All Change

Regular visitors will be aware that Martyn and I each have a blog. In addition to this we have a video vlog. We also have a website. There are links at the top of my blog that lead to pages on this site. I can no longer update the website pages as the software that I used to build the site is no longer available. I have had to rewrite the site about three times due to companies withdrawing the means for updating this site but much of the material is still valid.

We wanted to try to bring together all these online elements so we decided to link everything using WordPress.

The problem in switching platforms is that regular readers are used to finding and following blogs from particular links. For this reason, Martyn and I will keep our Blogger blogs active but posts will act as a bridge. Here there will be posted a brief summary and a Read more link that will take visitors to the full version of the post on WordPress. Visitors can choose to place comments on whichever platform they prefer.

At the moment the transition is a work in progress so if you come across anything that doesn't work please let us know.

I do hope that the changes will not put you off and that you will continue to visit and comment as we really do appreciate your support.

  1. I’ve been contemplating a move to Wordpress and have a rarely-used blog on there. What you’re going to do is a good idea. I’ll see how it goes for you then may copy you in the coming months 😌

  2. I had a blog on WordPress but I didn't like it. Because it is difficult to change the title, it is necessary to write in separate places and it is difficult to transfer the text. In addition, I had problems with the photographs, their size. Of course, the blogspot is not ideal, but it is more convenient, in my opinion. I hope you don't have such problems, Sue.

    1. We've been using WordPress for a while for other things, Nadezda such as the Sowing, Harvesting and Diary pages linked from the top of this blog. We seem to have got along with it OK. Martyn thinks that the images are clearer on WordPress, personally I don't see a difference but his eyesight is better than mine. I guess it boils down to what we are used to.

  3. I tried WordPress but after much frustration resizing photos, moving text about, and other inconveniences over several months I gave up and returned to Blogger. Blogger isn't perfect, especially when they change things, but, for me, it became better the devil you know. Good luck!

    1. Martyn really becomes really frustrated with Blogger, Deborah. To be honest I don't mind either but we wanted to bring things together, hence the change.

  4. I moved to Wordpress several years ago and have never regretted it. They all take a little time to get use to. Commenting on Blogger can be problematic even with a google account.

  5. My wife and I have both used Wordpress for some time now. I tried Blogger for a while, but liked the flexibility of Wordpress better.

I am getting quite a lot of spam. It is not published and is just deleted. I have stopped sifting through it and just delete any that ends up in my spam folder in one go so I am sorry if one of your messages is deleted accidentally.
