Migrating

After a lot of consideration and soul searching, I did finally decide to set up a new blog for Chertsey. There's nothing on it yet, so I'll not give you the address. Suffice to say that it's not www.chertsey.blogspot.com, which had gone. Now, I fully expected it to have gone, given, I thought, that there must be lots of people in that lovely Thames side town (village? suburb?) who would want to set up a blog to recount their doings there. What I didn't expect was for it to have been taken by someone in Korea... go on, have a look if you like. The really weird thing is that they use the same layout as me - and it's really not a very commonly used one. (I'm thinking of doing a study of Granny Button's blogroll to see what other Blogger bloggers favour).

So, before very much happens with Chertsey, I intend to migrate all my blogging activities (including any on Warrior) to the new blog. It just seemed sensible, as most of the news over the next few years will most likely be concerned with Chertsey. Naturally I shall try to keep posting irrelevant bits and pieces too; all the sort of stuff you know and love (!) and hopefully even more... although somehow I feel a kind of duty to be more serious where there's a (nearly) seventy three year old big Woolwich concerned.

This is nbWarrior's 851st post. I had hoped to hit 1000 by the new year and swap over then, but my recent laziness has ruled this out. Still, it was only an arbitrary figure anyway. Eight hundred and fifty one posts isn't bad, is it, over, let me see, three years and eight months. Meanwhile, I'll get my virtual spanner and screwdriver out and start tinkering with my other account and hopefully have it all up and running in time for the next bit of Chertsey news.

It's been delightful following your wonderfully well written Warrior blog, Sarah. Congratulations on reaching 851 posts. Thank you for keeping me and many others informed and entertained. I, for one, look forward to the new blog, and I'm sure we'll all get used to your "new address"!

Halfie said...

I see nbchertsey.blogspot.com is still available - don't you want that?

Sarah said...

It's not what I chose... but perhaps I should snaffle it just in case someone else does :)

Sarah said...

Now snaffled.

Chertsey? Chertsey! It's not going to be as good as the old blog we've grown to know and love ;)

P.S. The Comment submission word verification was: 'Cobterse' That is a very good word, I think, for which a use must be found pronto. Could it describe a state of being stuck upside down with your head down a machine room hatch [or like the very small Utah housewife who nearly died after being stuck for 30 hours upside down in an air vent in her home after attempting to clean it: I kid you not]?

OK, it's not the butchest name ever given to a 'Town Class' boat, but it's mine and I love it. So no sneering!

I give up.

It's not motorchertsey, or motorboatchertsey, or gucccochertsey, or narrowboatchertsey...

Sarah said...

Oooh. Prize for the first person who guesses!

And the prize goes to Mike, who's already found it and become a follower. There's faith for you. Of course it's not actually hard to find in the light of the above comments....
