Moved to WordPress

As reported on CNET et. al. Microsoft will be closing down Windows Live Spaces where I’ve kept my personal musings for a few years now. Microsoft has, however, made migrating a Live Space to WordPress.com a breeze that carries over most everything including posts, images, and categories no matter how old.

It’s a good platform and I’m looking forward to playing around with it. Definitely an improvement, which I’m sure is one reason Microsoft chose to focus their efforts on other projects and leave WordPress handle what it does best.

Picking a name wasn’t easy. When I signed up for Spaces, it was still beta so I could get the name I wanted easily. However, WordPress has been around for a long time so a lot of ideas were taken. I considered a few like “heathing” which my old doctor, mentor, Scout master, and friend used to say I was doing when whatever I was doing was otherwise undefined. Like other ideas, it looked word as a URL. Sorry, Doc.

So in honor of Monty Python – which I my wife just loves (not really) – I chose “lifeofheath”. Unfortunately squatters took several more reasonable names, but what can one do?

So while I continue to post work-related posts about deployment, Visual Studio, .NET and other such topics to http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths; here I’ll post things about what’s going in life with my family and me. It’s not the most exciting life, but I’ve got a wonderful wife, sweet daughter, and joyful (and not always annoying) dog that make it fun.
