…sending me into an organized chaos. Currently I have 3,000,000 categories and ZERO tags here on WordPress.com. I came to simplify not to multiply. Growing pains this is perhaps.
Comments will be closed on jessicadoyle.ca and comments will be OPEN here tonight hence forth.
Come and watch while I *dance behind the scenes creating a space for creativity in between you and me.
Expect change here everyday. Expect feed, link and Blogroll updates.
As far as I can tell the XML file created using a plugin by Aaron Brazell imported quite nicely, thanks to sunburntcamel’s find/change wizardry. French accents and other characters, however, did not. I’ll be editing every single post in this blog for personal reasons. I will not be deleting any published post nor changing any information contained therein but will be updating grammar, spelling, coding and linking mistakes.
Yes, that time of year has arrived where I must pay Hosting and Domain Name renewal fees. This year, however, I am solely renewing the domain name of http://jessicadoyle.ca.
I have enjoyed hosting a WordPress.org Blog. I learned a helluva lot. The learning curve has become a burden I am sad to say, as I am inept at updating the software, and the sheer volume of possible combinations of themes, plugins and CSS styles has overwhelmed me. Moving to WordPress.com will eliminate most of that choice bringing things back to basics and what I truly want to do, write, draw and share.
Since moving to Saint John the realization of:
a. I am not stupid set in 😉 and,
b. Simplify your online life both became quite apparent.
I know enough to make a choice in pursuit of happiness rather than remain stagnant on this Blog.
I can be found at http://jessicadoyle.wordpress.com. In a month I’ll be pointing that Blog to the domain name of http://jessicadoyle.ca after I complete transferring all the published posts on this Blog to that Blog. And from what I have discovered that is no easy task plugin or no plugin. My categories have disappeared and I am no XML wizard. But, I will do my best even if it comes down to copying and pasting each post, 345 in all manually. I wanted to do some editing anyways!
For the time being I will not be updating this Blog nor the WordPress.com Blog. I will be updating Flickr with art and handwritten posts two or three times per week. Hope to see you around! And I will announce when I am alive over on WordPress.com.
Wish me luck.
