I am pleased to announce the transfer of Indie Business Blog from Typepad to WordPress!
Since launching my first blog in 2005 on a Movable Type, I have launched this blog and this one, each on a different platform, in an effort to select the one that I felt would most appeal to you.
I settled on WordPress because it offered hundreds of themes and plugins so I can easily and quickly make the blog more interesting and fun.
For the next few weeks, things will be in a state of transition. For example, because Typepad only allows customers to export blog text, you will notice a lot of blank spaces where photosgraphs and graphics once were. Thank you for being patient while the photos are added.
By the way, if you are thinking about launching a blog for your small business, remember that, while Typepad is versatile and easy to use, if you ever want to export the content to a different blogging platform, they will not release the photographs to you. (As you might imagine, I have an opinion about that little policy, but I'll save it for another post.
For now, I want to welcome you to my new blog and invite you to have a look around. If you get a moment, would you please do me the favor of letting me know what you think of the new platform? Is it easy to use? Appealing? What would you change? What do you especially like? Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
