Spaces Live is shutting down and asked bloggers if they want to migrate to WordPress.com. Like any obedient customer, I said yes and migrated the World Adventurers site to WordPress.com before Spaces Live terminates my account. Microsoft said it would fully migrate the blog, but only the past year moved over to WordPress! The rest seems to have disappeared into the Great Internet Recycling Bin. Yikes.
Good thing that I archived all of my old blog postings offline, or I would have lost them. I may repost some of the oldies but goodies. If I hadn’t done due diligence archiving posts over the past half decade, I would have been quite distraught over losing about five years’ worth of postings.
Thanks a lot, Microsoft, for warning us bloggers ahead of time. Hopefully WordPress.com will treat us better.
