I'm really not happy about my blog.
I am not talking about the writing. I'm not talking about the visitors. I'm talking about the change.
For months I've been trying to switch over from Blogger to WordPress. First there was an exporting problem which I could not seem to overcome. Ruckiry (not Jon's boss) I had months off where I could take my sweet fucking time to copy/paste each and every single entry to the new format.
I picked a new template. I made categories. I got the frickin' archieves back!!! I double posted everything so it was up to date. The new look is clean, it's neat and I really like it. ...and yet there it sits.....unactivated.
WordPress isn't great at redirecting a site like Blogger can do. That is its one big flaw. I can't seem to find a way to do this. Denton thought he did last night. In one iteration he got it to go with no pictures - frick! Then they were there but without my URL, which is paid-up for the next two years. And the really odd thing is - each time I tried to pull up my URL on my laptop, I got the old Blogger version. What's up with that???
I tried Safari. I tried Mozilla. I did not try IE. Still it came up with the old template...as I sat and watched Denton pull up the new one on his laptop.
To not screw too much up with my blog, we put the old version back on and will try try again.
I just want it to be over.
If anyone has lived through this - I'd willingly take some advice.
