Vair Important Tech-y Note

We are experiencing massive overhauls with the site. I'm trying to move it, and I have no idea what I'm doing, other than begging for help from the more intelligent squirrels out there in internet-land. Suffice to say, I'm freaking out. 

Lemme 'splain. Once upon a time there was a blogging platform called Diary X. I had TONS of writing on it. This is in 2000/2001. One day it up and vanished. Along with all my writing. I cried. A lot. 

SO! Now Typepad is going through a huge overhaul, and buddy? I've been burned once and I'm not getting burned again. I'm moving the site to WordPress. This shouldn't be hard at all, right?


Oh my squirrels. I'm working on it. Keep your fingers firmly crossed, and remember to please make sure ALL your bookmarks are for, I mean cause we might be movin' on up if I don't lose the site entirely or explode the internet in the process.

Hold me?

  1. Ooops. Comment went to electron heaven: back everything up this minute, about three different ways. However typepad saays to do it, and any other way you can find out about. Back it up, back it up.

  2. Holler at me if you need long-distance help. I’ve installed WordPress multiple times, AND I’ve had to move blogs from one site to another. It’s not fun but it’s not rocket surgery (or brain science) either.

  3. I’ve moved a typepad site to a blogger, and then a blogger to wordpress. It’s pretty easy to cross platforms, though I think I lost some of my tags during the latter. The first time I downloaded the whole thing as a text file, then uploaded it (this was years ago, and blogger has changed a lot since then), and moving blogger to wp was a “just in case” move during their latest upgrade. That was pretty easy since I didn’t have to install anything, but I did have to do a bit of tweaking as some formatting was lost.
