Well It has happened

Windows Live Spaces stepped over the edge and pushed us to make a decision.  At first, I tried Wordpress and was so frustrated the first 2 days I almost gave up... So I started to blog here.

I sent several heated e-mails to the folks over at Windows about the wordpress problem, finally received an answer a day later and was able to finally merge everything today... So all of my old posts are over at my new wordpress page: .
At first I had a problem where I could see all the old blog posts, but the photos did not appear.  Finally today everything worked itself out and after many clicks and double checks, and walking away from frustration, I was able to calm down enough to think about posting a blog. 
I am now in both spots....Wordpress, and here.  I am now in the process of adding all my WLS friends so we can keep in touch.. I'm still not sure of the process but I am open for any and all help.
For those of you that knew me there as Samuel J Frog, welcome! I hope it won't take long for all of us to adjust our ways of thinking and posting.
I have yet to try the windows live writer here, but I am told it will work for both blogs....I hope so.  I am a little disappointed in that I am not sure if we can add video links, photo albums etc.   But hopefully, I will learn to use this quickly and be able to customize this the way I did my WLS.
Hugs and Love to all my WLS friends!

Wordpress and it's problems

I am totally frustrated with Windows Live Spaces and  I clicked on the link to upgrade my window live sspaces to wordpress,  decided on a name and password, entered my e-mail address and got the "You will receive an e-mail in 30 minutes to activate your wordpress account".  Well, it's been over 24 hours and I still have not received that e-mail!  I don't remember what title or password I used, but I did click on another link to download all my blogs and associated photos to my computer.  Hopefully all the mean e-mails I have sent to MSN will result in an answer soon. 
In the meantime, I will blog here, and on Windows live spaces until I can no longer get on that page.
I hope all my friends from their will eventually contact me so I can add them here.

I Hope this works!

Okay so this is my first Blog here.  I have no idea how this site works so this is just an experiment in futility.  I don't have any idea why WLS wants to screw u a good thing but they have been jerking us all around for some time.  Hopefully someone will come along and teach us all how to edit and personalize these sites.
For all my WLS friends who get this, Hugs and Love and see you in the funny pages!
