Backdated Content 75% complete

I was able to migrate over the basic text of content from several previous blogs.  I now have most of it published again and available.  Still on the to-so list:

  1. Manually bring over some content that did not migrate for some reason. (UPDATE 11/24/2015: COMPLETE!  Some still unpublished due to rigorous cleanup.)
  2. Fix a bunch of images that didn’t migrate over correctly (UPDATE 11/27/2015: 95% COMPLETE! Some photos still missing and posts may be deleted.)
  3. Correct image file names because I am OCD about such things.
  4. Updated ALT tags and image metadata, also for OCD reasons.  Plus, 508 compliance is nice.
  5. Fix a bunch of broken BBCODE tags and HTML tags.
  6. Find and re-upload a bunch of images and media that did not get picked up.
  7. Go back and proofread all posts for broken links and content that may have moved or no longer be available.

Why Bother?  I don’t know that I have a great answer to that question.  I really just wanted to brush up on my web CMS and WordPress skills and try to be a little more in-touch with the programming involved, especially data migration.

I also figured that there are still a lot of links and references that point back to many of my old blogs and posts so I might as well leave them up for posterity.  Someone may want to reference some of them.  I admit that a lot of them are personal topics and there are a lot of outdated announcements from past projects that probably aren’t useful anymore.  There are, however, some old posts that actually have some useful content or good references that I occasionally find useful myself so I thought maybe let the interwebs have them back in case someone else finds them useful as well.
