Blog migration...

My previous Wordpress blog host has been shutdown, so it was time to move on. The logical choice seemed to be Wordpress.com, it was a direct import.

Unfortunately they don't make it easy to forward your subdomain, there's a $13/yr charge (which I was willing to pay), but they drop all "www" requests. That is where all my links point as well as links from other forums and blogs. Okay stop laughing, there is over four other blogs that link here ;)

Anyway, the next choice was Blogger/Blogspot, where we are now. It was super easy to point the domain here, GoDaddy which holds my domain even has a wizard to make the forward easy as 3.14159265...

Blogspot even take imports for XML, same as Wordpress exports! But not the same format as Wordpress (Finished: Sorry, the import failed due to a server error. The error code is bX-a9cw3d). A quick search pointed me to an article at Squidoo which then pointed to an XML conversion site Wordpress-to-Blogger. There was only a little massaging to be done, reporting and the re-addition of my About page (which needed updating anyway) and now we're here...
