KatherinesCorner.com. I was so excited at the opportunity of providing my blog friends with a more rounded blog that I completely misunderstood a big detail in making such a transfer.
You can't take your blog followers with you....or can you?
After a few tears were shed, and I had already started making an email list of the 1532 followers. I started doing a little more digging. People in the blogging community are kind and they are willing to share with you. You just have to search, and search, and well search some more. Several hours of searching, reading, reading some more and well crying, I found it! A rainbow amongst the storm clouds. I found Tutotial and it gave me the help I needed!
I am now very happy to announce that my followers are all moved into the new digs. BUT!.....
There are a couple of draw backs to this wonderful pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
One is the newsletter ( if you have one) will no longer be an option. You will need to set up a different feed for that. Your followers may not be prompted to sign up when they link to follow.
Two, and this is a biggie.... if you access your old blog the followers widget link is broken at your new location.
My tears have dried, I am still concerned that I have no access to the old blog and I am unable to monitor it.
IMPORTANT! Before you follow the tutorial listed above. Please take care of everything you need to at your original blog, edit posts, delete photos, etc.
