Torn between two blogs

So, I’ve been dumping some of the old entries into Blogger over the past few days, and I gotta say…I love it. Dang, this is easy. A HECK of a lot easier than Rapidweaver.

So, what was I doing not doing this a long time ago…like, maybe two years ago?
Sheesh.

Did I mention that sometime take a long time to make crucial decisions?
It’s an issue.

So, now the debate in my head is what to do with all the old blog entries from the old blog. They’ll hang out in cyberspace as long as I let them, I suppose. But I’ve already dragged them along once before (moving from iBlog to RapidWeaver…) and I’m really not thrilled about doing that again.

I supppose I will probably do it “hit and miss”…maybe importing some that seem especially important to keep around.

If there are any old entries near and dear to *your* heart….let me know.

We’ll see how this goes….EF

Previously, he was pastor at Northaven UMC in Dallas for seventeen years. Eric loves to write on topics of spirituality, social justice, music/art and politics. The entries on this blog reflect that diversity of interests. His passion for social justice goes beyond mere words. He’s been arrested at the White House, defending immigrants and “The Dreamers,” and he’s officiated at same sex weddings in his churches, in defiance of what some believe is Methodist teaching. Eric is an avid blogger and published author, and 2017 recipient of the prestigeous Kuchling Humanitarian Award from Dallas’ Black Tie Dinner. (Human Rights Campaign) Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He’s a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named “best judge” by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County, and is currently the longest service district judge in that district. She was re-elected for a fourth term in 2018. They have the world’s best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy.

  1. I think you'll find that it works quite well. I've been using blogspot for a couple of years. From what I've heard from people who have used other hosts for their blogs, it's more reliable and easier to work with than most.If I had known you were going to have a new blog address, I would have included a link to it in my Splash Award. But I've updated your blog address in my blog list, and I hope some of my readers look at what you write.

  2. Thanks, David. I am certainly finding this to be true so far. The interface is just FAR easier to use than the box-based software I was using. As with many life decisions, I end up thinking "why didn't I do this months ago?!"
