Eating More Fibre...Or Do I NEED Help Moving BLOGS In the Morning?

I sit here and I do not have time to write anything. I've been out of town, I've been volunteering, I've been decorating, I've got laundry piled up, movies to watch...and NOW -- I'm dealing with the POSSIBILITY of moving my primary Blog: http://360.yahoo.com/mombie61

Yesterday, I spent WAAAAAAAAAAAY too much time moving a YEAR'S worth of blogs on my Yahoo! 360 Page to some document files on my computer. I still need to clean the files up and move them to disk, but at least from here on out I can write EACH individual blog on a .doc file and then transfer it. I ALWAYS preached this practice to others....but failed to do it myself most of the time. WHY WOULD I DO IT NOW, YOU ASK???? Only for one simple reason -- NO ONE at Yahoo! seems to be willing to give the bloggers an answer to a simple question: Is 360 STAYING, GOING, MERGING, UPGRADING? Will bugs be fixed? We are completely being ignored.

My 360 blog is a different blog. It is my "GOD" blog. I've got my formats that I'm comfortable with, my tags set up...my friends.. Sure, I don't have many comments, but at least it is all together.

So yesterday, I played Salvage Truck....

Tomorrow, who knows.

I just know I have spent HOURS and HOURS writing and Yahoo! is NOT GOING TO TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME!!

As you know, I don't use my yahoo 360 the same way you do. I've already printed out the blogs that I wish to keep for myself. I CAN NOT imagine what it must be like for you to have such wonderful work and not KNOW what will happen to it.

I know I went completely BONKERS when my photo host site went belly up with NO WARNING whatsoever after I had used them for well over 8 years with NO trouble at all. It took me over a week to finally get SOMEONE on the phone who knew what to do. It took me another week to complete the transition for over 800 photos.

I think you are doing the right thing by taking it upon yourself to guarantee that your blog works will not be "lost" in cyberspace.

If Yahoo goes BUST, I guess I'll just start using my email more often. I have to say I'll miss the avatars. hehehehe
