I have decided to move my blog back to Blogger. I have been struggling with the what to do since they announced the acquisition of Posterous to Twitter. I truly hope they keep the Posterous site up and running (because I love it), but they have been plagued with problems in the last few weeks and no longer respond to help requests – not a good sign.
It has been a very difficult transition. Posterous does not allow for exporting. WordPress.com is supposed to import Posterous blogs, but I found it only pulled data from 2011 to present. Not sure what I will do with my posts that go back as far as 2009. Hopefully when Posterous does go under, they will provide us with a way to keep all of our data.
Initially I I thought I’d use WordPress.com, but I cannot stand their interface. It’s clunky and does not consistently pull data from other sources – I had photos of all shapes and sizes and no idea how to get them the way I wanted without removing and re-uploading. No thank you! So, it’s back to Blogger. I am still on the fence about self-hosting via WordPress and may go that way someday, but since I follow a lot of Blogger blogs, I thought this might be the easiest way to go. Seems funny to come full circle – I started my first blog on Blogger back in 2004.
I will likely continue to post here till it goes belly up, but will officially move to yf.yffoto.com. Please come visit me at my new home!
