Moving over

If you're a regular visitor, you'll notice that I've made a small change and switched over to blogger. I realized that I needed a hosting provider that was more reliable than what I was using before. And of course, blogger is free which makes me very happy.

I managed to import over all my wordpress posts to blogger, after many MANY tries. There's a handy online utility to make the job easier, but it definitely was not painless. (I kept getting these annoying error messages). After much trial and error, I realized that it was the comments which were causing the errors with blogger's import. So I had to manually delete all the comments from the export file. I suppose I could have tried to figure out what was wrong with the XML and fix that, but by that point, I was literally about to hurl my coffee at the laptop. So I chose the easier route. But that also means that... I have LOST ALL MY COMMENTS in the move. :(

So... if you left me a comment in the past, I'm so sorry and I really do appreciate your words. Much more than you know probably. (It's nice to know that people are indeed reading what I write, and they are not just going out into the Internet void).

Oh no! It sucks to lose all your comments! (Especially you know, that mini-essay I wrote you on vintage shopping ;) ). Your blog is adorable though and I am sure it will engender many more comments to come :) Hope blogger treats you well!

I know! I need to cut and paste your mini-essay back in. It was too thoughtful to have it disappear from the blog.
