Major blog overhaul is coming. Yeah, I know I keep saying it, but this time it's true. I swear.
When I updated from my old url to blobbysblog.com, I pretty much lost all my archived posts. I have them, but they didn't publish and I never got around to reloading them.
Two days ago when the old version of Blogger wouldn't let me log in anymore, I was forced to sign up for Blogger
So, I'm leaving Blogger. I'm hopping over to Word Press as my blog editor of choice. There is just one MAJOR hitch: importing.
Had I attempted to move this blog to Word Press just a day or two earlier, it would have been somewhat of a breeze. Posts, links and comments would have come through automatically. However no images would have transferred. As it turns out it didn't matter. After having to update to the new version of Blogger, I found out Word Press cannot import anything from Blogger Beta at all. Frick!
So I am copying each and every post from Blogger - individually - and pasting it into Word Press. But to keep the integrity of the original blog, I then have to re-time stamp/date the posts so they are like they were always there. I've already updated 2003, 2004, half of 2005 and all of 2007. The bulk of my posts were 2006, so I have a few more days to go in completing this task. After that's done, then I can export them to my url. To my readership, it will be seamless. I hope.
This is a painful process - and I'm not really talking about the copy/paste functions. I am forced to look at every single one of my entries again. It's all I can do to not edit edit edit.
In its early stages the blog was
At first, I wasn't sure of my blog-style: not quite essay. not quite diary. not quite one-liners. It's still 'stuff & nonsense' - and I don't see that changing. But the quality of the writing has gotten somewhat better. It's better than a Fabio penned novel, but not as good as a Marisa de los Santos one. G-d willing - I'll get there!
Within the next week, I plan to have a new look - and one that doesn't involve bigger boobies.
