Welcome Again

Hello, hello! I've been thinking about moving into Blogger for some time as it was getting a little expensive maintaining a domain and server space. It also looks like Blogger has enhanced its functions since the last time I used it. So all in all, it's a pretty good move.

I could only transfer 40+ blog posts over because the xml import/export between platforms does not seem to work as well. So I had to manually repost each post, which is a right pain in the butt. I have to pretty much archive most of the older articles in an xml format until I can figure out how to move them over to Blogger.

That's just some of the technical difficulties. I also had to transfer my photos from my previous web space to Google's photo directory so that wasn't fun. I spent a good part of yesterday just working out all the kinks.

Coming back to Blogger seems familiar. After all, I did start with Blogger... well, not exactly. Truth be told, I started with Livejournal. Anyone still remember that? And I think I even had a Salon blog for a while. I've tried most blogging platforms, even dabbled in Open Diary and a bit of the free Wordpress (before moving into the fully paid service). But I've had Blogger blogs for the longest time. I have a knitting blog, which has not been updated in yonks, and a beauty blog. Embarrassingly enough, you can still find them on the internets.

I guess this post is not so much an introduction into this blog. If you have been following my blog, this will just seem like a transition. It's nothing particularly new. In fact, I kept the look and feel pretty much the same. If you'd like to subscribe (or resubscribe), please hit the RSS button on the right sidebar or subscribe via email.

Thank you so much for your support and I sincerely hope you enjoy going through the blog. Do let me know if you have any suggestions or topics you'd like to discuss and I'll do my best. You can leave them in the comments below or ping me at one of my many social media platforms.
