I was dreading the day when the website tool I've been using for 20 years would become obsolete. Well, the time is nigh - so, here we go in blogger. I hope it will be fun, I hope it will be easy, and I hope people will be able to find us from our old domain name! I must say our old website had it's issues displaying properly what with all the various devices and operating systems online these days.
It will take some time for me to adapt to the loss of some of the features I've been used to on the Yahoo Sitebuilder site I have authored since 2000, but I'm sure I'll adapt. When we were so busy with several diverse projects on the boat we needed a lot of sub-sections off the main menu in order to organize photos and details about a specific project and the ability to indicate when there was updated information in any of the sections. Blogger seems to be a bit more straight forward and top-down oriented. Well, here it goes - wish me luck! 😄
BTW - this is not my first rodeo. Back when I first started the svdreamtime.com website it was on Yahoo's Geocities platform. When they phased that out, I ported to my own domain name and learned how to use the Yahoo Sitebuilder tool. Although I will lose the ability to update it pretty soon, I'm keeping that domain because it contains so much information and personal history. I have some links back to the old site under the column headings at the top of the blog, and of course, a link back to the full site too over in the sidebar.
Anyway, as the Cap and I get older we are less likely to have quite so much to show 'n tell so Blogger should be fine for our needs going forward.
