New and Improved Blog

Because Blogger is discontinuing support for FTP, I had to convert my blog from an FTP hosted blog to a Blogger hosted blog. I took the opportunity while I was working on the blog to convert it to the new Blogger format, which now allows me to use Blogger widgets, and update the appearance. Because of the change from FTP to non-FTP, the blog address has changed from http://www.wandsandworlds.com/blog1 to http://blog1.wandsandworlds.com. Luckily, through the magic of Blogger's conversion tool, all the old posts will redirect to their equivalent posts on the new blog!

I like the new look. Hopefully you can post links like to other blogs you recommend on the side bars.

Thanks, Natalie. I do plan to post a list of blogs. I had a manually maintained list a long time ago, but it got too hard to maintain because I had to republish my template every time I changed it. Now that I have the new format, the blogger widgets should make it easy.

I like the new format, too. On my end, it looks like everything is working the way it's supposed to.

Thanks, Christina!

I'm glad you are going to post your blogs. I'm always looking for the book review blogs that focus on mid grade & YA fantasy. There's so many blogs, it's hard to find the ones I'm looking for. I know you must read them.

I had to do this, too -- I threw everything into WordPress, though -- it still has a few hiccups, but it works. This looks good - very clean.

Interesting, Tanita. How hard was it to do that? I've thought about switching to WordPress, but am intimidated at the idea of having to convert.
