Typepad Ho!


OK, campers, the decision is made. It's Typepad Ho! No, not ho like that. As in, um, Tally Ho! Westward Ho! And yes, maybe a little bit of that ho, too.

Here's the deal. I wasn't able to figure out how to scoop up all the Blogger archives and import them to Typepad. Or rather, I could, but I really wasn't sure exactly how it was going to work. I imagined myself wiping out the whole archives in one fell swoop. Or is that fool swoop? I also wasn't sure what it would do if people already had operative links on their sites to stuff with the Blogger URL.

Anyway. I have basically manually moved over almost all the old post files, with a few exceptions where I thought probably nobody would mind, including me. Yes, it was very tedious and boring, thank you for asking. God knows why I was so gabby in July, for example.

It's still in the process of being tweaked here and there. And all the furniture has not turned up yet. For example, I have not managed to get any comments shifted. I may tinker around with that just to see if I can get some of the more interesting and exciting conversations across (the one about grey pubic hairs springs to mind). In the meantime, please just comment a-go go to compensate. In fact, I expect, nay, demand that you to comment, since that was one of the overriding reasons for the big move- basically the main message I got from you was that commenting on Blogger sucks ass. And I am nothing if not obliging.

So. Everything will stay here as it is for now. But now, if I could ask those of you who link to me to take hold of your reins with one hand whilst making a big lassoo with another, and update on over to this location:


I'll see you there.
