The Swiss Watch Blog has now moved to WordPress. I have mixed feelings. I know that moving to WordPress will give this blog a lot more search and categorization functionality. However, it is a lot more work that iWeb, the old program we have been using.
Why did we switch? Good question. Apple is discontinuing their hosting service on MobileMe, where our blog used to live. To boot, they have decided not to support the iWeb program any longer now that the magical iCloud has been introduced. So, there was a chance that one day in June, our blog could go “poof” and disappear forever.
We were afraid our mothers would be horrified that they couldn’t check in on us everyday, so we attempted to save the blog.
I found a $50 app that converted all of the text and comments from iWeb. I purchased it and we are officially online at WordPress. However, I need to manually add the photos and captions back in. Good thing that I am glued to my recliner recovering from foot surgery. Otherwise, the task of updating 208 posts would be too daunting to bear.
So I ask this of my loyal readers…..through the next few weeks, please comment and let me know what you think of the new format. Let me know if we should keep this thing up!!
I say welcome to WordPress! Once you get the hang of it, it’s really not too bad! Haven looked back since I joined 😉
I like it. I read your posts from my phone since Kailyn doesn’t let me do much on my computer. She enjoys beating on it. The new format is easy to navigate. I hope you are doing well with the recovery.
