Amazingly, I started Another Pint Please 10 years ago. At the time, I hitched my keyboard up to Google's Blogger, or Blogspot, as it was known. It was fairly intuitive, easy to use, and allowed me to post mobile photos from my Treo 650. Wasn't technology awesome?
Through the years, I've made subtle changes to the blog's format, but it has always been lacking. Let's face it, graphic design is not my thing. Also, anything "free" on the Internet never seems to stay around for long. Google Reader, I'm talking to you.
There was also one huge elephant in the room: my backlinks. I was worried if I ever did change platforms, my small connections on the Internet would be broken forever. So, I put it off and put it off and...well, no more.
So, after much thought, hand-wringing, too much coffee, and not enough beer, I decided to move to Squarespace. The move was incredibly easy. It even surprised myself.
I solved my graphic design problem by focusing on what I enjoy best, my photographs. Each post will (eventually) have a large image to go with the body. While everything has transferred from Blogger, there is some wonky formatting I'm still working through. If you find an error, or can't read something, please let me know.
Amazingly, I was able to effortless compile 1300 redirects in under 10 minutes in Google Sheets. Everything seems to...work.
I still have more tweaking I want to do, and things I need to add, like a bunch of links, but APP seems to be well on the way to its second decade.
Thanks again for your continued interest and support. Now if you will excuse me, I need to grab my camera and fire up the grill.
