End times are near

February 20, 2010

The migration is almost complete. Soon traffic will be redirected to our new home at TopIdolBlog!

If you haven’t yet opened an account on the new site, or even if you’re a lurker who enjoys reading and not commenting, I beg of you. Check out the new digs. You may have noticed I’ve been posting on both sites for the past two weeks. I know I suck, but it just ended up that way.

Although I’ve been writing this for almost two years, I’m still amazed anyone reads it. Amazed. You have no idea. Since I have developed a following of sorts and have achieved some status as a D-list Idol blogger, this was the next logical step. Plus, throwing up some ads and getting into some affiliate programs will (hopefully) help me make a little extra cash. This blog has definitely become a second job of sorts.

Obviously, I fear losing the traffic and search rankings associated with moving, so all I can really ask is please! Keep reading! Keep coming back and tell your friends to do the same. And if you like something, Digg it! Delicious it! Yahoo! Buzz it!

I would also like to thank those who donated a few bucks after I threw up the PayPal widget. I felt strange doing it, but again, I am so appreciative. The money donated has gone 100% to the new costs associated with hosting the site, as well as upgrading to a pro template. As I regularly call out scammy bastards who fleece money in the name of “charity”, I have no problem providing where the money went in regards to getting the new site up. Again, I thank you guys so much, those who donated, and most of all, to everyone who bothers reading my shit blog 🙂

    Don’t know where to put this, so it goes here:

    Can we embed video at the new site? (I tried to and it didn’t work)

      Thanks Deez. Kris makes a great DJ, but I hope he will be too busy touring and recording, to take it up as a profession, for at least the next 10 years.

      Good, I am not alone… I too, did not know where to post this.

      A three-year-old lamenting over Justin Bieber. Yes, sobbing.

      This child applies the same rationale for obsessing over Justin Bieber as Sparkle Cows do for their obsession with Lambert, verbatim.

        Well that was frightening.

          No kidding. This girl is gonna have serious, serious problems in a few years. How the hell does a three year old get that way? I have a 3 yr old niece and she plays with barbies and coloring books…I doubt she even knows what a “Justin Bieber” is.

          I agree with her about one thing….the fetus makes me want to cry as well.

          That was just wrong.

    I feel kind of not smart right now, because I literally read you here almost every day and I didn’t know about the move. I think I’ve been reading you almost the whole 2 years- go me! See you all on the other side/site~

        The purple monster = your kimberly. The one with the AP calculus son, and the one that hopefully writes coherently from time to time. I hope I’m kinda not smart, well not ever.

          Pahaha ok that’s what I thought…wanted to be sure though! You write coherently. At least compared to the shipping babble that comes out of my mouth, or since this is typed, keyboard.

    Love it! I have no problem except when I want to reply to someone directly it won’t let me. Thus, the comments wind up being from bottom to top which sometimes confuses me. I’m old skool in preference for top to bottom where the later comments are the last ones.

      I miss the direct comments too.

    For some reason the feed isn’t working in my Mac Mail. D: It makes me sad.
    But hopefully if I just yell at it or something it’ll work. Feeds aren’t that complicated.
    I’m excited! =D

    (FWIW I don’t give a rats ass if you use the donations on cigarettes and booze…as long as Oskar’s happy, lol)

    Awwww. I’m excited for you to have a new home! I really like the new blog. The banners are lovely. My only issue is it won’t let me subscribe by email. I’m kinda obsessive in the way that I like having all the comments sent to my inbox so I can keep up with the conversation. I bid adieu to wordpress! I will attempt to promote you to my snark-loving friends!

      If only all my posts migrated over when I imported. Not even close!

        Awww! Can you transfer them? Or would that take forever and a day?

      It should let you subscribe by email. I wonder what the problem is? Did you try?

        Is the only way to get the comments is via RSS? Is it the same as email?
