Time for a Change

So it looks like I have moved blogs, to lavender tisane on blogger. I didn’t really want to let everyone know until I felt more settled in and comfortable, but I think I do like blogger more than wordpress, which has always felt too formal and intimidating for me somehow. I’m still not blogging too often, but I thought I’d rather continue to share this sense of community and friendship with you all in a more comfortable way for me than go completely off on my own. I’ve already reviewed Evelina by Fanny Burney there, as well as the first two Pink Carnation books by Lauren Willig, so please stop by for some lavender tea with me!

(By the way, what is the protocol or procedure on moving blogs, do people move all their old entries to the new site or just start over and tell people to refer back to the old one for previous reviews? Can you move comments over too? I don’t know if I’d want to move all my old entries, but I have a few favourites that I feel encapsulate the type of blogging I’d like to do going forward — more of a random hodge-podge of all my favourite things than anything too disciplined really — that I wouldn’t mind moving with me. Thanks again for taking the time to read my blog and hope to see you at the new one.)

    I started in Blogger, moved to WordPress, then back to Blogger because I much prefer it. I know what you mean about it somehow seeming “colder” or formal. I had quite a difficult time transferring all my posts back into Blogger. I can’t see why one couldn’t just begin again. OPne’s true friends always follow wherever one goes.

    It’s nice to meet you, by the way. I came here from seeing your name in a few sidebars I love.

    Your new blog looks lovely, Carolyn. I especially like the lavender sky!

    I’ve tried leaving a comment but my ID doesn’t work, although it’s being accepted here. Will look into this.

    I hope spring reaches your part of the world very soon.

    You need to do an full export and then import that file into your new blog. Just don’t publish automatically. That way you can weed out the posts you don’t want to keep. Comments are exported as well.

    Aw, you’re moving? I feel strangely bereft, even though you’re not leaving the blogosphere! I know I prefer WP – there are lots of Blogger blogs where I can’t leave comments, and I don’t like the commenting structure, but that’s just me 🙂

    I know friends who’ve switched and apparently there’s a way to move all your content – including comments – over, but I don’t know how to do it (hence why all my old reviews are comment-less!). I didn’t research it when I moved from LJ, but I’m sure you can Google it!
