Now then – where were we?
Sometimes things happen for a reason – and I think this was one of those things that happen for a reason. Those of you that know me know I’ve been talking about migrating off of Blogger to WordPress and hosting Lost in America (that’s its real name, you know) privately for a long time. You’ve followed my trials and tribulations with Windows Live Writer (a great little freeware necessary because of Blogger’s useless imagine manipulation tools). I’ve even set up a test blog on WP. But life intervenes, we’re busy, and stuff gets put off.
Well, that’s done with. Because of things, I’ve been pushed to make the move now. Fortunately I had a recent backup of the site, and the help of incredibly generous people – most especially Setsuken from Anime Evo and my brother-in-law Doug. Both have shared their valuable time and expertise in helping me get this transition done, and Setsuken has basically done most of the heavy lifting in customizing the blog itself. I can’t possibly thank either of them enough.
As for the new site, as you can see we’ve finally leaped into the 21st Century. There are going to be some hiccups with old posts, broken links, etc., and it’s going to take some time to get all my tags converted to categories. It’s also going to take some time to get caught up with this last week’s posts. But I’m excited both about what LiA is now and about what it can now become. I’m going to play with my new toys and experiment with post formats (because hey – now I can!), and the layout is a work in progress – but I’m thrilled to be here. By all means feel free to bury me in feedback about what you like and what you love (and even what you don’t).
See you later tonight with the first new article (how better to break in the new site than with Boku Dake ga Inai Machi) and, as ever, my sincere thanks for reading and participating!
