So i did it. After thinking about it for a week, i decided to move away from the easy life on wordpress.com and into the big bad web itself. I have to say it feels good, although i still have no idea what to do with the old blog at partybusiness.wordpress.com. Do i move the content over here- as in importing it here, deleting it there? Do i simply copy it? Or should i go with a fresh start here? I haven’t decided yet. For now, i’ll go with the clean slate- the import functionality doesn’t work in the moment, anyway. It might, tomorrow, but we’ll see. I won’t transfer the blog manually- either it will be a thing of an hour or two or i’ll be fine anyway. Keeping the posts there would be good for externals, i guess- although there aren’t that many inbound links, anyway.
Now the figuring-out part really begins: what to do here and how to do it? I’ll work it out on the go. The only thing i can really tell is: this time, it’s personal. No, i don’t want to tell you how my son behaved when i told him to brush his teeth this morning (he ran away), but i don’t want to simply focus on the MMORPG stuff. I mean, quite often, really, you’ll find that a person who likes x might also like y…that’s the way Amazon’s recommendations work. So chances are we’ll find more common ground than MMORPGs.
So let’s see how this works out. It feels good, anyway, because right now, it’s not too hard to decide what to do with the old content. The longer i would have stayed on the platform, the more difficult it would be to leave it behind (or transfer the content, whatever it will be).
