Replacing Movable Type with WordPress

I’ve now moved my two main sites across. It took a bit of doing and some of the areas still need work. I’m not sure why I waited so long.

WordPress took a while to get my head round but it is far more adaptable and takes a lot less effort to understand than Movable Type.

The most immediate improvement is that I’ve seen a rise in traffic on Chasing Wheels. The bounce rate has much improved and people are clicking through to pages far more frequently.

The information that I needed to make the leap was pretty findable and, by and large, worked in exactly the way it said it would. There seems to be much more you can achieve with WordPress without having to know code or get under the hood – for examples themes, plugins and layouts can all be done without FTP or having to stare at code.

I’m going to try and make more of an effort to blog regularly here, mainly about fashion, social media and my work.
