Ch-ch-ch-changes

I have been writing this blog since 2007. Originally, I hosted it on Blogger. Then I moved it to a self-hosted WordPress site because that was all the rage. Now that I write far less often, I’m interested in a free platform, which is why I’m returning to Blogger. Don’t even ask me how much I wish I had just stayed there.

Answer: a lot.

So. I don’t have any idea how many of y’all still read here. And of you readers, I don’t know how many of you subscribe via email or via reader. Any of you who are subscribed will likely have to resubscribe at the new site.

I will be publishing this post and then I will be redirecting my URL back to blogspot. So, if you are reading this and are interested in making sure you continue to get my oh-so-stellar content, look in the right sidebar and enter your email if you want posts emailed to you or click the button that says “subscribe in a reader” (for reader or email).

Caveat: I don’t know if older posts will get sent to subscribers as I add them back to the website. I suspect not because they will be backdated, but I am just warning you that this a thing that might happen.

I intend to eventually make sure all of my content is in one place over on Blogger, but until then, you might not be able to find it all. Also, I’m sure that Google searching for said content will be unreliable due to my content being all over tarnation and whatnot.

For now, you will be able to see all 2018 posts at Stimeyland and hopefully the older ones will eventually show up.

Wish me luck, guys. I am sure that I will regret this about ten minutes after I do it, but I want to be in a situation where I don’t have to pay for hosting every month if I’m not blogging. (Note: I am not giving up blogging. I just know that eventually I will and I want to prepare now when I still have enough energy to care.)

I’ve been kinda avoiding writing until I get this done, so I’m pushing the button, jumping off the board, hurling myself out of the plane! I pretty much always fuck up even the simplest blog tech stuff, so stay tuned for the disaster story. Wish me luck!

  1. Wait wait wait I know very little on this topic and I am sure you have already thought of this but on the small chance that (1) you have not AND (2) it would work—could you switch more easily to a free non-self-hosted WordPress blog? Or no? I insist that you forgive me if this is a dumb and/or obvious idea. I INSIST.

    • Sooooo not dumb or obnoxious. I thought of that, but with either Blogger or free WordPress there is an importing images issue. So it is actually not all that much easier either way—as far as I can tell, which could be completely wrong. The whole thing is dumb and obnoxious. :)
