My Latest Lie

Wasn't it just yesterday when i told you all that i would stop posting about the site upgrade?

You didn't believe that shit, did you?

Apparently, people arent getting notified in google reader or bloglines that the site is being updated. It has something to do with the fact that i am redirecting my old site name over to my new blogger name.

I KNOW that there are people out there that do this for their site, and it works fine.

Can someone who is clearly smarter than me fill me in on what the Hell i did wrong?

If i can't figure this out in the next day or so, I may just bite the bullet and use my blogspot address.

ARGGGGH!!!!

Edit: Cross out my previous "ARGGGGH!!". Got it all worked out, nice-like. :) Thanks all for testing for me.

First I read about your swtich at Earl's, so I came here to offer my help, then I checked my reader and I've got 17 new posts from you. As far as I can tell everything os working, or you've made a change in the mean time and got it to work before I even noticed something was wrong. : ) Looks good over here, not much of a change, hopefully everything works better for you and blog life is a little easier...

thanks paige!

yup, you guessed it. in the time it took earl and i to post, i figured out what the problem was.

i was actually about to head over to your site to ask you to test.

thanks hon!

I think I had a lot to do with it working properly. Holla!

B.E. Earl said...

OK...now you've got to find out how to move your Haloscan commentes over to here so we can all see all the old comments.

It can be done. Ask Diva.

earl: you think it can? i mean, i know a way i could do it, namely putting in the HTML line i used to put in after each post on the old site, but i dont know if i want to do that for each damn old post.

if she's got some kind of automatic way, then i'll definitly do it.

To add your Google Reader feeds to your site to create a blogroll, go to Layout and Add a Page Element on your sidebar. The item on the top left is "Bloglist". Click that and follow the instructions to import the feeds from Google Reader to the widget. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

i am the diva said...

sorry i wasn't able to help you in time, but as you said - i'm busy looking after our love child. lol.

glad you got it all figgered out.

Slyde said...

earl: yeah, i was looking at the blogroll thingy... i wasnt sure if i wanted to put it up, but i probably will. i DIDNT realize you could import your google blog tho. When it looked like i had to add all the blogs to it again, i said screw it. I'll have to re-look at it.

diva: no problem. It all worked out in the end. How is little Slyde, Jr doing anyway?

Slyde said...

Kl: welcome! and yup... all straightened out now :)
