I'm gonna miss that old theme though, I had been using it for 8 years.

Thanks for the kick in the pants Blogger!
