Who remembers Bossy’s old blog design?
Bossy doesn’t either. But the point is, Bossy didn’t only switch designs, she also switched blog hosts. She used to be with TypePad, and now her blog is hosted by WordPress.
Bossy doesn’t want to get into the reasons for her transfer, she simply wants to draw your attention to this: Bossy was with TypePad for nearly three years, and during that time she downloaded and stored all of her post’s photos and graphics on TypePad.
This means that all of those TypePad photos and graphics now need to be downloaded and stored elsewhere, and Bossy has selected Flickr.
So what in hay is the problem? you ask?
Well. Bossy is one of those annoying bloggers who sinks hundreds of photos into each post–not to mention her photos of the day and photos of favorite things and photos of her family tree and photos of photos and more photos. And graphics.
And so Bossy needs to comb through three years of archives, and for each and every post she needs to find all of the corresponding photos on her computer and then download those photos into Flickr and then copy and paste the individual Flickr URLs into her WordPress posts.
And what in hay does this have to do with a Poverty Post? you ask?
And the answer is: you sure say What in Hay a lot, don’t you?
And the other answer is: because ever since Bossy launched her new design, she has been really lax about transferring her photos. And since she hasn’t transferred her photos, she needs to keep paying for TypePad, which means that Bossy is burning $12.45 a month.
So please excuse Bossy while she devotes a certain amount of energy and time each day to transferring her photos to Flickr so she can dump TypePad once and for all.
Because think of all the Netflix Bossy will be able to buy with $12.45 a month.
