Last Post on Blogger – Winner CSN Giveaway

Quick Update: Feb 21, 2011

Today I’ve partially transferred successfully the IntenseDebate comments after several attempts and methods!

This move generated hundreds of broken links and I need to update also hundreds of comments. So next days, I’ll be fixing all this stuff, one by one.

Later, finally! the new theme ๐Ÿ™‚

See you!


Quick Update: Feb 14, 2011

Today I was re-doing the categories + tags (it was a chaos) and really I donโ€™t know why those posts sent, automatically, pings again.
Sorry to all those bloggers that received those pings! I’ll disable them in next changes.

By the way I’ve failed, till now, in importing the ID comments both plug-ins didnโ€™t work. I’m waiting an answer from ID support with other way to do it.

I’m putting the new WP house in order, settings more plugins and finally install the new theme. The actual theme is provisional.

I really want ending the set-up soon and start once more blogging normally more visiting other bloggers.

Thanks for all the feedback received till now!

Gera – out!


Just a quick note: This is the last post I’ll do on Blogger. In very few days I’ll migrate to WordPress.
I want to thank a lot for all the WordPress tips and general advices, on my previous post!

Tomorrow or after tomorrow, I’ll switch to for few hours/days, depending of the propagation-time of my domain to the new host.
Warning: On that time, till the end of the propagation, this site perhaps can get error or act weird.

After that, I’ll import my posts with comments on Blogger, then applying the correspondent steps/plug-ins. Later, the correspondent comments done on IntenseDebate system.

Since September 2010, I’m waiting ID support to delete thousands of duplicated comments, but I can’t wait anymore. I’ve deleted one by one, by hand…before proceedโ€ฆ@#$%!!

The new WP home will have all the posts and comments transferred (really I hope so!) – but I know I can lose comments on the roadโ€ฆ..
After the migration, I’ll clean the “dust” on following days, without the new theme (layout) applied. Therefore the blog will like very basic, with a default WP theme and then, finally, I’ll apply the new theme! ๐Ÿ™‚


I’m ending some days before planned, the CSN Giveaway. I need to move on with the new WP platform.

Including extra chances, they were 162 possibilities till today.

Using to select 1 lucky winner, gave to me………….

And the winner is Comment # 86 corresponding to shala_darkstone – Congrats!

I’ll contact you for the data to send the giveaway.

Thanks everyone for participate and more giveaways are coming!

Congrats Shala…and good luck to you Gera. Hit WP quick, and then do help me win the battle of code! xo


    Thanks Deeba! I’ll need having my own learning curve with WP, but I’ll try to do it fast as I can ๐Ÿ™‚


Many thanks Barbara! The transition was a bit complicated, now it’s resolved – my next first post, it’ll be about it!


    Gracias Barbara! This new look is provisional till I end all the WP-stuff I’m doing. After that, I’ll install a new theme ๐Ÿ™‚


Congratulations on your move to WordPress! Very exciting and you did a great job. The blog looks awesome.

Way to go with all of our entries for your giveaway!


    Thanks Tia!! The transition wasnโ€™t painless, my first new post here will show the unconventional way I needed to end the migrationโ€ฆbut I did most of the same. Still remaining the move of ID commentsโ€ฆI donโ€™t know the resultโ€ฆ

    I’ll apply the new theme in several days/1 week. I’ve picked your suggestion and after visiting & exploring them, I’ll put Headway theme!

    Now I’m fixing broken links, pages, categories and installing plugins. Some of them need internal moves like backups with WP-DBManager, a little tricky; I’ll read carefully the security installation with enough time.

    Thanks for coming by and I hope visiting you again asap ๐Ÿ™‚


Good luck with the move Gera! ๐Ÿ˜€


Good luck moving to WordPress! I’m sure you’ll love it! ๐Ÿ™‚


    Many thanks Kristi! Yes it’s much better ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry if I sent you several pings – I hope this was fixed with the new plugin!


Hey there Gera, loving the new layout and look of the blog, my apology for taking so long to stop by ๐Ÿ˜‰


    No problem Karen! Thanks! We are all busy ๐Ÿ™‚

    This isnโ€™t the new definitive layout, I’m waiting the complete transfer of the ID comments and then I’ll apply the new one. ID needs to send me a special file to transfer. The standard migration procedure with them, failed completely, I need an alternative ๐Ÿ™
    Sorry I’m not visiting you; I’m stopped networking to have time to end all the WP-stuff and later can return to normal – mood soon ๐Ÿ™‚


Yeah! Still remember your move – my time and my bugs now, to be fixed ๐Ÿ™‚


I know that the move was necessary – but I didn’t want the migration – btw still I didn’t end it…

Thanks for your good wishes ๐Ÿ™‚


Thanks so much Larry! Yes hope to be in normal-status soon ๐Ÿ™‚


I hope it will go smoother Gera, moving in general is not that easy. Good luck!


Thanks Jennifer! The look is provisional I’m waiting to transfer the ID comments – till now I’ve failed. If I can’t transfer them in some days I’ll apply the new theme anyway. And yes techno-dust is worst haha ๐Ÿ™‚


Where and how do I find you?


    I’m still here, fixing posts, links and comments….
    You can contact me always via form, email or on twitter / facebook.
    Thanks for coming by Rita!


I see you are making good progress. A ton of work for you I know.

Best of luck Gera. Have a great week!


    Yes you’re right slowly I’m moving on, lot of things to fix on these days – I hope to end soon and start blogging again!
    Have a great week also ๐Ÿ™‚


We’re anxious to have you back!! Glad it’s progressing well. =)


    Many thanks Belinda! I’m anxious too to end this boring work and start blogging again!


hi gera! how are you?


    Hi Nice to see you again ๐Ÿ™‚

    Finally! I’m ending the full transition, plagued of problems and with tons of comments lost. I’m starting writing again next week slowly to post in a week, my first big article explaining in details all the process of the migration. Thanks for coming by!

The change is always full of pain and lots of uncertainty. But its great that you’re moving to WordPress and native commenting system. I’m sure you’ll get all the returns of the pains you’re through now.

Wish you best of luck and welcome to the OUR WORLD!


    Hi Suresh,

    You’re right the change was complicated and with several unexpected problems, till recently inclusive.
    Solving most of them were a hard task! Yes I don’t want other commenting system – I prefer the original one ๐Ÿ™‚

    I suspended many times my first “new” post for diverse issues, hope posting it, finally soon.

    Thanks a lot of for the visit and tweets! Enjoy a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚


hehe, don’t use bloger, use wordpress its a much better blogging platform!
