Blogger To WordPress Conversion A Complicated Mess


Switched Blog From Blogger To WordPressSwitched Blog From Blogger To WordPress

We are back up and running after we switched from Blogger to WordPress. The process was similar to a tooth that you know needs to be taken care of by the dentist. In March 2013, we switched to a WordPress-based website. The old blog site was left behind as a standalone at blogs.cutcompcosts.com.

Ironically, I could not even send out a message that the blog and newsletter were going to be out of service for a few days that actually turned into a week.

When did any type of system downtime actually run on schedule? Just this morning J&L’s bank website was supposed to be down until this morning at 5 AM.  The website is still down in the afternoon.  It happens.

The above emoticon looks like me at 2 AM trying to get the new part of the website to work properly.   This was a huge task that I thought would be very easy.  We hired a consultant company to move everything using an app they had to convert everything.  The app worked.  The results were rather scrambled.

There may be a few kinks as we finalize the relocation. If you find any problems, please email us so that we can fix them promptly. The WordPress interface is far superior. Blogger did serve our posts well for over four years.

There is much work to be done to get the new blog into shape. I am rolling up the proverbial shirt sleeves and getting down to it over the next few days.

One of the reasons we switched was Panda/Penguin penalties due to repetitive meta descriptions and titles. Thanks for your understanding and Let’s Get Back To Saving Workers Comp $$$.

We will miss our old platform as it worked well for quite a few years.
