Moving To Wordpress

This is my final post on Blogger. Many of you have probably heard the ruckus this week about changes to the policies here. About a week ago, I received an email from Blogger about policy updates essentially kicking off all blogs considered adult/with explicit content. If a blog had content that fell into that category it would be forced to turn private. Which would just about kill all traffic and anyone being able to search and find my blog. Why even have one at that point?

I've been here since 2011 so this was not good news to hear. I proceeded to setup a Wordpress account with all of the difficulties involved in transferring content. Now I'm hearing that Blogger got such angry feedback about these changes they have switched their stance. A recent update states that adult blogs can stay but must have the adult content warning and comply with the rest of their content policies.

Having already worked on setting up the new page and transferring everything, I'm still moving to Wordpress. This way I don't have to worry about if Blogger changes their mind again and I'm left backing up things in a frenzy. They can be Big Brother over someone else. If you have been following my blog I hope that you'll continue to do so over at Wordpress. And for any who had me linked on their blog, please update my URL. Thanks! Here is the link.
