Yesterday I spent roughly twelve hours on blog related business...long computer day. My husband felt neglected but I did ride bikes a couple miles with him. Pathetic, I know. Poor Jon.
First, I spent forever choosing a new blog name while looking into getting my own domain versus continuing with Blogger. For now, Blogger meets my needs. Then I spent as much time tweaking my new layout and widgets including adding my first poll. This whole blogging things is a learn-as-I-go process so each change takes me forever. I finished reading a book and wrote my review. But for unknown reasons Blogger would not publish my post in my new blog! So vexing! I had to strip out everything fancy and republish each time I added a picture. Irritating. Then I installed Google Analytics to my new blog because I cannot live without that info! It's too much fun!
Today, I discovered links on my pages, like my reviews page, direct traffic to my old blog even though the posts are on my new blog. For lack of a better way to fix the problem I changed each link manually to my new site. This is time consuming since I have to bring up each individual post in my new blog and then copy/paste the URL and copy that over my old link...ugh. I'm half done. Anyone know a better way to do this? Also, I am unaware of how to allow readers to leave hyperlinks within a comment on my posts. It seems Blogger does not allow this. Anyone have tips? So, about 2 hours of Bloggiesta activity today!
