Thankfully we have not moved house, but I have moved the Anglers Rest blog, and all 2000+ posts. I feel quite exhausted! Having procrastinated for several months I of course wish I had moved it earlier, especially as I now have to go through and add each post into my preferred, and newly organised categories.
In Blogger tags are called labels and when you import a Blogger blog into WordPress labels become categories which was not what I wanted at all. I am currently going through each post and tweaking the category/tag options. That task won’t complete overnight (or several hundred nights) I am sure, but all the posts are available and many are tagged as uncategorized.
That hasn’t been the only change. I have switched across the platform for the website that exists to accompany my book, Tracing Your European Ancestors. The reason is, I have signed a contract for another four books with another publisher, all with a European theme so it seemed sensible to tweak the European Ancestors site accordingly. The link is the same – http://www.european-ancestors.info and if I am honest it was dealing with that who change over last week that encouraged me to make the decision to move the blog.
Normally blogging service will resume shortly!
May we display your header here on our new site directory. As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.
Congrats on the big move. It’s looking good, Julie.
Thanks Jill, it takes a while to organise after importing, but I am getting there!

Julie, having moved a few work blogs I feel for you. I am not sure if there is a plug in for the WordPress.com version but for one of my self hosted blogs there was a plugin to change tags to categories or the other way around. Might save time. Fran
Thanks Fran. There is a tool that can help with the conversion, which I have used, but it understandably doesn’t allow you to tweak the switch over. It seemed sensible to have a little restructure too!
