If I’d had any idea what a painfully tedious process it would be to copy and paste all my old blog entries to the new blog, I might never have begun. I’m damn near cross-eyed from staring at the monitor so much this weekend. But! I’m over halfway there now, and hope to finish within the next day or two.
A few things worth mentioning:
- I’ve un-linked any previous posts linked within a post…Going back and forth, getting new URLs, etc. would just be TOO much, especially since I’m working my way backward through the old entries, which means that an entry linked in a post I’m copying hasn’t yet been moved and therefore doesn’t yet have a new URL. And who wants to try to keep track of every entry I’d need to go back to and re-link? Not me, that’s who.
- I just re-read that last part and, I’m not even sure it makes sense. But I’m too tired to try to re-do it, so let’s just move along, shall we?
- I’m glad I decided to move all the old entries over to WordPress, because I really want to delete the old blog and sever my ties with Tripod. The only negative is that I’ll be losing all the comments from the past two years. Which totally sucks.
The entries with photos have turned out to be a nightmare to move. WordPress and Tripod do NOT get along. I’ve finally gotten a relatively painless system figured out, but I haven’t yet figured out how to put a full-size image in a WordPress entry (or even IF that’s possible). So far, all I can get are thumbnails which link to a full-size image. So you guys should know that any time you see a thumbnail…
I’m consolidating all the “about me” entries into one page, which you can access by clicking on “140 Things About Me” in the top, right-hand corner of the home page.
Alrighty, I’m off to copy/paste/edit my little fingers off. Hope everyone is having a terrific Labor Day Weekend!
