Update: Today.com

>> Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Today.com unlocked me so that I was able to leave a "follow me" on Rocket Scientist (the now defunct version) and they restored my follow me link on the old Ask Me Anything. Remember that I will NOT be transferring my posts from Rocket Scientist (there are 194 of them) and you'd all be better off if I just made a handy dandy link reference. Which I will. When I'm back from travel and am not so swamped.

I am pleased. I didn't really want an ugly episode between the platform I first blogged on and myself, and I wanted to move on amicably. I hold no ill will toward them and certainly not for the exceptional community they've built.

    Glad to have you back Stephanie!

    I suppose it's a silly question, but could you not export your posts from Today.com? Perhaps they don't allow it. I agree with you that there are many excellent blogs there - some of my favourites.

    I'm glad you were able to have your follow-me link. I tried to leave a comment there yesterday before I knew what was going on and was unable to. Anywho... welcome to blogspot.

    Good luck. I have a sneaky suspicion that I'm on my way over to blogger as well. We'll see, but if they don't take care of Mr. Adsense, I don't know what I'll do.

    I've really enjoyed blogging, Richard, so I'll find a home somewhere.

    A., I have no intention of removing ANY Rocket Scientist posts. Never did. I will make up a link list, in fact, of those old blogs that will take the interested back to their old home. Soon.

    Thanks, Davida.

    Melissa, please don't do anything my account, but I'm happy to find you wherever you may be.

    It would be because of Grizz, the proverbial cyber bully who continues to highlight all of my blog's inadequacies. I've complained, they said they'll take care of it. I'm surprised I haven't been booted, must be my traffic because my attitude is snarky.
    I can't imagine what you did to get locked out, but clearly, this will be a better platform for you anyway. I don't need $1 per 100 words and I really should be on a free platform as well so I don't have to deal with the BS that comes with belonging to a network.

    Thanks for the update and that Today.com let you back in so you can update your readers and get them heading to your new home. I have already changed the link for your site in my blog roll.

    Exporting posts wouldn't remove them from your old blog unless you deleted them, but would enable you to import them into blogger if in the right format. If you still want traffic going to your Today blog, that's a different matter. It was just a suggestion.

    One wonders what led to that? Perhaps they're figuring out that locking out too many of their popular bloggers is not good business sense?
