Subject: 6th Floor Blog moves to Wordpress
“It only took me like two weeks, but now the blog is finally on it’s own domain. And I moved it to Wordpress!”
“So long Blogger! You know, you’re probably going to take an SEO hit for this.”
“Search Engine Optimization.”
“I thought you found that process to unindex and forward everything from blogger?
“I found some stuff, but it’s rather clunky and not going to work perfectly. Especially since so many people out there have their links set to the old place.”
“Well, probably not that many. Hopefully this move will help us really get a fanbase and a following and all that silly stuff. Wordpress rocks right?”
“It’s alright..I’ve never been a huge fan of it myself. I did learn some css and php redesigning the templates for the blog though.”
“You bringing the Twitter feed over?”
“No. I never updated it anyway.”
“Twitter sucks anyway. It’s not like we do anything interesting that needs to be updated like ohmygod immediately.”
“I can schedule posts with Wordpress apparently, get a queue up and not have to worry about it.”
“Because you’ve usually got enough posts written for that? Aren’t you usually scrambling just to update regularly, never mind in advance?”
“Hey now..I’ve been updating pretty well in 2009. And maybe being able to advance schedule posts will get me motivated.”
“Anyway, the design is still a little rough. Lots of work to do on it. I’ll get to it though, it’s functional now.”
“Well, that’s the first step.”
“I see it didn’t copy over the links. Ha..Not it on copying them over.”
“Ugh. Well this is the perfect opportunity. If anyone out there had/wants a link on our site, they can contact us again now. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Since I’m working on it anyway. Then they can put our updated link on their site, and boom, instant SEO boost.”
“Over/Under on how many emails she gets?”
“Way to show confidence in the blog guys..really.”
