In with the new, and in with the old

1 Jan

It’s a shameful almost-secret that once upon a time, in the dark ages of the blogosphere, I started my blogging career at MSN LiveSpaces.  It took a couple of years before I conceded that I’d outgrown that platform and switched over here to WordPress.  My old blog stayed behind, mostly neglected (except by spammers).  There was no way to easily download the posts or import them to WordPress.

A couple of nights ago, my sis gave me the heads-up that MSN is phasing out LiveSpaces and was encouraging everyone to migrate their LiveSpaces blog to WordPress.  Even better, I could migrate everything to my existing WordPress blog.  Which I did.  And so I now have all five years of my blogging history in one place.  Anything posted before January 17th is from my LiveSpaces days.  I guess I shouldn’t be so hard on LiveSpaces now that they’ve given me a way to take my history with me.

It’s strange to go back to read some of those posts and see how my “voice” has changed over time.  Even though it’s only been five years, some of those earlier posts make me feel kind of… old.  More mature and a little wiser, I hope.  But still leaving lots of room to grow, of course.

I hope you all had a wonderful transition into 2011!

    Teehee… should I be ashamed that I’m the one who introduced you to the MSN LiveSpaces? Nah… there are actually still some features from that ol’ blog that I miss, but that may just be because I got used to working within its confines.
