moving is hard work

After 5 years with Squarespace, it's time for me to move blog hosts. I just can't justify paying for blog hosting (it's US$8/mo. at Squarespace) when there are so many free options out there. I hate to leave behind 5 years worth of posts, comments, book reviews & photo albums, but US$8/mo. is $96 + conversion, and that's a whole lotta lattes.

While free is free, Blogger does not have my FAVOURITE feature - the book list. So, maybe sometimes I'll just have to post reviews mixed in with my regular posts. What I really liked about the booklist is that it automatically searched for & linked to the book on Amazon, and then included a thumbnail of the book cover.

So I am working on importing my old blog here. The old posts will be text only, but at least I feel like I'm not abandoning 5 years worth of history. Not sure what to do about all the images, photos, links, book reviews, etc.

So here I am. Getting a feel for the new neighbourhood. And feeling ever increasingly like moving sucks. Even when it's only an e-move.
