Having my cake and eating it, too

After ten years on the Blogger platform, I'm moving all future blog posts over to WordPress ...
imgoingtotexas.home.blog
However, the good news is that this blog will remain in place for as long as Blogger continues to support it. Which means those of you who enjoy the Kindred Spirits links in the right sidebar can continue to come here, with the added bonus that the new blog will show up when there's a new post.

Addendum (2/9/2019):

I just copied all the old posts over to the new WordPress version of this blog, but will continue to leave the original here for as long as that lasts.

Just FYI: you can fairly easily export your old Blogger posts and import them into your new Wordpress site. I did it when I switched platforms.

Beth - Thanks for this ... I may do that in the future, but for now I really like the way new blog posts from the Kindred Spirits show up in the right sidebar. As far as I can see, WordPress doesn't have that feature (yet?)

Beth Lee said...

Good point. WordPress is so huge, there's likely to be a plugin for that. (Anyway, I'll be looking at your new blog, not your old one, to read new posts, so I won't see that sidebar anymore, right? Or am I misunderstanding?)

Beth Lee said...

... looks like the WP plugin Blogroll Posts might work for you.

Beth - So yes, I'll be migrating parts of the old blog over to the new blog. Inch by inch, row by row.

Inch by inch, row, by row, as happens with so much creative endeavor :)

Thanks for the inspiration Liz - we may need to follow suit!

Fiona - Please let me know if I can provide any insights ... although you and Barry already being on WordPress will certainly make it easier

i was so relieved, like, RELIEVED to read that your Kindred Spirits
would remain...i have loved it for so long and would be so at a
loss without it...have never been able to figure out how to
do something similar at all,
i'm the person who still has an address book in my purse...little
black one....
i come back and forth through any day to check to see if there are
new posts from anyone...
Big Thanks to you for keeping it and tho wordpress is not my favorite
format, i look forward to you making yourself at home there
Love and Love

Grace - you were much on my mind when I made the decision to leave the old blog here (for as long as Blogger exists). I do love the constantly updating Kindred Spirits, although I find my blog disappears from the list when it's in the process of updating. Hmmmm ...

So WordPress and I are slowly getting acquainted ... I share some of your skepticism, but have already found some things that I haven't had on Blogger (inserting videos and editing categories/tags for instance)
