What kind of problems do you see using the Webmaster Tools?
OK. Here is the gist of it (including a few problem points):
1. I have had a blog at Posterous for many years. In fact, until just a couple of hours ago, http://douglerner.com went to my Posterous blog. I changed the DNS and now my Posterous blog is just http://douglerner.posterous.com and douglerner.com and douglerner.net go to the same self-hosted blog.
2. In March, Posterous announced its acquisition by Twitter. They were not encouraging at all about what will happen to Posterous in the future, and they stopped answering support requests, the service has slowed down and they closed their support forums. The handwriting is all over the wall. Since March I have been looking for an alternative to Posterous.
3. So I created douglerner.wordpress.com because WordPress.com has a Posterous importer. And I imported everything there. I tried and tried to use wordpress.com, but there are some big issues (to me) which prevented me from using them. Among the issues were (1) lack of any control over subscribers/followers and (2) bugs with email notifications, such as invalid links being mailed.
4. So - recently I created my self-hosted wordpress blog at douglerner.net and have been posting there as well. The reason both look the same is because just today I again deleted all the content at douglerner.net and imported it again from douglerner.wordpress.com.
My goal is to stop using Posterous and also stop using WordPress.com.
BUT... there is a problem.
The import from wordpress.com to my self-hosted blog isn't perfect. Of the over 800 media files (mostly photos) imported, almost 700 are still linked to the wordpress.com site.
All the media uploaded ok to douglerner.net, but most of them are "unattached" media, with the links in the posts themselves going back to wordpress.com. I can't think of a solution to this problem (it's not just a matter of search-and-replace URLs).
So I think I have to keep the douglerner.wordpress.com site as a "media repository". I posted about this problem in another forum thread earlier today.
I would like to stop using both Posterous and WordPress.com, but I am stuck at the moment. At least as far as wordpress.com goes.
But I did get my self-hosted site working well, with post-via-email using Postie and nice notifications using Subscribe2 HTML. Those work BETTER than wordpress.com's versions.
Anyway, getting back to the current thread. I suppose I'm making a big thing out of nothing with regards to the URL. I just thought it might be nicer for the URLs in the email notifications and on the blog to go to douglerner.com rather than douglerner.net, but it's probably not so important.
