In short, I dumped it. Sort of. *I* can still access it, but you can’t. Why? I just didn’t like where it was going. I missed having this record of my kids’ histories. I didn’t like having it password protected. I didn’t feel much like blogging because of that. So I wavered and I thought about it and decided that this is a great solution for me. A fresh start. No more password. Lots more photos. More current updates.
I’m trying and trying to figure out how to export my old posts into a PDF or EPUB or some sort of digitally readable format so I can have it for myself. If anyone out there knows a way to do this with a self-hosted WordPress blog, let me know. The few things I’ve tried have totally timed out because 5 years of blog posts are a bit much for the server to process.
Meanwhile, welcome – or welcome back! Let the blogging begin (or continue – whatever).
