It is so much easier to fix things on Blogger and import posts from Blogger to WordPress, than to deal with WordPress. I think that’s kind of sad. But, I am pulling this site back together, from assorted parts which are here and there on my hard drive and stashed away online in places like Blogger (blogspot). So far the posts from Blogger are up and loaded with images, intact. I was not expecting it to be so easy.
I still have all the old WordPess back up files which I will have to play around with. WordPress will not like them as they are, they are big. I can export them as big files, but I can not import them back again as big files. Even though, they are the same files.
I am wishing myself luck, and patience.
I’ve been running this site, in one form or another, since 1998. At some point I bought this domain and since then it was known as Word Grrls. Ten or so years later that feels like an outdated name. But, I don’t want to keep blogging. I am looking at some new ideas. I spent most of this year trying new software, mostly other CMS’s. Eventually, I wound up loading up WordPress again (image files are all broken) just to give a home to what I have done in the past.
This is going to be here as an archive. I’m working on other sites, not blogs, so this one is going to be quiet while I discover where I go next.
My main site is laurabrown.ca
Follow along for the next adventure, using Movable Type on my new domain.
We will see how long it takes before I am missing Blogger. Easier to stick wtih the software you know but not as interesting as taking that step into the mysterious unknown.
