Oh Dear, How Embarrassing!

Today I accidentally stumbled upon another blog with a similar URL to this one [the previous url, which has now been changed] - except it's on Wordpress, not Blogspot. And it contains book reviews, which is close enough in subject to make me uncomfortable. And it was established several months before mine, and is active.


So now, what to do? I don't want to crowd the other blogger's space, or cause confusion. Yes, I know, all's fair in love and blogging, but that's not my style.

So, I think I'm going to have to change the URL of this blog and hope, hope, hope that my followers will follow me over there. Not sure how to accomplish that. How to let them all know about the change, I mean.

Especially since many of them came from the Crusade and may not notice the change anytime soon.

Well, I've got a new blogger URL and will be transferring the pages from here to there. Hope to see you there. And I've reserved the same name at wordpress and livejournal, so maybe I won't have this happen again.

So sorry. What a cyber mess I've made. Grrrr.


  1. Let us know where the new blog is, and anyone who's following will tromp on over there. If someone doesn't see the post, then they're just a number and not a follower anyway, since that would mean they're not actually reading this blog.

    Another thing I recommend would be visiting each of your followers and notifying them in a comment.

  2. I agree with Christine. Also, let people know on twitter if you have an account.

  3. Yeah, it will be a pain but if you want people to follow, the best way would be to let them know in a comment. I'm sure many will head on over anyway when you announce the new URL :)

  4. I found a way, with blogger tools, to just move! I think it worked ... can you see me now? New url is
