I’m Moving — to Blogger!
First of all, let me apologize for the serious drought in posts as of late. My sickpocalypse sucked away all my blogging energy (and, actually, most of my other energy as well).
But now, as I’m pretty much over the plague and as I prepare for my next two speaking engagements, which are both on platform & online presence building (one this week at Scribblers’ Retreat Writers’ Conference in beautiful St. Simons Island, Ga., and one at James River Writers’ May “Writing Show” in Richmond, Va.)—I feel I need to make the switch from WordPress to Blogger.
Nothing against WordPress. It’s not you; it’s me. Really. I’ve been happy here for nearly two years, and we’ve had a good run.
It’s just that a few of the social networking things I need to do with the blog, I’m not able to do on WordPress. Not without hours of headaches (some of which I’ve already endured) and potential costs, which I’d rather avoid if I can . . .
. . . and I can, on Blogger.
There, I will be able to connect my bajillion blogs I follow as well as my Google Friend Connect widget right on the home page of the blog. This will make following and interacting between bloggity folks much easier.
Anyway, I hope all my loyal followers will make the trek over to my new digs and swap out following me/subscribing here for following me/subscribing there. It may take me a little bit to get settled in—and I’ll likely take my favorite posts from here with me—but I hope to see some familiar faces.
Here’s the new address: www.rickischultz.blogspot.com
And WordPress? I hope we can still be friends. :)
