Blogger, you've been good to me

Spindly, bare-branched trees have, seemingly overnight, burst into blossoms of pale pink and crisp, creamy white. And not a moment too soon. Spring, I love you.

Relationships – good ones – should change and grow with time. For two-and-a-half years you’ve given me a small space here in which to indulge a passion for food and photography. In the process I’ve learned much about myself, gained some previously unimagined skills and, most amazingly of all, found a community of like-minded individuals.

But this is no Farewell to Blogging (can you tell I’ve been reading Hemingway?). This post is simply a fond Farewell to Blogger. Blogger, you’ve been good to me, but a newer, fresher space is calling. Loudly.

The boxes are packed, the removal van is in the driveway and this little weblog is moving to a new home.

Come on over. The kettle’s on and there’s a tray of cookies in the oven.

If those of you who link to Nourish Me on your own sites would be kind enough to change the address in your link list, that would, of course, be wonderful.

Thanks. Can’t wait to show you 'round.

I've amended my links. Glancing at your Typepad archives, I see that you haven't (yet?) taken all your baggage with you.

Wishing you a smooth transition...

Lucy said...

Thank you, Cindy! You're so quick off the mark!

Have managed to export the entire blog. You should have seen me dancng around the house on Sunday - was so 'proud' of self for being able to do it without cursing or crying. Am still feeling my way around the new space and the archives, too. They are all there, I just need to figure out how to make them all show up at once...next HTML challenge...

I'll fix my link immediately. You're the second person in a week who has left Blogger - the other one went to Wordpress. I'm curious why you decided to shift?

Lucy said...

Laurie, you're a sweetheart!

I wonder who the other blogger was...Blogger have always been good to me - really they have, unlike many other people who have had some serious issues, I've been incredibly lucky. I just needed (and wanted) some change as the seasons shift and Typepad, well, it's so damn usable. I just couldn't make the changes I needed to with Blogger and my limited computing skills!

There will be some other changes (all in progress, thankfully) to be made with the changeover to a new platform. Stay tuned!

Congratulations on the move, Lucy! I just took a little peek over there and it looks beautiful. I'm sure your photos and entries will make it more so!

I've amended my links as well :)

Lucy said...

Ricki - thanks so much, darls! I'm quite excited about the new space - loaded with new season's possibilities. You wouldn't know it by the wind out there today, but spring is springing everywhere.

Cindy said...

That is definitely dance-worthy! I tend to enlist Michael as my reluctant techie for such things. :-D

Congrats on your new home, darling!

I will change the link after the kids are in bed tonight.

Save me a cookie!

Thanks PG. Have emailed Food Standards, too. I would not want to be on the receiving end of that Roquefort thrashing...

Katrina, I've grown to love a little space in which to ramble...hope you like the new home. I'm feeling my way through the process. Slowly!

Kim - cookies are saved! Hope Lucy and Edie are being good little 'uns. Does 'The Kids' include David, too? (Just being cheeky...)
