I’m giving as much advance warning as I can. With this switch to WordPress, some features that are blogger specific won’t work anymore. I don’t know if those of you who follow via blogger, will still be following. So if that is your means of reaching my blog, you might want to be sure you have me book-marked elsewhere. My URL is not changing. So if that’s how you have my saved wherever you have me saved, that will still work.
Some of the things you are use to seeing will have to be rebuilt. Some are blogger specific widgets. I am going to try for the WordPress equivalent, but we’ll see if that works out. Some of them I can rebuild once links are shifted over. I honestly have no idea what will be broken and what will work. Some things will carry over in a different way. Don’t know don’t know.
I’m sure I’ll have lots of broken links throughout where I have linked to myself. Hard links will break. I’m going to fix those as I can. I’m getting to the point where there is only so much i can build in advance. Since I’m sitting on a temp URL anything I build within it is a temp link. And there is no point in linking up temp links.
So I think I’m getting to where I’m just going to toss everything up and see where it lands.
I will not delete this blog off of blogger until everything is fixed. I’ll export posts, import to WP. I’ll switch my domain from pointing to blogger to start pointing to WP. But everything will remain on blogger, just with the blogger URL, until I push the delete button. And I won’t do that until I’m content WP is working properly.
So things might get a little weird in the next week or two. Building is faster than expected. Probably because I’m not going fancy, at least not yet, and I’ve built this damn site so many times before. I just have to find my way around wordpress.
It would be awesome if WP would elt me import my blog. That is the biggest holdup. But I’ve given my tech guy full access to this blog and he had access to the WP already, so I’m leaving that in his capable hands. Because it isn’t working for me at all. Hopefully soon. But he’s got much on his plate and I don’t even want to be top priority.
