Pulled the plug on my Typepad blog (3 posts)

    Well, I finally did it. I pulled the plug on my TP blog. I went to the site & clicked Cancel Account with trepidation. I worried that there was perhaps something left on the site that I hadn't exported or some piece of data that I might need.

    But even if there was, I was ready to get on with my blog life & it was time to cut the cord with 2 yrs. of my blogging life. And I think I'm a better person for it. Actually, I'm joking but I do feel good getting free of my blogging past.

    And now, maybe Google will stop listing my old format TP permalinks in searches & start finding only my WP permalinks.

    Well done! So how long have you been with WordPress now? I switched over in November 2004 from blogger.com (and before that LiveJournal) and have been *very* happy.

    So when I did my import I pulled in posts from both blogger.com and LiveJournal. Was actually all very easy!

    I've been w. WP for just over a month.

    My import was so complicated that I've written 2 entire posts about it. Tonight I wrote this one: http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam/2005/06/using-mod_rewrite-and-htaccess-in-a-typepad-to-wordpress-blog-migrationthe-agony-and-the-ecstasy/
