From Blogger to WordPress: Or How I’ll Never Brag about being Computer-savvy Again

Hello. Sorry to bother you. I have to complain to someone and this is the only page still working properly around here. I’m here to bitch, so fair warning.

I had this hare-brained idea to start an author’s page on WordPress, where I could corral all of my writing into one space–where it couldn’t go wandering off into the wilderness, never to be seen again.  I decided to call it “Ramona Grigg”, since that’s my name and I apparently have no imagination.  I figured I could move my 10-year-old Blogger blog, Ramona’s Voices, over to WP and we’d be one big happy family. All together.

You’ll notice I didn’t link to Ramona’s Voices? That’s because I’ve done something that has rendered it invisible. Or Blogger is mad at me for leaving without notice and they’re hiding it. Something happened and it doesn’t redirect to anywhere now. It’s in limbo. So if you go there it’s a dead end. I hate that!

I’ve been chatting with the really nice folks at WordPress but every time they tell me to do something that seems reasonable, I’ve already done it and it hasn’t worked. I’m waiting right now in what I assume is a chat queue, but maybe not. They keep telling me they’ll be there for me but son of a gun they’re not there.

What do I expect you to do about it? Nothing. Just listen. Or pretend to listen.  I’ll just keep writing here to keep from panicking, if you don’t mind.

It’s not as if the world will end, or anyone else will care, and it’s not as if some of my posts haven’t been cross-posted in other places where I can maybe grab some of them back, but I would love to see my decade-old blog come through intact.

So that’s all for now. I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for listening. I needed this.
