Just wanted to let you guys know it is not your imagination, I am changing and changing and changing things here. I cleaned up my blogroll for instance, getting rid of several that hadn’t updated in a long time and adding several who I’ve been reading for a long time but haven’t been on there for some unknown reason. I am pretty sure I’m missing some still. It doesn’t look complete. Yes, I read a lot of blogs.
I need to work on the Single Parent Blogs section too but haven’t had a moment to do that yet. Something I was considering doing was importing my content from my old LiveJournal blog. I don’t know if that’s something that would interest you guys. The LiveJournal content is mostly from 2008 and 2009. There are a few posts leading up to the separation– not many because I was terrified to actually write about it and get it out of me. My Ex never ever read my blog but I was terrified the one day he would actually do so would probably be after I wrote about my feelings about the marriage and such things. I really didn’t have to worry but better to be safe than sorry.
My Dad is pushing me hard to migrate to self-hosted and so that will be happening soon, maybe even this weekend. I’m sort of scared– of failing or succeeding honestly. I was looking at the Yakezie people and the Challenge they have– an Alexa rating under 200,000 in six months. I’m in the 1.5M area so that seems really daunting to me. And Alexa doesn’t really make a lot sense to me. I just checked out one site that gets steady traffic and Alexa has no data on them. I feel like page views would be better goals to work at instead of a ranking I don’t really comprehend.
Anyways, please don’t get too attached to any layout or anything like that on here. Nothing is final. And let me know if you’re missing from my blogroll or my Single Parents Blogs page. Oh and let me know if you’d be interested in the old stuff. I had a Diaryland before I had a LiveJournal so there’s that as well, but I figure I better handle one thing at a time. If you have suggestions, fire them at me. I’m trying to figure out where to host it for instance. And I’m trying to read up on the actual migration process. If any of you have been through it and have some tips for me– fire them at me either in the comments or at my email.
