Moving to a new blog

I tried to move wordpress a few month ago to my website www.lynnthompsonbooks.com and confused myself silly. Sometimes I have a tendency to make tasks harder than they actually are, but I’m getting better. So I decided to try again! Godaddy was very helpful in getting the initial set up done, I love them. (It didn’t take the first time.)

I like wordpress, but I want to do more on my blog than wordpress.com will allow me to do. Now I’m working with wordpress.org on my new blog.

Moving WordPress files was a tad more difficult. I turned my files into the html codes like I was instructed, but they wouldn’t transfer over to my new blog, and I didn’t want to pay 129.00 for someone at wordpress to transfer everything over for me. What I ended up doing was a separate download html file for my posts only (hoping to do the same for my pages.) That worked. I was able to get all of my posts transferred over. Pages it didn’t work for, so I ended up copying and pasting those over. Not to difficult and Lynn’s Corner is up and ready to go.

Anyway my new bolg is now @ blog.lynnthompsonbooks.com

Happy blogging.

This site will be up for a while until I make sure I have everything on my new site.
