Starting Over

I’ve moved. It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time now. It was hard to get the time to set things up, and I’m still working at it. It’s a slow process. I hope you’ll be patient with me. Moving is a lot like starting over. You’re shaking your past, leaving it behind, saying adios amigo, see ya later alligator…

IMAG2341But wait a minute…I’m not really going any place. I’ve moved my Dalhousie blog to WordPress. A slow Internet connection played a big role in this decision. Blogger was simply impossible for me to deal with. It’s why I stopped updating. It just wasn’t worth the hassle. Okay, so now some of you are saying Dalhousie Blog? What the heck is that? Some of you know as I continually get clicks from the “way out here in Dalhousie ” tab on this blog. But the Dalhousie blog is a simply blog about life in rural Nova Scotia.

So if you’re interested you might want to check out my “other” blob. I have to be honest, this move has left me a little lonely without a single blog stat. I have one blog follower (Okay, apparently that’s me!) I inadvertently subscribed to my own blog and it simply won’t let me unsubscribe. Kind of pathetic, isn’t it? All well….I’ll start the slow climb upward. And really it’s not about the stats. A blog is an extension of ourselves, a way to express who we are. Who knows perhaps in time I’ll find a way to merge these two parts of my life and bring them together into one. One thing I did notice when the new posts were imported that some of them are a bit off in alignment. I tried moving things around but WordPress was stubborn. It just didn’t happen. So I’m going forward, turning my back on past posts. Full steam ahead!

Anyway, the “other” blog is mostly for photos, usually a quote, and written post. Quite simply for the time being. Perhaps as time goes by I’ll write some longer posts, but that will depend upon how inspired I feel.

So, if you’re ready, willing and able, here’s the link to the brand-spanking new …way out here in Dalhousie blog. I hope you’ll drop in from time to time and I hope I’ll feel much more comfy here with WordPress.

    • Oh, Darlene, no one knows better about “moving” than you! 😉 Blogger was simply so challenging. I find WordPress much more cooperative. Now hopefully, I won’t get bogged down with two blogs. I might just be out of my mind. 😉

  3. Good luck Laura. I love WordPress and recently added and updated my site. Computer just about crashed after I was hacked (scammed) so now with a new computer, (it was time), I am traveling computer road jumping from XP to 8.1…..I relate to your moving. I will be blogging about my scam experience to alert others.

    • Oh no, I’m still planning to stay here. It’s where my writing life is. It’s where I come to chew the fat. The other blog is mostly about rural life, photos, that sort of thing, something that won’t require much “head” work on my part. 😉 And thank you again for signing up!

  5. Your new site looks great, and as a user of WordPress myself, I can understand your rationale for migrating over to it. Maintaining a blog has enough challenges without adding unnecessary ones.

    • Thanks, Carol! I’m hoping WordPress will work better for me. Blogs are a lot of work. I must be nuts..lol! But the Dalhousie blog was mostly photos which I’m hoping will be easier to keep up with.
