As I mentioned, I have been thinking about changing the name of my blog & buying the domain. Well, deep down, I knew that this really was something I wanted to do & I knew that the name for the blog I wanted was the name that was on one of my other blogs – Dreams on Papyrus. After all, isn’t that what books are? Dreams? And, Papyrus is an ancient form of paper, so to me Dreams on Papyrus is the perfect name for a blog about books.
So, really my decision was made a while ago, I just didn’t know how to go about making it happen. I searched the wordpress support & found a section about changing the url for your blog & it said essentially was that all I had to do was change the name on my existing Dreams on Papyrus to something else, then I would be able to use that here, instead of ceinwenn. So, I jumped in with both feet & landed firmly on my backside! I followed the instructions & instead of changing the URL on the existing Dreams on Papyrus, as the promised it would, it just created a new blog – yeah, cause I need a 4th blog! Thought maybe I had done something wrong, so tried it again & you guessed it – I was now the proud owner of a 5th blog! Oy vey! And, when I tried to change the URL for this blog to Dreams on Papyrus it told me (rightfully) that it already existed, so I couldn’t use it. Then I thought about just deleting Dream on Papyrus, cause then I wouldn’t be getting a message about it already existing, only if you delete a blog you apparently lose the URL & it can never be used again – ever – by anyone, apparently. Boy, by that point I was about ready to just give up!
I posted a ticket on the forums (cause unless you own the domain you can’t contact wordpress support) & only got one answer – unfortunately he wasn’t able to help & seemed like he was more confused than I was about the entire situation! GRRR!
Then, about 10 minutes ago, I cracked it! I was able to import all of the posts from here onto Dreams on Papyrus! I didn’t know that was possible & I certainly didn’t want to manually copy & paste all of the posts from here over to the other blog, cause that would just be soooooo damn laborious! Not to mention the fact that it would look like all of the posts on the blog were published on the same day.
So, what I am trying to say is that: Ceinwenn.wordpress.com, as of today will not be used & everything is now over at Dreams on Papyrus. Please excuse the set up, the format is as it was for the old blog, but that will be changing over the next few days & it will soon look exactly the same as here. Eventually ceinwenn.wordpress.com will cease to exist, so if you enjoy my blog (which I hope you do), please come over to the new site – I’d love to see you there!
