Uniform Resource Locator, you done done Bossy wrong
Uniform Resource Locator, you done done Bossy wrong
You sure is pretty, but you’re seven letters too long.
You just a dolled-up name for “Web Address”
You just a dolled-up name, man, for “Web Address”
So why does the look of you cause Bossy this much stress?
It’s not your Scheme Name, sugar, because HTTP is fine
No it’s not your Scheme Name, sugar, because HTTP is fine
It’s just a Domain Name problem, further down the line.
i am bossy is cool, but TypePad crowds the name
Yeah i am bossy is cool, man, but TypePad crowds the name
And Bossy don’t need no T-y-p-e-P-a-d, what a cryin’ shame.
But Bossy may lose her
readers reader if she changes her URL
No Bossy can’t lose her
readers reader if she changes her URL
‘Cause one day without her
readers reader is like a heat wave come to hell.
Promise Bossy you’ll Bookmark her new thing when she throws TypePad from her name
Lord promise you’ll Bookmark her new thing when she throws TypePad from the train
Because Bossy’s faithful
readers reader is her only claim to fame.
joeinvegas saysAugust 28, 2007 at 10:42 am
Going to http://www.iambossy.com to make it all neat?
Noelle saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:04 am
Oooh, I’m addicted to Google Reader
Oooh, I read your blog on my Google Reader
Please baby, keep your RSS feed current, and yeah, I’ll stay.
Heather saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:07 am
Girl – all you have to do is URL redirection. Ask the customer service where you registered iambossy.com about it. Your problems solved. 🙂 And if you have to – be BOSSY with em.
Lee Laughlin saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:16 am
Where ever Bossy goes, I follow.
I might miss a day or two until I get the RSS figured out, but I can’ts lives withouts my Bossy in da mornin’ (or whenver Bossy gets it in gear).
Avitable saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:32 am
Oh, I see. I don’t count as a reader. Harumph.
Howard saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:33 am
I, Howard, being of sound mind and body (short-term memory problems and prostate infection excluded), do hereby promise that I will, to the best of my abilities (which are as massive as my prostate was), move my love-link, my feed reader and my unwavering loyalty to all things Bossy when and if — at such time — that Bossy decides to move her URL to something ubercool.
Amem and bless the beast and the children, who I believe are the future so we should teach them and let them lead the way and show them all the beauty they have inside and not get hung up some much about the outside. And text messaging. WTF? Use English, bitches!
Erin saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:45 am
Just redirect the typepad URL to the new one. It’s like a single box you check somewhere on the new URL dashboard, standard issue. I did it, and if I can do it, well. Enough said.
surcie saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:47 am
I’ll be here after Bossy kicks typepad to the curb!
Busy Mom saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:50 am
I had to do that one time, if you write it, they will come.
Another vote from me for redirectionism.
Mr Farty saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:58 am
Ooh, I just typed http://www.iambossy.com and it brought me straight back here. That was quick.
dorrie saysAugust 28, 2007 at 12:07 pm
As If! I am powerless against bossy! Lead away…
maggie saysAugust 28, 2007 at 12:20 pm
Could you please record yourself singing the URL blues and post an mp3 for your reader(s) to listen to?
qt saysAugust 28, 2007 at 12:26 pm
No worries, I’ll be there…
bitemycookie saysAugust 28, 2007 at 12:31 pm
back in oh-five, i gave typepad the big EFFFFFF YOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUU. those jokebags are a hot mess. get a new blog provider, upload all your old shit over there, and voila! no more typepad for bossy. make you last typepad post up saying that iambossy.com has moved. old testament/new testament-style. yaunderdig?
if you bossy it, they will come.
Isabelle saysAugust 28, 2007 at 12:49 pm
I changed my blog from mondofruitcake.blogspot.com to http://www.mondofruitcake.com. I thought it would be easy. It was, actually, easy, but only after slogging through the mess that was the online help for both blogger and godaddy. Godaddy, I believe, _intentionally_ makes things obscure so that you somehow end up buying more of their stuff. Blech. But I’m addicted to your site since Blogher so will follow you to whatever url you go to!
Oh, The Joys saysAugust 28, 2007 at 12:57 pm
I will follow!
Jodi saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:04 pm
After paying for a year of typepad, my web host informed me that I can’t use jodianderson.com to host my blog … unless I want to switch to one of their preferred blog hosts. WordPress can suck my … Anyway, I feel your pain, Bossy. I feel your pain.
Oh, and of course I’ll bookmark you. I’ll even stalk you if it’ll make you feel special.
regarding your comment:
Yes, effective immediately. I said part-time or no-time. They haven’t responded yet, so I am working part-time. I expect to get the official response today or tomorrow. Either way, I don’t care.
And, yes. We survived the weather. Our county (Sauk) is in a state of emergency, but locally we weren’t hit too bad. Go a few miles in any direction and you’ll find flooding.
