Bye Blogger

This was a tough decision, but I decided it was time to move my other blog (the one that was dedicated to last year’s weight loss journey) from Blogger to my private web host here.  I figured out how to host multiple WP blogs from one installation and I want to take advantage of that.
I hate leaving Blogger.  I’m a sucker for Google and its fun interconnected network of goodies, but…well, WordPress just has so much more available to me.  I was going to merge it with this site, but I really want to keep all the intensive dieting/nutrition/exercise stuff in one place.  I still want to use Blogger for something…I just don’t know what yet.

So far I have all the entries imported, but need to rework them a little and try to make sense of all the categories and tags I threw onto all the posts.  I stink at tagging.  Seriously.  I overtag and overcategorize.  They need to teach a class on that.
I also want to tweak the template and decide upon all the fun plugins I want to add.  (That’s my favorite part!)

In any case, the other site should be up and running again in a week or so and then everyone can pop over there and read all about my final journey to lose weight.  Yes.  Final.  I have lost the weight and I think I have finally – FINALLY – found the right mix of healthy habits to keep me at this weight forever.

Almost there…

Okay, I got the comments working and I learned *A LOT* about wordpress tonight. It simply rocks.  I’m not happy with the current colors right now, but I’ll tackle that tomorrow.
I am soooo glad tomorrow is Thursday. I love Thursdays. It means that Friday is almost here and that makes me very happy. Let’s see if I can make it through tomorrow without another one of my killer headaches. Ech – I really hate headaches. I just can’t function when I have one.

I give up.

I have noooooo idea what I am doing wrong, but I can’t seem to make my comments work. I did get a popup box, but it was ugly. Where do I make the changes to the comments page?  How do I get comments to work without the popup?

Goodness!

And so it begins…

A few years ago, someone wrote to me and told me that they thought I might enjoy maintaining a weblog. Although I definitely like the idea of keeping an online journal, I found that I really didn’t have the time to set one up. I have a hard time just starting something without researching it first and finding the best way to do something and the best resources to use while doing it. So, I pretty much forgot about the entire weblog idea until I came across that email again a few days ago. So…here I am.
I tried Blogger, but I kind of like having a little more control over my web creations, so I ended up with Greymatter, which was wonderful, but not quite what I was looking for….and then I tried Movable Type…and finally moved to WordPress. I have spent 5 long hours playing around with the design, the name, the colors, etc. I wouldn’t be surprised if this weblog ends up looking completely different by the end of the weekend. Well, so far so good.
