Welcome To My New Digs!

Thanks for stopping by! I've recently moved my blog from Edublogs to here. You can see this post for the reasons for my move. Moving all of my posts and their related comments was relatively easy. The Wordpress2Blogger site has instructions and a converter. It talks about WXR files, but I found that it was able to deal with the Wordpress XML file that I exported from Edublogs. However, any links I had to my own posts appear to be a little messed up. I'm also getting some weird text showing up with many of my images. So it is a slow process right now as I go through all my posts and fix these issues.

If you've moved your blog before, why did you do it and how did the process go? What are the strengths and weaknesses of your current blogging platform?


  1. Hi Carolyn,
    I like your blog style - creative but nice straightforward writing. Makes me jealous ;-)
    Thanks for your Tweet. Looking forward to learning with you.

  2. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your kind comment. Looking forward to the FO2010 adventure!

  3. Hello! Consider this my housewarming comment for your new digs! Wow! You have definitely gone up a notch in terms of tech-i-ness as a result of the move! I understand about the ads on edublogs, I don't like them either. And the new design of this blog looks great! Change is good in all aspects of life...good look in this space!

  4. Hi Errin,
    Thanks for the blog-warming comment ;-) Yes, sometimes change in and of itself is a good thing.
