… and not sure where to go. (Please. Cue the Meatloaf! WARNING – not necessarily meant for little ears.) There’s music that never fails to energize me, and that entire album does it… even the slow, sad songs. It reminds me of college and three exceptionally dear girlfriends (two of whom I’m still in touch with)… and so much more.
But I digress – as usual. The title really speaks to something I’ve been working on in my analysis paralysis fashion for over a year. See… Chanknits just isn’t me anymore. Chan is still a knitter, even a very part-time knitting instructor, but it in no way speaks to who I really am. Just typing my blog address makes me feel guilty because I haven’t knitted in well over a week, and all those babies await handknits! (Never mind that only one has arrived, and he got two hats and a pair of the generous gMarie‘s baby socks…)
So, I’ve been fiddling around with potential blog names, blog hosts, and I was all set to move, maybe even today…
And then Blogger happened. See… I was going to move back to Blogger because WordPress is being mean to some of my friends. Seems if you’ve EVER had a WP account, they intend to MAKE YOU leave a comment under that identity, whether it is relevant, whether you remember your name or password or not. Likewise, at least one of those gal-pals has done similar battle with OpenID. Her email is linked to an account for which she no longer remembers… anything, so she can’t reset her password because she can’t remember her OpenID … ID.
All of that made Blogger look good, along with the little line they’ve slapped at the bottom of the trial blog I created long ago that says all content belongs to me. Then yesterday, another friend pointed out a proprietary problem she and Google+ are having. Pause and insert cause for concern. Then this morning, I’ve been unable to leave comments on SOME Blogspot (aka: Blogger) blogs. I get an error code and told to copy said code and go to some user’s group… no thanks.
The point of all this is I guess that leaves Typepad. I think they have a free version, but I’ve been advised to explore their … for hire version. It gripes me to pay for something I could get for free, but at this point, I’m so tired of Blogger and WordPress doing crazy bunk without warning and of not being able to comment or receive comments…
Stay tuned. Maybe I’ll have a new place soon… maybe I won’t. All input is appreciated.
What’s up for your weekend?
