Wow it took a full 8 days to change my mind about getting a pre-made blog engine instead of creating my own. As I said in the the “Take 2” post I was hoping to convert the old blog into Asp.Net MVC2 but realized that it would be at least one year before the site host would upgrade to .Net 4 so for now the new blog is on hold. The current blog is, as you properly can see, running blogengine.net which I quickly have grown fond of, it has everything, was easy to setup and you can use Windows Live Writer! Good stuff.
I have only copied the two last posts over from the old blog as the old posts about Prism (CompositeWPF at the time) are outdated, same goes for the word and visual studio add-ons.

Talk about getting off on the wrong food with this blog, 2 blog posts in 1 year was not really the plan! To my defense (who am I defending myself against?) life has been pretty hectic the last year, besides the university, work, moving , trying to keep up on everything that is new in the .Net world and having a social life, I basically just forgot all about the blog.
It was not until I heard Scott Hanselman at a presentation on VS2010, Asp.Net 4 and MVC 2 say something like “Everyone should blog, it is like having your brain indexed on the internet” that I got the blog urge back. Hopefully this time I will be a bit more persistence, I am hoping to write a blog post each week even if it is not developer minded and can be found elsewhere, just to get into the spite of having my brain indexed =). Also I will target a bit wider than initially planned, mostly because I run into problems outside of visual studio that should be worth writing home about, so tags tags tags tags and maybe some more sub categories should help on the sorting.
This blog could clearly use a good upgrade since it was made to test out linq to sql and lacks a lot of standard features. The plan is to convert it to Asp.net MVC2 at some point in 2010, I could of cause just switch to some premade blog engine or maybe just make an account at worldpress but as a developer it just seems cheesy even though it makes no “business sense” what so ever.
Quiet on set! danielvg blog take 2!
