Perhaps "abandon ship" is putting it a bit too strongly, but...
Since I found Wordpress to be so dynamic when creating a blog-as-website last fall for the final project in my historic preservation course, I recently decided to start building the blog/site for my Div III/thesis over there. It's still got a lot of blanks to be filled and isn't quite done, but it's coming together! Which is good, because the final meeting for my Div III - when they determine if I've passed or failed - is coming up in all of nine days.
I may still use this particular blog for things, and I find that my google/blogger account is very useful, so it won't be a full disappearing act by any means. But all the exciting Div III historical clothing research, and the things I've been sewing and will sew, and my massive annotated bibliography (actually useful, I promise!) are all over at bygoneglamour.wordpress.com now.
I'll try to remember to announce here when the site is fully presentable, in a week or so, but it will never be "complete" - part of the point is that I'm setting up something that will be easy for me to keep using in the future. I hope you'll visit, if you've found your way here.
