There's an old adage that I've heard a few times, about not changing horses mid-stream. It's probably good advice if you can't swim, but it could be a good trick if the horse you're riding has been shot out from under you. While that is certainly not the case, I'm going to change horses and follow the exodus away from blogger to wordpress.
I want to do some things to improve the blog that I'm not smart enough to manage on blogger, but am pretty sure I can manage on wordpress.
In case anyone decides they'd just as soon not follow me over there, for whatever reasons, thanks for reading up to this point.
If I ever had any doubts about the importance of what I was sharing with the world, they've been comfortably put to rest. I posted the first article on this blog on 9JAN12. Since that time, I've had just shy of a quarter-million hits on the blog (221,152 as of 2150 MST this evening), have 120 "followers" and have been cross-posted in places I'd never have expected (with the exception of the StormFront link, to my pleasant surprise).
The blog has given me the opportunity to start teaching classes to some genuinely good folks, make friends and contacts nationwide, and even led me to moving TMO, HH6, and myself to a place I've wanted to live for over 20 years, but never managed to figure out how.
So, if you choose to follow, the new address will be http://www.mountainguerrilla.wordpress.com. If you don't, thanks for reading, and good luck to you and yours in the coming tribulations.
Somewhere in the Mountains
Postscript: I'm going to take my time, but I will be moving all the articles from this site over to the new address. Give me time, as I still intend to continue adding to the knowledge base.
