I had set up a CNAME redirect so that my Postach.io blog would show up at thoughts.jeffreykishner.com. I am glad I chose to do that, because I can maintain the same permalinks while hosting these posts on my own server. However I still have to migrate the posts before Postach.io archives them.
Here are the steps I am taking:
thoughtsfor jeffreykishner.com via cPanel, so that I can upload new HTML files to
public_html/thoughtsand have them show up at thoughts.jeffreykishner.com after I remove the DNS settings.
thoughtsby SSHing into my server. (You can also do this via FTP).
chmod 755 ./post/to make it readable.
.html, so I have to create a directory just for the post, and then upload
index.htmlinto that directory. In the case of this link: http://thoughts.jeffreykishner.com/post/leaving-postach-io-get-my-new-rss-feed I have to make a directory called
******is the username for my server.
Unfortunately, I cannot test how the uploaded HTML file looks until I delete the CNAME redirect in my DNS settings, but theoretically (after I follow all these steps for all of my Postach.io blog posts) all my old permalinks will work just fine.
If I dragged an image into Evernote and then blogged it, Postach.io uploaded it to an Amazon S3 bucket:
I can only assume that they will delete images of archived blogs, so in these instances I need to find the post in Evernote, choose “inspect element” over the uploaded image, and grab the image URL, which would look something like this:
As long as I keep this note shared, I assume that I can “hotlink” to the image URL. If not, I can just upload the original image to Dropbox, make it shareable, and use that URL instead.
