moving...

Hi everyone!!


I am moving! Well, sort of...

I have decided to move my blog over to a new site.

At this point, I am not sure what will happen to this blog. I may continue to blog here when I travel, which was the original purpose of this blog, but for now I will be doing all of my blogging over at my new blog and I won't be checking comments anymore on this blog.

So stop on by and check out my new blog (same name): shave ice & gelato ~ (part 2).

Hi Girasoli, wow I just checked out your new site, it looks great. How did you transfer everything so fast. I think wordpress is better than blogger and I was thinking of doing the same but am so afraid I would make a mistake and lose my content in the process.

Great job! I'm looking forward to visiting you on your new site.

Hi Kathy,

Sorry it took so long to reply. It was really easy to transfer. You go to the import/export page - not sure where it is on blogger. You export your blog (it all compresses to one txt or xml type document). I did not think that the photos would transfer but they all did which was nice! The links didn't though, so it is taking me a while to re-link them all. Also, the formatting is off a little. The comments do transfer though which was another great thing!

I did try to also import into blogger for an archive backup since I wanted to delete a few of my older posts BUT am having more difficulty getting it to transfer into blogger. WordPress though was easy! It didn't take me very long to learn the ins and outs of WordPress. I love how easy it is to import photos and edit posts.

Hope this helps! Send me an email if you have more questions.

HI Girasoli,

Thanks so much for the information. I think I'll try to do it with my test blog first. I'm just afraid I'll zap it all out and lose my info. Maybe I'll try to back up my blogger information first. :)

Thanks again for taking the time to provide me with the instructions.

Hi Girasoli, thanks so much for the reply. I'm not sure if I'll be brave enough to try it on my main blog. I did something once (not even sure what I did), and suddenly I lost photos on a bunch of old posts. I'm still going through to replace them all. :)

Thanks for the info and offer to answer questions. May have to take you up on that. :) Have a great weekend.
