There are a slew of reasons why I've decided to switch.
I was in bed most of the weekend anyway (quite sick) so I spent a fair amount of time cutting and pasting old posts to this new place. Tedious. I'm sure there's a faster way...I still have quite a bit to import, perhaps someone can enlighten me. Blogger already seems more user friendly (yay!) but I'm sure I'll be pandering for help with formatting and photo-uploading sooner or later.
The primary reason I switched is because it is most important for me to be able to slurp this blog into a book every year and I cannot figure out how to do it from my old set-up. (Again, I'm sure it can be done, but even the customer service folks at Blurb were no help to me in the pursuit).
And I guess I just have new goals and purposes behind my blogging...so I thought a fresh start was apropos. Change your links if you please (somethingsgotogether.blogspot.com). Either way, this is where we'll be. And pardon the "dust" for the next few days (weeks, months...however long the relocation process takes).
