Blogging My Day Away

I’m a lot of things. A biker, a writer, a tinkerer, a little professor, I’ve even been known to take stuff apart and put them back together again just to see if I could. Sometimes I could, and sometimes… Well, we won’t talk about those other times. I’ve spent the better part of the last couple of days getting theprodigalscribe.com ready to move my blog over from WordPress.com.

This is a move I’ve been wanting to make for quite a while., at least a year. The website was getting ready to auto-renew for another year and it wasn’t getting very much traffic where my blog is getting substantial traffic. A decision had to be made. The longer I waited the harder it was going to be.

BloggingOne huge downside is losing the stats from the old site where I had nearly 200,000 hits since day one. Although I was able to bring over all the blogging posts I’m essentially starting out here with the inital TPS traffic.

There’s still some things to be done. Like moving into a new house and you keep finding things that need to be done to make it livable. The move is done… now’s it’s that darned housework.
