The camel really didn't feel loaded; each additional straw was just that -- just a straw. Slightly bothersome, but not really. Taken one at a time, they really didn't weigh anything. But that last straw was just too much for the camel's meek and quiet spirit. She rebelled. And she found solace at Blogger. My HSB blog is still active, but I have to take a break from that platform for a while. It was either that or quit blogging altogether, and well, heh heh, you see how that turned out. Yes, I do feel like a traitor to HSB and to my dear friends there, but you can all follow me right here and we'll be fine. Just "follow" me, or add me to your reader, K? I was patient, really I was.
For anyone else who jumps ship, I have a techie hint for exporting/importing your HSB blog to Blogger. The instructions here at Blogger are rather simple. They are found here. When you export your HSB blog, make sure you check the box that allows all of your old HSB posts to be published on your new Blogger blog. There is a problem with importing Wordpress to Blogger, however. To fix it, go to the Wordpress2Blogger site, and follow the instructions. Just browse your desktop for the saved WP file and click on "convert". Now save that file to your desktop and discard the first one. Now go to Blogger and import the new saved file. All of your old HSB posts are now new Blogger posts, and they will be found on the "Edit Posts" page. If you forgot to check the "all posts" box when you exported HSB, you will have to individually publish each of your previously HSB posts. They will be listed in the "Edit Posts" page, but will not appear on your new blog until published. Voila'!
The camel is now a happy camper (I pity anyone reading this who is trying to learn English, lol.), a happy camper with two campsights to choose from.
