Another Challenge is coming …

Posted by on December 31, 2011 in blocks | 6 comments

I will be moving the Block Lotto blog to a new home in 2012.  I know that change is hard for almost all of us (me included), but I think it will be a positive change and worth it … for all of us.

It won’t happen right away, so continue to post here.  It’s going to take some time and effort, because:

  • I want to bring all we have here with us here.
  • It will take some time and effort for me to explore and learn a whole new bumch of templates, gadgets and plugs
  • I want to get things close to “right” as I can before we move to make the change as easy for all of us as possible when we make the leap.

In the meantime, as part of moving all your posts, in order to keep all the authors on those posts,  If you have ever posted here, I will be setting you up as a contributor or an author in the new environment.   Because our new home doesn’t have the same restrictions that we keep bumping into here and  everyone should be able to become an author.  If you have been posting via email and would like to continue to do so,  you will be able to do that, too.

I plan to use the same name as you have used on Blogger.  If you would like to a DIFFERENT user name, please let me know.  Because it only has to be unique in our area,  especially if you have a common name, you may have more options on our new Block Lotto site.


  1. I hope to be able to play again….2011 was a year of lots of change, and very little sewing. 2012 better bring more!

  2. ooh exciting! i'm looking forward to being an author so I can label my own posts 🙂

  3. Wow, sounds like a lot of work for you, Sophie! I'm looking forward to it. Hope you have a happy, healthy new year!

  4. Sounds good. Thanks for all you do Sophie!! I hope to get in on the February block.

  5. thanks Sophie – have received email notification from WordPress. I seemed to get caught in a loop on initial log in and had to change password – it would not accept the one provided in the email. The new blog certainly looks different! I hope it doesn't add to the stress too much trying to figure out the bits and pieces 😉

  6. Sounds good to me, Sophie. A lot of work for you, but if Cathy's comment means it's on WordPress, that is a pretty user-friendly system, in my experience (which doesn't include moving all that you have here!

    I'm wondering if you could leave this one here, maybe remove all the authors except you, but keep it as it is for a resource. Sharon Boggon did that when she moved her blog and everyone knows to go to the old site for the stitch dictionary.

    Just an alternative to so much work for you!
