Transferring old Yahoo360 Blog to Blogger

Yep, I got really bored of bloggin in Yahoo360. Here's the old link.

Why did I change?
  • OK, Yahoo360 allowed you to create a private blog - but it didn't create a public feed - bit of a pain of readers (Simon & Roger).
  • I discovered Performancing plug-in for Firefox. (I guess it makes Firefox like Flock (still in beta). Basically, when browsing a page, hit F8 and immediately post a comment about the page you are browsing to your blog. Nice!
