Well I have moved my blog to my own server. I have actually wanted to do this for a while because it is much more flexible and more powerful. But on tuesday it become necessary because wordpress decided that my blog was just advertising. I am sure they did not read it, because as most of my readers know there is very little advertising on here, and tons of great content, IMHO.
So I went off to recreate my blog. I was able to install wordpress.org on my server with ease, took under a minute. Then I found the theme I used before. Then I started to look for my old blog entries, I was able to find over 100 online, and I have been reposting them into this blog using the original posting date. For most of the entries the old cached version did not have the photos so they are missing now. So far I have taken about 25 of my most recent entries and a few of the older more popular ones and put them back up. It will be a long process to put them all up, and some older, less relevant ones will not be reposted.
With the new location I decided to go with a new name, more of a brand name…. “The Biz Guy” is great, because that is what I want to be about business, but I wanted a more edgy name than the “The Business Blog” I was able to update all my feeds to reflect the new location. I will no longer get the 100-200 people a day I got from google, maybe google will find the new location, but I doubt it.
If you have linked to my blog, please update your links. I really need the traffic now.
Thanks for the 2 years of readership.
