The deed is done! I have a NEW HOME

I have cogitated for a year or so, about updating my blog face. A couple of pals set about the task, but work got in the way so I was sitting all forlorn and aging on the byways of life.

Formatting on my old outdated blog, in the last few days was driving me to distraction, plugins were no longer compatible, so after a chat with Elly. I took the bull by the horns and moved house.

This is where you can find the all new bright and shiny Grannymar. So go on and bookmark it.

Well almost!  So far I only have blog posts from way back in the last century moved and it will take time to deal with the others.

The old blog will stand for the moment until I decide which of the 2,400+ posts, in 33 different categories to pull over to my new home. Please be patient with me.

In the meantime, Let the party begin……

    I’ll admit to being a little sad that you’re ditching your current home (domain) rather than just sprucing things up (well, yes, some major renovation required). Though the new place looks lovely and ill add the feed to my reader as always. 🙂

    Phil – After our chat yesterday, I went looking for those plugins, It was then I discovered things were not at all compatible. The rest happened with the speed of an avalanche. I sill have a ways to go, to add all the old blog posts.

    Great! You’re doing what I desperately need to do but don’t–it seems more than I can muster right now. I’ll watch you, I know you’ll give the shout-out when it’s time to activate that new link. Good luck with that.

    I like it! I really miss having a WordPress blog up, because there is so much you can do with the format and it looks so clean. But … I finally bailed on mine for the reasons you know, under siege. Who knows why?

    Still, I think yours looks marvelous!

    Fossie, I am pleased so far with the move. Old posts are moved over and next I want to move the LBC and try to include all the comments.

    Barbara, It is almost a full time job at the moment, trying to get things the way I want. I am still working – or trying to, on my side bar!

    Oh, dear. I still have that old format, and you are scaring the pants off me regarding what would be entailed in changing it. What plugins you wanted won’t work there?

    Colonialist, Starting the new blog was easier than I expected. The problem now is moving all the posts over.

    I was having trouble with the text formatting, it would not appear as I wanted it to. Several people made suggestions, but being old the plugins were not compatible. I don’t really understand what goes on in the bowels of the blog. so jumping ship seemed easier.
