I am finally taking the plunge and starting my move to WordPress on my own server. It is hardly a plunge really considering how long I have been planning it, more like a tentative step into the shallow end.
Apologies to those who do not use Blogger as the following is not relevant to you.
The first step I have to take is to change over from the old (classic) blogger system to the current system. I had not done this before, despite its improved features as I found it quicker and easier to tweak the template using the old system.
Rather than creating a new template for this move I am going to use a pre-made one, temporarily at least. I will keep this blog active in some form or another, mainly because I do not want anyone to take the sueblimely name. Someone may turn it into a splog (spam blog); shudder at the thought.
The reason I have to change to the new Blogger is because this will allow me to import posts and comments from this blog into WordPress.
Here goes – I have no idea what the move will do to my current settings so please excuse any hopefully temporary hiccups in the page display.
