It has been a stressful decision process, but I’ve decided to discontinue Being Yordie Sands on Google Blogger. The reasons are discussed on my last post “official” post Coming: A Very Difficult Change. I’ve chosen WordPress as the new home. Yay! In fact, this blog will be renamed Being Yordie Sands later today.
Here’s the short version of my thoughts about this:
- My Blogger site has issues I believe were introduced by Internet Explore.
- My Blogger site is not fixable with reasonable efforts.
- Moving from Blogger to WordPress will cost me all my rankings.
- WordPress has a very active interface with other blogs and readers.
- I’m writing for iRez salon and much of my new writing will go there.
- Being Yordie Sands style content will go here.
I hope all my readers from my Google site will come with me to this new blog, but there is no hope for saving the rankings I built up on that site.
Please stay tuned. Despite all that will be lost, I’m very enthusiastic about rebuilding my reader base.
