It Came To This

Yes, it came to this. After almost 7 years of having the Bat Cave at my original blog, the issues with Hughesnet prompted me to start from scratch. Sort of.

I know it's a colossal pain in the ass to change links and RSS Feeds, but honestly? It's one minor inconvenience compared to an entire ISP not being able to access the awesomeness that is the Bat Cave. When you look at it like that, it really wasn't much of a choice.

The good news is that I have migrated my entire archive, so all the glorious wonderful content is now here. Also, I have plans to keep up the "old" blog indefinitely because I know a ton of you have linked to individual posts I've done over the years, and broken links give us all a sad.

On the bright side, my URL makes more sense now. No more pesky underscore to try and remember. And really, doesn't "Wendy the Super Librarian" just have more of a ring to it?

So sit back, relax, and enjoy. Oh, and welcome Hughesnet people!

Lovely new place you have here. :D

BevBB said...

Yes, it looks so nice and lived in. As opposed to a blank page.

:D

Wendy said...

Katie: Yeah, it looks just like the old place! I literally just stripped down the "old" blog, so hopefully it will be really obvious to people that I've moved.

Bev: Hiya Bev! How nice to "see" you. And BE seen!

Alright, updated my subscription just so I can keep up with the goings on in the Batcave.

Nice place, sorry I forgot the housewarming gift. Where's your bathroom?

Rosie said...

As one who has linked to the old site often, I appreciate your thoughtfulness. OTOH, woo-hoo on the new place. I'm off to fix my SL feed right now.

Wendy said...

Jami: Down the hall, first door on the right :)

Rosie: Yeah, I imagine the old blog will exist for quite some time just because of the issue with "old" links. But the "old" blog definitely has an "archived" kind of look now, and I've put a notice up on the side bar that I've moved, should someone discover me via one of those "old" links.

Kris Kennedy said...

Congrats on the move! Looks great. And the same, LOL, so I love it.

Wendy said...

Kris: Yeah, it's identical. Just a different URL. I imported my archives on Friday, so I've "lost" some of the more recent comments. Trying to decide if I want to import again....although I'll probably just let 'em go.....

Tara Marie said...

Looks good, and I've already changed my link :)

Liza said...

Added your new blog to my favorites. Now must update my blog roll on my blog.

Nikki said...

Looks really nice. And I want your model's legs. And body. I'll trade mine for hers.

Wow.

It is just amazing to finally get in here without difficulty.

Leaving a successful comment maybe too much excitement for a Monday morning.

Pace yourself Chris. Maybe lie down with a cool wash cloth on your forehead if you start to feel overwhelmed :)

I'm likin' the new digs, Wendy! Strangely, it resembles your old place... ;-)
