Photographers using the now unsupported OneReaction photoblog software have an option to export their images, descriptions and comments to PixyBlog. Jacques Bron has written and in-depth article on how users of OneReaction can export their data in a format which PixyBlog can easily import. His own photoblog was exported using this same method, which we reported on earlier.
The article is well written and due to the attention to technical details, it could also be useful for others wanting to export their photos to PixyBlog; even if you're using different software. The article is over on Jacques blog, and has the rather techy title:
As always, if you're interested in moving your photos to PixyBlog and have any questions, just let us know.
Some of you may have noticed the presence of longtime photoblogger, John Washington on PixyBlog over the last few weeks. He appeared in the top-spot our Hall-of-Fame Photos and also made an impact on our Hot Photoblogs rankings. So it wouldn't have taken a genius to guess that he might well be in the process of migrating to PixyBlog. He is. He has.
So another big PixyBlog welcome to John Washington. Along with all the other migrations we've been working on lately, John is not only the latest but the largest. With over 600 photos going back to 2005, he has a huge portfolio of work, an established website and an army of readers/subscribers.
John has essentially been involved with PixyBlog since the beginning, and although he continued to blog on his PixelPost site for the past two years, it was always our intention that John be the first PixelPost import. That didn't quite happen, but it's great to finally have John as part of the community.
We migrated John's highly customized PixelPost site, which was a Frankenstein creation of two PixelPost instances running side-by-side. One instance powered his photoblog, while another was used to separate his projects from his photoblog. Over the years he had continually developed his own customized theme which also needed to be migrated.
It took us a few weeks, but finally at the weekend we managed to swap John's site over to use PixyBlog. We changed his domain name yesterday and now his site is live and currently number one in the days Hot Photoblogs.
Do you have a Pixel Post site which you are having trouble maintaining?
Are you having problems getting support from your hosting company?
Need a secure place to back-up your photos?
Have a photoblog but no community?
Any of these could be a reason for migrating your photoblog to PixyBlog. We've now made it easier than ever for Pixel Post users to export their photos, descriptions and comments to PixyBlog. With our new Pixel Post addon you can have your existing photoblog migrated to PixyBlog in just minutes.
