I am jumping on the bandwagon like a few other bloggers (The Daily Sweat) and making this blog into its own domain:
Don't worry! The switch should be seamless. Anyone still going to http://swicyclorun.blogspot.com will automagically redirected or will see the same exact content.
If you are NOT a follower through the "Follow" gadget on the right side of this blog, but you follow me through google reader or some other reader, either click that "Follow" button and become a follower (I will give you a prize if you are my 100th follower!!!...its like caller # 9)...or! update your reader to follow http://www.swicyclorun.com
No worries if you are already a follower. But let me know if something goes wonky!
Apparently in the switch I lost my "Triathlon and Running blogs that I follow" lists. This is easy to replace, but annoying.
So google has really stepped it up over the last few months with better spam control and now this. I turned off my CAPTCHA (the word verification) when you post a comment to this blog. I have had ZERO spam since the new spam controls were put in place. Have you? If not, I would turn off your word verification as *I think* it is no longer necessary!
Also, I am seeing some kickass traffic tracking features under "Stats". Tells me my page hits and where people are being directed from as well as other traffic features.
If you want to go from yourblog.blogspot.com to yourblog.com, do this:
After logging in via http://www.blogger.com
- click on settings
- click on Publishing
- look for custom domain info. Should be right there @ the top
It is $10 but super quick and easy. Doing this gives you access to Google Apps and a whole slew of other things that I am discovering.
Let me know if anything is wonky by either visiting http://www.swicyclorun.com/ or http://swicyclorun.blogspot.com/
I can use the feedback!
P.S. I finally finished up my Race History page. Takes awhile to do all of those links! LOL! Recipes are next....
