WordPress to Gemini
I was surprised by the response in the poll about [which link mode would feel the most natural for Gemini?], there were several options and to put links at the end of the article was almost the least popular answer.
Some time ago I've started to organize my articles in the same way. I had been adding links in the Gopher style, with numbering them like , , , ..., [n], and puting the index of links at the end of the article. But then Przemek said, that he had an idea to put descriptions of the links, instead of their occurrence number. And I liked that idea. It's better when we can read an article without looking at the links, and after that to look at the index of every link with their description. So we can process an article, or an index in a separate way.
This whole thing reminded me that I have been thinking about migrating my WordPress blog to the Geminispace. I was even writing some script to migrate XML export on my own. But as I've seen (the obvious thing) that there is [a script for migrating from Markdown to Gemtext]. So I also found (the second obvious thing) that there is [a script for migrating from WordPress to Markdown].
So I don't have to write a script on my own. I don't migrate at this moment, but I'm getting closer to this decision. Probably I would move my Polish blog here, rather than only duplicate it.
