Porting blog posts and comments into Drupal

26 June 2011 - 8:12pm -- Joseph

I'm trying to work out how to port the content of an existing blog (this one) into Drupal. The problem I have is that this blog isn't currently running on an established blogging platform (Blogger, Wordpress, Moveable type, etc...) that someone may have written an import module for. Rather this blog is run on a MySQL and php monstrosity I hacked together myself some years ago.

I guess the good news is that I understand the structure of the existing data and have complete control over it.

The bad news is that I'm not sure how how to do it.

I'm not bitter, but...

Eto'o no go for Premier League

Ever since our time in Cameroon, I've watched Samuel Eto'o's career with interest (I also wrote a Web Design exercise based around his Wikipedia entry, so I know more about his career than is strictly required...)

There's been persistent rumours about him coming to the Premier League for a few years, and I've loved to have him over here (even if it was Man. City...) but sadly he's finally made a move and it's to Italy.

Humph...

If running a marathon has taught me anything (apart from "don't run marathons"), it's taught me that definite goals with set deadlines are a good way of getting things done. In fact, they seem to be the only way I get anything done (if you don't count stuff that my wife organises for me).

All very obvious you might think. I've always shied away from setting myself deadlines and targets where creative projects are concerned though, because of some misplaced idea that it restricts the creative juices and also that it just wasn't very cool.
