Same blog, same url, new host

Tonight, we needed say goodbye to QuickBlogCast, and hello to WordPress. Thank goodness the URL is the same(it’s nice to own your own domain!).

I was able to move all our posts from our old service to our new service pretty damn quickly, but I have to move the pictures manually. The pictures are presently hosted at, which GoDaddy is taking down at midnight; you may soon see “broken image icons” until I finish moving the pictures to our own domain. This is a better long term solution than, so I should be thankful that we’re being forced to migrate. Unfortunately, I can’t move the vlogs that were hosted by QuickBlogCast. Fortunately, there were only a few of of those, maybe only two?

It was very interesting, going through every single post since we started blogging in 2007, watching our family get progressively younger and younger. There are some precious pics, and, although the move is something of a pain, it was a good excuse to look back on the last 7 years of posts. As usual, I realize I need to post more often. “Real” bloggers post daily, and I just don’t have the energy. But I might summon that energy instead of posting to FB. FB was opened to the general public the year before we started this blog, and I didn’t even have a FB account for years after that. Here, I can write as many words as I wish, and add whatever photos, links etc. A blog entry is far more versatile than a FB post, and I usually post a link to the blog from FB anyway. Stay tuned…
