Welcome to the new home of Golden Rule Jones. For the past 3-1/2 years I’ve been using the Blogger platform, hosted on Blogspot.com. For at least half that long I’ve planned to move to a better platform, but it was only the performance problems over the last week or two that finally put me to work on the transition.
I followed Peter Forret’s instructions (including selecting BlueHost as a host), and the whole thing was surprisingly easy. The aptly named tool Fantastico, running on the BlueHost servers, installed Word Press automatically, and I was able to pull all my old content from Blogger over to the new site with a single click. As Peter says, friggin’ awesome.
I’m still tweaking — for example, links to my own site which I’ve embedded in past posts still point to the old site — but it seems to be working fine so far.
End of technical bulletin. Back to literature.
