A change is as good as a holiday (or necessary, even)

I'm currently in the process of getting a new website designed (early in the process but still). I'm pretty sure that the new site will be WordPress based and that pretty much means converting the blog to WordPress as well. After some poking around the internet the less than exciting news seemed to be that one can only import blogger content to WordPress if your blog template is new blogger based.

Phooey. So, I have finally had to give up my claw hold on my classic template and convert and this is the result. I'm sure there will be tweaking etc in it's future but it's about as close as I can get to the old blog for now. Hopefully the white posts backgrounds are easier on the eyes anyway. So welcome to the new (for now) look Crossed Wires! Short may it reign and let me know if there are any issues you find!

Unless you know someone that can write a program to parse your old export file and import it, etc.

Lots of wordpress themes out there, too.

The stuff I read made it sound like converting old blogger was too hard basket. So now I have new blogger and yes, next step is to decide whether to jump to WordPress on my own temporarily or wait...decisions, decisions! I shall be calling on you for appropriate tech support : )
