The transfer from Blogger to Typepad is almost complete. Most links in posts should now be fixed and almost all of the features from the old blog have been added back in.
I decided to only transfer over the "meatier" posts and those deal posts which were still relevant. I have around 30-40 more posts yet to transfer over so if some of the categories seem rather lean right now, they’ll be beefed up in the next few weeks.
It’s been a rather tedious process and taken all of my spare time over the last week; I am ever so ready to be done so I can get back to normal blogging and real-life! But it’s been a great learning experience, too, and I’ve enjoyed the new challenges it has presented.
I have figured most everything out in the transfer process but transferring my feed. I had over 3000 subscribers to my last feed and I’m really not anxious to lose them all. However, everything I’ve read and tried regarding the transfer of feeds doesn’t appear to be working. In fact, I’m not even sure that the new Typepad feed is working correctly.
If you are subscribed to this blog via a feed reader and you do get this post in your reader, could you take a moment to comment and let me know what feed reader you are using and what feed you are subscribed to? (The old feed or the new feed?)
Also, if anyone has any great pointers on transferring/re-directing feed, I’m all ears. I tried transferring it through Blogger, through Feed Burner, and through Typepad. None of these seemed to do the trick, but I may have just overlooked something somewhere in my technical novicity (hmm, did I just make up a new word?).
And would you believe it? Just yesterday afternoon, when I had finished the final touches of straightening things out here on this new blog and was starting to feel more at-ease with Typepad, lo and behold, Blogger unlocked my old blog! There’s no turning back now, though, and I’m really happy I made the change; Typepad is fast becoming my favorite blogging platform.
And so ends my bizarre blogging saga; thanks for sticking it out with me over the ups and downs of the last two weeks. You all deserve some sort of award for "Most Patient Blog Readers of the Century." Since I can’t personally deliver it to each one of you, I’ll just have to make sure and serve up a whole lotta great deals over the next fifty years to make up for it.
