There are two things going on here: (1) I’ve wanted to be at WordPress for a long time, but it was complicated. When I exported Switched At Birth from Typepad to WordPress, all was well as long as I didn’t cancel my (paid) Typepad account. If I did, all the photos would disappear on the WordPress clone; (2) I’ve felt for awhile that the Switched At Birth moniker had run its course, that what I do blog-wise is simply memoir on-the-fly. I like the sound of that; it’s not some huge tapestry. It’s just memoir. On-the-fly. Whenever I feel like. Not when I don’t.
So here’s what I (finally) did: I uploaded all 8 years of blog posts from Switched At Birth to Blog2Print.com , then downloaded the PDFs they helped me create, organized year by year into Daybooks, printed them all out, and put them into pretty soft yellow binders.
Then I cancelled my Typepad account, which is an irrevocable move. Ta. Da.
