Movable Type

Well, lately MT has been really slow when I save a new blog entry. I remember when I first signed up for MT that someone said that once I get up around a certain number of entries that the program will really slow down. Well if you combine all three sites and the photoblog, I have 2771 entries – I wonder if it’s time to move to another blogging software.

Sadly, if I go to something more powerful I’ll have to pay for it (whether it’s an upgrade on MT or switching to Expression Engine). For now I’ll just tolerate the slow-speed of rebuilding, but once it gets truly intolerable I’ll revisit the possibilities.

My Signature


  1. I highly recommend EE – it’s easy to install and use. If you were to switch you hosting to pMachine Hosting, they will install it for you.

  2. I don’t need to change my hosting service – they are an excellent group of folks and I have had very few problems with them (and usually any problems I have are NOT due to my hosting service).

  3. If you ever want to play with EE, send me an email and I will give you one of our hosted demos to tinker with just to see if you like it.

    Very nice idea with the comments on the side of the page, I might have to borrow it when I redesign my own site.
