Ok, so importing the existing posts from posterous worked smoothly. That’s nice.

I’ve signed up for a disqus account and enabled comments. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I don’t like generating “footprints” across a bunch of third-party sites as I navigate the web, and I take steps in my browser to avoid doing so. So requiring readers of my blog (all 3 of them) to download from a third-party in order to see my blog, let alone actually comment on it, seems really hypocritical. Not only that, but my previous reliance on third-parties like, oh, say posterous has not always ended well. The paranoid in me really objects to giving control over to a third party. If only they didn’t make it so damn easy!
