The email basically said, I would love help. Not that she really wanted to completely blow this popsicle stand, but well there have been some issues with Google as of late. I promptly said, I’ll just get it all set up and surprise her. Well about an hour of my time and I had it relatively ready. Then all we needed to do was port everything over from Blogger and redirect the traffic headed to blogger.
This morning she finished the last step which was a redirect. She has herself a new shiny blog that even still has the new blog smell. That’s not to say that any of the content is gone it’s all there.
She thought she may have messed something up when blogger all the sudden started sending everyone to blogspot, but nope, it’s working just as intended. She now has freedom and power at her disposal.
So go give her a nice house-warming. We’re still unpacking, but she’s enjoying the new place.
Welcome to the Dark Side A Girl, we have cookies, they’re on the counter!
*If you would like to ditch blogger, I am more than happy to help. At this point though I do not want to be buying everyone and their mother a domain name. If you have a domain and want to move, contact me, we can hash something out. I’m not going to do everyone’s for free, hours of time do add up. That said, this weekend I’m going to kick off a site for gun bloggers that will behave much like blogger. You get a sub-domain and I will help your migration if necessary. That keeps my costs to purely time, and a minimal amount at that.
If you want full hosting though, please do contact me, we can probably work something out.
