Resurrection!

I am going to attempt to resurrect my Blogger Blog. I have wanted to do this for awhile now but have been hesitant. We own our own domain and it seemed silly to use a free blog site when we are paying yearly for another. However, Blogger has come a long way since I left it many years ago. As you can see from my previous posts on here... I have been gone from this blog for several years.

I wanted to move back for a few reasons. One of them being that it is super easy to get a cute blog template and change it out at my leisure over here. That is a big plus to me. Neither hubby nor I know how to write CSS code to design new templates for my other blog. He tweaks it a a little here and there when I ask... but that is the plus of coming back over here, I can tweak this one myself at any time.

The other reason is that my blog traffic is terrible. I know most people use Blogger and the majority do not know how to "Follow" my other blog.

the downfall to this is that everyone has to change their bookmarks of my blog, I have to start from the bottom up getting followers, and what am I going to do with my other blog that we are paying for?
I am not sure that I want to take the leap to leaving my old blog behind.. I am a bit sentimental like that. I figure though, I left this one behind and it was ok..lol

Soooo I am going to do a little test to see how this one goes. Take it for a test drive of sorts. I will let that determine whether or not it is worth ditching the other for this one.

What do you guys think? Any thoughts, suggestions, comments?

I would love to hear them.

  2. Hey, girlie! It is a bit more difficult to follow your other blog; I had to add it manually to my list and some people may not know how to do that. My suggestion would be to put a post on your other blog with a link to this one, and leave it at the top so that it's the first thing they see when they come over. I'd also advertise the change at any of the groups you frequent, like splitcoast, sb.com, CDAC, outlawz, etc. It will take some time, but your traffic will increase and your followers will come, because you are mega talented. It might also help to offer a RAK, even something small. I can contribute to it, if you like. Maybe offer some tutorials, too, or links to your vids that you already posted on youtube. Ok, I've talked enough!!! Welcome back to blogger!!! LUG.
