Remember the movie ‘The Princess Bride’?
My favorite line: In answer to the question ‘Is he dead?’ was, ‘No, only mostly dead.’
My blog was with Typepad for over 7 years.
I’ve thought about moving it in the past but it’s not an easy project.
The way photos are stored at Typepad makes it extremely difficult to move them. What happens often is that one has to maintain the Typepad account in order to have the photos displayed with the blog posts or one has to manually add the photos.
I have 1500 posts – and a lot more photos…. Redoing all of them is not an option.
Recently, research led me to believe that the problem had a solution.
To be more clear, other bloggers had done posts on how easy it was to move the photos.
I decided to take the plunge.
It wasn’t easy.
I won’t bore you with the details.
When I finally figured out how to make it work, the software I was using told me my file was to big – and offered no alternatives.
Well, I figured that out too.
The end result it that all of the posts have been moved and most of the photos. The remaining photos I’ll have to locate and upload manually.
And it only took me 3 days!
I’m pretty sure all the links, emails, and all that jazz will be okay, as well.
So – I’m here, I’ll finish tarting it all up tomorrow and get back to posting as usual.
It works! (mostly)
