Christmas Move

A very un-PC Merry Christmas everyone, and a huge thank you to all of you who have become part of my little corner of the internet. To all of you who have shared so generously with me by reading, with comments that have been encouraging and funny and hot, with emails that have provided me with food for thought and space to rant, I wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday.

In the next few days, I will be moving this blog to my own domain.

Exciting!! And scary!

I have exhaustively tested what the impact will be, but I am not to be trusted, so we will see soon enough. This is what I expect:

Bookmarks and such

  • You will be redirected manually for a very short while (i.e. you will have to click a button), then you will be redirected automatically soon after that, so you will go straight to the new site
  • Your bookmarks will still work due to the auto-redirection, but best to update them in case I make further changes

Feed reader links (RSS feeds etc)

  • Existing feeds *should* continue to work after the move (fingers crossed!)
    ** Edited to add:  Further testing showed that this may well be a big fat lie!!  It worked in the first round of testing, but not in the second…  I told you I was not to be trusted…!
  • I will put the new subscribe button prominantly in position and remind you to update after the move, regardless

Google Followers

  • The move *should* bring you along and you should see no change
    ** Edited to add: Errrmmm… this may also be a lie…  
  • As with the above, I suggest that you ‘Follow’ using the button in the navigation bar up at the top so that you are following the correct site address

Fingers crossed that the movers don’t leave behind the good champagne glasses or (god forbid!) squash a gorgeous pair of shoes in the moving frenzy…

I am imagining this for the move… *waves imperiously*

  1. Well a hearty HO HO HO and merry Christmas to you as well. May your holiday be a safe, happy and fun one as well.

    I am very much looking forward to following the trail of cookies that leads to your new site.

  2. I like to see people do well and I am especially pleased that you are taking your web presence to the next level.

    Not only is your blog a great read and fun to comment on, but you have drawn an intelligent and engaging group of followers that really add to the experience. (yes fellow readers, I am talking about YOU!)

    I'm sure it will only get better from here.

  3. I'm to be blindfolded and moved to a domain of your choice which you absolutely control.

    Somehow I always knew this would happen.

    Thanks Santa!

    “I am very much looking forward to following the trail of cookies that leads to your new site.”

    There *will* be cookies leading to the gingerbread house…

    “…you have drawn an intelligent and engaging group of followers that really add to the experience. (yes fellow readers, I am talking about YOU!)”

    Yes!! Well, mostly *peers suspiciously at Tom Allen*

    “I'm sure it will only get better from here.”

    Thank you for the vote of confidence… you will see no difference in the first instance (same-same… *yawn*), but I will be working on it!

  6. puppy: “Oh no, won't the new domain feel cold and unfriendly, Miss Ferns? I don't hold with change!”

    No no… it will be warm and cosy and you will feel right at home. I will hold your hand so you don't get scared…

  7. Maggie: “Merry Christmas back at ya!”

    Thank you! I am now full of champagne and turkey and creme brulee and and… *groan*

    “Goodluck with the domain move.. as long as I can find you, then I don't have to come hunt you down!”

    Heh… I will do my very best to make the hunting more of a gentle meander with a cocktail in hand.

    I did too, Cakeboy, and any pretense to the contrary to date has simply been a delusional kind of denial. I won't leave you behind, I promised.

  9. Coug: “*Just stares in horror* Are you insane??? I'll lose you forever!”

    No no, I'll hold your hand… or maybe a leash… you know, so you don't get lost… heh…

    Yardbird… NOOOOOOOO!!!!

    *sigh* Collateral damage, sometimes it just can't be helped.