Cindy Z saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:06 pm
I will bookmark 🙂
madmad saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:12 pm
You can’t leave! All the plants will die! Eh – forget it; that’s probably too old a reference. Of course we’ll be there. I’ll bring the cookies! Eh – forget cookies. Wine. I’ll bring the wine.
orangeblossoms saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:13 pm
“Where you lead me, I will follow…
Any, anywhere that you tell me to….
If you need somebody to be with you, I will follow…. where you lead me.”
Name that artist…. (yes, before Gilmore Girls!)
I’m with you, Bossy.
PS How’s your dad?
The Domestic Goddess saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:19 pm
I will follow you…follow you wherever you may go…there isn’t an ocean too deep, a mountain too high that can keep, keep me away…
Sorry, got caught up in the moment. What were you saying again? Oh yes, moving. I’ll re-bookmark if you redirect. Okay?
mothergoosemouse saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:35 pm
Bossy will have to do more than change her URL to lose me!
deb saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:38 pm
Nobody bosses me like Bossy
but she could be jivin’ me too
amanda saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:45 pm
Armed with a map, headlamp, personal sherpa and a GPS unit and I still get lost, but Bossy, Bossy I could never lose.
srah saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:46 pm
So do we need to update our RSS feeds or will that stay the same?
Karen saysAugust 28, 2007 at 1:57 pm
You aren’t a him, but I will swallow you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxULYcZlEuM
christina saysAugust 28, 2007 at 2:03 pm
Will bookmark for food.
Preferably peanut butter/chocolate sundaes. And french fries. And maybe some Midol, cause, you know.
Angela saysAugust 28, 2007 at 2:25 pm
I would follow Bossy to St. Louis if that is where Bossy wanted to go. Bossy Rocks!
flutter saysAugust 28, 2007 at 2:43 pm
as long as you don’t change your URL to
ieatcrapforbreakfast.com I’m with ya!
motherofbun saysAugust 28, 2007 at 2:58 pm
I will follow you… I will follow you where ever you may go… (Ok. That just sounds creepy and stalkerish… Sorry. But if you decide to move, I’ll still read. There, is that better?)
Teryn saysAugust 28, 2007 at 2:58 pm
I’ve been thinking of moving, too, but I’m fairly certain I’d lose my 3.22 readers in the process. Bossy shouldn’t worry, though, because she’s much better at this whole blogging thing than I am.
Phoenix saysAugust 28, 2007 at 3:21 pm
Your own thing….I’m jealous. I’m thinking picking Blogger just wasn’t the brightest thing.
I’ll follow you and I’m sure others will.
Biddy saysAugust 28, 2007 at 3:33 pm
oh bossy, i would stalk…er…follow you anywhere!
Jen M saysAugust 28, 2007 at 3:40 pm
When’s the big moving day? I’ve bought a domain name for myself – just too chicken to move stuff over there…it’s scary leaving typepad or blogspot, or whatever it is that does the work for us. You’ll do smashingly, I’m sure.
We’ll all be there reading, as always!
Meg saysAugust 28, 2007 at 3:45 pm
Oooh, I want to sing the lyrics, what’s the tune???
Elizabeth saysAugust 28, 2007 at 3:59 pm
When Bossy Speaks, people listen! I will follow Bossy wherever she goes 🙂
Have The T-shirt saysAugust 28, 2007 at 4:25 pm
I’m like that kid in grade school you could never get rid of. Remember the one?
That was me.
MrsJLW saysAugust 28, 2007 at 4:32 pm
What the heck, redirect. I’ll warn the masses.
kerrianne saysAugust 28, 2007 at 4:54 pm
You, dear Bossy, are rad.
Happy! (almost) new domain change. Woot, woot.
mcewen saysAugust 28, 2007 at 5:10 pm
Well out of my [technological] league I’m afraid. But I’ve lots of those ‘you are being redirected’ messages which works fine for me.
Pete Dunn saysAugust 28, 2007 at 5:23 pm
Done and Dunn…
Ruth Dynamite saysAugust 28, 2007 at 5:29 pm
Whither Bossy goeth, Ruth Dynamite followeth.
Miss Britt saysAugust 28, 2007 at 5:34 pm
I’ve moved like a gazillion times now.
Ok, technically only 4. In less than two years. But STILL!
I think I actually gained readers with each move.
Now when I moved to FLORIDA and started talking about it constantly? THEN I lost me some readers.
Elvis Dingeldein saysAugust 28, 2007 at 5:39 pm
When did Bossy start talking (and/or singing) to herself in the third person? I’m new around here (redirected from Laid-Off-Dad, and she talks about herself in the 3rd person over THERE, too!), so I thought I’d ask.
Did you know the act of speaking of oneself in the third person is known as Illeism? I didn’t either, I just found that out just now! Elvis thinks he’s a genius! Until today, Elvis thought talking about himself in the third person was Just Nuts! Now he knows there’s a cool word for it, and that word has its own Wiki entry! Huzzah!
