How to move your blogWith over 50,000 readers per month, The Vandal had to move house to handle the traffic. A big job, but a heartfelt and sincere thank you to you all for making this change absolutely necessary. So The Vandal’s last post on Google’s Blogger platform had been made and from now on The Vandal will be living here on WordPress.

Naturally, I am trying to make the migration as seamless as possible for all my wonderful readers, however, it may take a split second or two of your time if all my ‘fail safes’ don’t necessarily do what they are supposed to do. You know how technology is.

If you have subscribed to The Vandal’s posts, you should still get them as normal. But if not,  click ‘Subscribe in a Reader’ on the left where you will be give a range of choices.

If you have the Vandal in your Bookmarks or Favourites, it should redirect you here, but it may be wise to add this new address to your browser. Sorry.

For email subscribers, there should be no interruption, but if there is a problem, go to the email subscription box on the right hand side of this page and enter your email address.

Should you have arrived at The Vandal by sheer accident or fluke, welcome! Grab a cup of coffee and take a look at what’s going on and don’t forget to subscribe before you leave!

To all my readers I would like to thank you so much for reading, interacting, commenting, disagreeing, arguing and agreeing with me on this blog. It has been the most wonderful three years. So onward and upward. I do sincerely hope you will join me on my new blog platform and enjoy the changes, improvements and stumbles the The Vandal makes as he settles in to his new home.

While there are many enhancements to the blog, one of the major benefits is in commenting. You can now reply to individual commenters, which makes for great conversations. In addition, you can also add a link to your own blog posts at the end of your comment. A great way to improve interaction between bloggers.

Anyway, the postman, telephone company, insurance broker and all the ‘Big Brother’ websites have been informed of the move, so it’s time for The Vandal to get to work.

Thank you all again for reading The Vandal.

    Congrats on the move!

    I keep looking at WordPress but get so stressed at the thought of it that I try to put it from my mind for a while…

      It is a bit of a monster Shirley. I had a ‘test’ WordPress blog for about two years before I finally made the change. It helped in getting familiar and knowing what I wanted to achieve. I just imported my blog posts in to it from time to time and experimented until I felt confident to take the final plunge.

        Thanks for that, Derek. I’ll try to get to grips with a test WordPress blog.
