In leiu of a Think About It Thursday post, I wanted to address an email I received recently.
One of my very kind (and awesome) followers (thanks for following everyone!) dropped me an email about my URL. I changed the name of my blog about 1 1/2 months ago, but I'm not all that internet savvy, so I have no idea how, or if, I could change my URL to match the new blog name without losing my followers and such. After some research, it seems like I could change the URL, and have the old one redirect my new followers, but all of my links will go dead.
The last thing I would want now is to lose my followers or any of the traffic I get. If I were to change the URL and redirect, it would take a lot of work to fix all the dead links, so what do you guys think??
Should I just stick with what I have, even though the URL doesn't match the blog name? I've seen a few other blogs that do this and it doesn't seem to cause any trouble.
Or should I put the work in and figure out how to change my URL, redirect from the old URL, and fix all the dead links?
You guys are the ones who come here and read my stuff, so your opinion really matters.
*CONTEST REMINDER*On another note, my New Books in the New Year contest ends tomorrow at midnight, so if you haven't entered yet, make sure you do. Currently, there are going to be 5 winners with 15 books (aside from the two grand prizes) to choose from.
I'll attempt to post the winners the next day and I'll be emailing them, but it could take a little longer because there are tons of entries.
