Apple you confound me. It’s a love/hate thing. Really. So easy to work with, such pleasant employees, intoxicating stores; I sing your praises often. (although, I have lots to learn and my Hubby does not share my love of Apple products necessarily, especially when he asks me how to do something on my laptop and I say “yeah, I don’t know….google it.”), anyway….really I love Apple. However, right now they are my “S List”. That’s right. The Sucko List.
They are discontinuing their iWeb service (and a few other things that I don’t really use….) and that caused me to have to uproot my prior blog to new and less precarious pastures. The problem is….unlike many of their other services, they didn’t really have a super clear and/or EASY way to move the iWeb blogs to other services. I could use a big red Staples button here. Really. Not kidding.
easy it ain’t!!
Last summer I started looking around for other blog homes and decided on an unnamed site that could move my blog easy sneezy, had pretty good directions (even for me), however, I ended up calling IT support and between the two of us they could NOT move my blog. Something in the version of my laptop or the iWeb I have is hindering progress, so I came up with a big fat ZERO!! Very frustrating. In the meantime, I decided to cease and desist any further bloggage on the iWeb and I moved to WordPress with my new blog (which, incidentally is working for me so far) and deal with the move later. Much later.
In my infamous procrastinator-fashion, I have truly waited until the bitter end to move that B. I currently have
7 6 days to move a little over 2 years and 3 months. I’ve moved 9 months of blogging in the past 3 days. It’s a cut and paste nightmare. Screenshots for pics that aren’t crossing over on the cut and paste. I’m a little fried. Wondering if I’ll actually get it done. The worst part is….my hard drive crashed a few months ago and guess what didn’t get backed up….yep. iWeb. the bane of my existence right now. So, I don’t even have the blog on my harddrive to just pick and pull when I feel like it. Which is probably best. Because in all reality, under pressure is my best work and I will get it done. Under pressure, I turn into a focused Type-A person. Once crisis averted, I’m back to my laid back procrastinating self. It’s a vicious cycle.
Either way. You might not see much blogging on my end for a few days. I guess it’s good we are getting a lot of rain today, I know what I’ll be doing. And at least for the next 7 days in between. After that…I must say…I fully plan on recycling some of my old posts. There was some good stuff in there. I’ll keep my second WP site private, it’s very personal and emotional (in fact, I am working diligently on NOT getting sidetracked re-reading old posts….it’s HARD!!), but I will recycle and update them to share with you as I pour over them. My heart will be on my sleeve, but WOW was God working over-time in my life those 3 years–He still is now, but when you look back you can see His presence so vividly. It. Is. AWE-some!
Well, time for coffee #2 and a little breakfast before Mass! C ya!
