As you know, this blog is hosted @ Blogspot. It's a good platform for newbies, but if you need more control over your blog, it's not the right option.
I've always wanted to switch to Wordpress with a self-hosted domain. I know WordPress gives me a lot more power than Blogger. I've seen many of my friends switch over to their own domain from a free hosting platform, once their blog has gained momentum. I've done the same.
Henceforth, shankarthetechie.blogspot.com will not be updated.
I've moved to www.blog.shankarganesh.com and this blog will live there forever, I hope so.
As for the RSS Feed, there's no change and it will be available as usual at feeds.feedburner.com/shankarstechblog
Thanks to Srinivasan Paul Joseph of Isha Technologies for sponsoring me the site.
Hope you all give the blog your continued support. And please spare some time to update your blogrolls if you've provided me a link. :-)
