Managing 15 years of blog content

Moving 15 years of blog content to Jekyll and Markdown files is surprisingly difficult. My blog first ran on .Text, then WordPress, then Squarespace. Each step along the way was a full migration. No content lost.

Now I’m in Jekyll and trying to get links working and validated in posts. And the media files, oh what a mess. 😫 Progress is made but it is slow and even with extensive scripting skills there is still much to do manually. It feels like I’ll be in a good spot when done, but it’s a lot more than I planned.
