Blog Migration - Part 2 - Temporary Pages

November 22, 2009

Previously : Part 1 - Setting up

After getting my self my little virtual corner on the webospere,  it was time to get some content up before getting all the final sites up.

Steps:

  1. “No 404 for me”
A small "Under construction" [page](http://demos.erikzaadi.com/misc/firstRoot/) ,with a typical 90's under construction gif look
  1. Linking my existing (sub)sites: I added two CNAME records:
Blogger Account  : http://blogger.erikzaadi.com =>
http://erikzaadi.blogspot.com

Project Pages : http://projects.erikzaadi.com =>
http://erikzaadi.github.com
  1. Setting up the root of the site:
I started to throw together a small asp.net mvc project for the [root](http://demos.erikzaadi.com/firstMVCRoot) of the site, both to test the hosting server's MVC and DB capabilities.  

Besides overdoing the grey gradient theme to death, I think I exaggerated a bit with the fly thing at the [404](http://demos.erikzaadi.com/firstMVCRoot/NonExistingURL) and [ErroraPage](http://demos.erikzaadi.com/firstMVCRoot/Home/ThrowOne).
  1. Getting the blog working
I installed [AtomSite](http://atomsite.net) on http://blog.erikzaadi.com and started playing around a bit with the theme.  

Again, as you can see, I'm still with the grey gradient look (will I ever grow tired of it?).

Stick around for the next post, which will be about migrating my blogger posts into the AtomSite powered blog.

Cherios, Erik
