Migration worries

If you see me and I have a worried frown on my face, it's because I am attempting to follow the instructions of blogger.com as I have to amend the location of my blog hosting. Blogger.com are no longer allowing FTP publishing and I must migrate my blog before 1 May. They have provided an online migration tool but when you are a technophobe like me and have a large blog, going back to May 2006 with thousands of posts, you begin to break out in a cold sweat at the mere thought of doing anything which might make a total balls-up of it. And with my history with blogs - don't forget I had my blog stolen a couple of years ago - anything could happen. I'm migrating tonight so if you don't hear from me tomorrow via this blog, then something may've gone tits-up. Wish me luck.

As expected, the migration tool didn't work. Even though I spent hours on it last night. I'll try again today.

I've just found out that my attempts to migrate my blog have been thwarted by my internet provider who has a known glitch in their system and have no idea when it will be fixed. That glitch means that I cannot migrate and have potentially come to the end of the life of my blog as we know it today. You could say that I'm totally pissed off, but that would be an understatement. I am in the middle of sending some stinging emails to my internet provider. It won't make a jot of difference but it makes me feel 1% better. Gggggggrrrrrrrrr.

My internet provider came through after my stinging emails and assisted the migration of my blog afterall. I now seem to have migrated fairly successfully but I need to check a lot of my older posts and see whether any new posts are loading properly. I'm not out of the woods just yet.
