Automattic has always been very proud of its WordPress.com VIP service, but now it seems that some people can outgrow the limitations of the more liberal WordPress.com VIP service as Robert Scoble looks to move his blog to the self-hosted WordPress.org software. Though it looks like moving from WordPress.com VIP to WordPress.org isn’t as easy as other transitions.
Just some ideas as I continue working to rebuild my blog. Regarding that, we’re moving my blog over this week to a Rackspace hosted server (hopefully, we had some problems figuring out some problems due to some custom stuff that Automattic did for my WordPress.com-based blog that you’re reading here). I’ll stay on WordPress, but will be on a standard install which will let me use all sorts of plugins and try some fun things out. As soon as that gets moved over we’ll start iterating on the design and “pave the paths” here.
