A quick note for people who have subscribed to the blog in the past to get updates.

There was no way to migrate ‘Followers’ on Blogger to WordPress so I lost touch with everyone who subscribed over the 13 years the blog was hosted there. Above is the last activity that anyone on that list sees for the blog which makes it appear abandoned.

RSS feed subscribers – alas this too ended when I moved to WordPress. Feedburner is not supported on this platform for me to transfer existing subscribers. People say RSS is a dying medium but I use it everyday and I bet so do many people but support seems to be discontinued.

A subscription for the new site was included from launch and it seemed to be working, I was getting updates in my mail box like above – but nobody else was.

I have installed a new subscription plugin and it tests ok so far (actually it didn’t work either, now on third widget). I will migrate anyone who subscribed to the new site circa 2019 and hopefully in future you will be getting notifications.

If you were on either of the Blogger subscription lists then sorry there appears no way I can link you to the new site. You can resubscribe or I do announce any moto tours I have done via the Facebook page which is perhaps how most people keep abreast of things now anyway.

In the current situation like everyone I am trying to maintain sanity under the restrictions. I have been working on the blog most days and still finding things like this that need fixing after the transfer. If you are bored then try moving your blog to WordPress – guaranteed to keep you busy during lockdown.

Thanks for you continued interest in my travels and amateur writing. Will be riding again as soon as possible.

Regards, Warren.

  1. I recognise that snippet is from my blog page. I’ve just gone in and fixed it up for you.

    • Hey Steve, thanks for that, I had seen it on a few blogs including yours showing a year since updated then last night realised actually nobody was getting any updates from my blog since beginning of last year, haha, every day is training day with WordPress.