Momish saysAugust 28, 2007 at 6:24 pm
Show me the way…
BOSSY saysAugust 28, 2007 at 6:38 pm
Elvis: Living life in the third person may be a little off-putting but trust Bossy: she’s all the rage with the ventriloquists.
stella saysAugust 28, 2007 at 7:12 pm
umm. can’t you just do domain mapping…or something???
this is how I am both ‘anxiousaboutlife’ AND ‘zenproof’.
or all you going all PRO on us with special bells and whistles…and stuff.
‘wherever you go, whatever you do, i will be right here waiting for you’.
does that help?
Criquette saysAugust 28, 2007 at 7:43 pm
Bossy clearly has a future in songwriting. And tomato growing. So of course I will bookmark Bossy’s new thing so I can watch her hidden talents continue to unfold, like, maybe, knitting?
Les~ saysAugust 28, 2007 at 7:59 pm
Oh yeah…u know I’m gonna follow ya!
Chag saysAugust 28, 2007 at 8:12 pm
I’ll be there!
moi saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:01 pm
As soon as I find just the RIGHT pair of shoes in which to follow Bossy, I’ll be coming right along!
Her Grace saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:04 pm
Bye-bye Typepad. Bossy has loyal readers, yes she does.
Mary Alice saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:14 pm
Well, I dunno it’s gonna be a lot of trouble going into my element page and changing your address and all. I mean the LEAST you could do is pour me a glass of Sangiovese while I wipe the sweat from my brow and type all that new crap in….
ali saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:21 pm
it’s time to dump the chump…be gone, typepad…
Dawn @ Coming to a Nursery Near You saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:24 pm
seriously, woman – you have no fears that your loyal and faithful reader(ssssss) will follow you to the ends of New Joisey, at least. LOL
Dawn @ Coming to a Nursery Near You saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:25 pm
I meant (geez, what a dope I am) you SHOULD have no fears… we’ll follow like little lost puppies. LOL Where else would we get our photoshop crack?
Michael Bains saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:41 pm
Ha! You’ve got no worries on this score At All!
Go to https://iambossy.com and it takes you . . Here!
Try goin’ to http://sillyhumans.com …
And I can’t even email “thegang”, cuz then they’ll know I want it and actually be able to charge MONEY for the danged name!
I’m too cheap for that crap.
Enjoy the move!
NotSoSage saysAugust 28, 2007 at 9:52 pm
‘kay, I’m a dunce.
I saw “Uniform Resource Locator” at the top of the post and thought that you were trying to track down a Park Ranger uniform for OTJ.
Queeny saysAugust 28, 2007 at 10:35 pm
Catchy tune. I’m guessing there’s a
B.B. King influence. That’s enough to keep me coming back when you get that typepad monkey off your back.
Melissa in NZ saysAugust 28, 2007 at 11:03 pm
Typepad, schmypepad …
We’re right behind you! I need the Bossy brand of hysteria as part of my day!
Dan saysAugust 29, 2007 at 8:18 am
Bossy is in quite a pickle.
Hmmm … now I’m getting hungry.
Manic Mommy saysAugust 29, 2007 at 9:09 am
If you blog away, blog away, I will follow
If you blog away, blog away, I will follow
Domestic Goddess got there first so I went with a different line.
Also, Madman – it’s from Stripes – apparently I’m old, too.
Mrs. Chicky saysAugust 29, 2007 at 9:29 am
Fer chrissake, get your own domain. I’ll follow you anywhere, babe. Especially if you promise to follow me when I get my own domain.
OMSH saysAugust 29, 2007 at 2:12 pm
ever heard of .htaccess.
Where are you moving too?
Away from Typepad?
I know – I’m being a nosey butt.
BigMike saysAugust 29, 2007 at 5:24 pm
WildBill at PassionateAmerica.com started on blogspot and was worried about the same thing when he bought his own domain name but it was well worth it. Now he has talked me into purchasing some of my own domain names and moving away from blospot.
moosh in indy saysAugust 29, 2007 at 6:04 pm
Screw all this happy supportive stuff, it’s going to be scary as hell and you’ll lose sleep over it.
There, I said it.
the moosh don’t lie to bossy.
Erin saysAugust 30, 2007 at 10:12 am
I’d follow Bossy anywhere!!!!
suburban kamikaze saysAugust 30, 2007 at 11:10 am
Personally I find the whole “http” and “www” thing a bit off-putting as well. When will your newsprint edition be available?
Sparx saysSeptember 2, 2007 at 6:07 pm
Ah Bossy, don’t worry, we’ll come. We have no minds of our own. Or maybe that’s just me…
Beth saysSeptember 3, 2007 at 1:20 pm
Oh, you noticed me, your reader, me me me. I’m so happy! Can I get a photo with you?
Actually I am relieved because once I typed iambossy.blogspot.com instead of typepad and got a one-entry blog by someone extremely boring named Doris from San Diego. Ever since, my computer fills that in and I think it’s you and go there first.
Melissa saysSeptember 4, 2007 at 11:37 pm
Samantha saysSeptember 6, 2007 at 8:21 pm
Promise. Changing link now.
LOVED kitchen post btw.
