Whew… Moving anything tends to suck, but moving a blog is, IMHO, right up there with moving to a new house or moving a cactus.
Well, this is it, I am done with good old Blogger. To tell the truth, I knew I needed to move this blog a few months ago but I knew that it was going to be a big job so, I did what any human being would do, I procrastinated. If there is anything that I have learned in my relatively short life, it is that procrastination only lasts until the unpleasant task you are avoiding become less unpleasant than the situation you are currently in. It had finally gotten to the point when moving 319 pages BY HAND from one system to another was easier than dealing with Blogger for ONE MORE DAY. That says alot about how difficult Blogger has gotten.
I have been modifying WordPress for my other sites and clients for about a year now. I was thoroughly impressed with how easy it was to manipulate and add on to.
Probably about half of you saw I was building a new blog for the past few weeks (Thank you, Technorati Tattle Tale). I want to make a shout out to Patrick at Bifurcated CarrotsÂ for alerting me to the Technorati issue and Kathy at Cold Climate Gardening for all her great WordPress tips.
You may notice that the comments are missing from the old posts. Never fear, I will be slowly adding those back in over the next few weeks. The fact of the matter is that my posts are only are half complete without all of the comments you guys leave. Thanks to everybody who stops by. Hopefully we will all enjoy this new format for This Garden Is Illegal.
