Hello world!

This was WordPress’s start up blog post that I am now using to say that I am trying to reestablish my blog on my own server. My blog was over on the Tapestry’s sever but we had a problem with that server (i.e. it crashed) and I had to reinstall everything for the church. I had been wanting to set up my own url again and decided this was the time. Only problem is that I am having a hard time migrating all of my blog over to the new site. The SQL database backup wants to send everyone back to sptapestry.org.

Because I love the movie “The Outlaw Josey Wales”

I have installed, uploaded the backup, experienced the problem, erased everything, and started back from scratch three times. I have even tried importing a modified sql export file into my old blog over on wordpress.com. No dice. It has been very frustrating. But I will endeavor to persevere.

I think I have figured out another work around that I am going to try next. I am going to establish a temporary blog on the church server for the purpose of importing my backup sql database into it. I think this might work since the problem with sql database backup file is that it leads my blog to point back to sptapestry.org in an endless loop where i can see the content but can’t reach the blog admin page and thus can’t add anything new to the blog. We’ll see what happens.

You’ll know if this works by the fact that this post is still here and the post below it will no longer be from 2009 (which is the case right now). Of course, noone knows that my blog is here now, so you probably won’t know if this works or not till I start re-posting my blog posts in various places (i.e. Facebook & Twitter).
