MyFordDreams moving, but still on Blogger

OK, so if you read my blog, you will know that I've been having technical problems this week. And I've been reading others people's blogs and comments, as well as receiving e-mails from fellow bloggers, letting me know that it wasn't just me. Apparently Blogger was having problems with servers or something?? But I had considered moving MyFordDreams to another service or ending it alltogether. Gary The Garage Guy even offered to host my blog on his server, Thank you Gary.

But I've decided to stay with Blogger, and have decided to continue MyFordDreams in a new blog MyFordDreams2. But not satisfied with that alone, I've gone a little nuts, and created some campanion blogs for MyFordDreams2, there will now be Non-FordDreams where I talk about ineresting Non-Ford vehicles and AlternativeFuelUniverse where I will discuss things like BioDiesel, E85, Ethanol, Hydrogen and Hybrids, simply from an enthusisasts point of view. So now I will have 3 blogs of my own and hopefully still contribute to The Blog for Auto Bloggers also .

Now I've moved all of my links from the sidebar to the new blogs, so actually anyone who had one link from my blog, now has 3 links. I would hope anyone who reads my blog will bookmark my new page and if you subscribe to an RSS feed, make that update as well. Now I'm not saying that you need to bookmark all 3, my main focus will continue to be Ford, but I want to try and spread my wings a little and by having 3 blogs, not fill up one too fast.

I have no intention of deleting any part of MyFordDreams original site, hopefully it will remain as long as Blogger will allow. I may have to post something from time to time to keep it active, I don't know. So I hipe I'm not inconveniencing anyone too much or taking on more than I can chew. I've spent the better part of the day working on all 3 new blogs, transferring links and such, and anticipate starting up again Monday full force on MyFordDreams2

Wish me luck,

Joe -

Why not have My Car Dreams? and just have sections about each topic? You know, the way lots of sites post in categories like:

Industry News

You could do:

Ford Dreams
Non-Ford Car News
Alternate Fuels

Would be easier to update just one blog. And easier for all of us to read just the one. Yeah, I know, I have two, but the second one is a collaborative effort :)

Shawn, thanks for your support. Today started MyFordDreams2 and the others.

Bob, your point is well taken, but there are a couple of minor problems. First I had thought of posting under different sections, but 1 I don't know how, 2 I don't think Blogger has the feature and 3 it wouldn't help with the blog becoming clogged and full so quickly.

And I'm just not comfortable posting about Non-Fords in possative light on a blog called MyFordDreams. I know it probably doesn't make sense.

I plan to concentrate most of my efforts on the Ford blog, but as of today, the others have more new material on them.

I'm asking people I have link exchanges with just to update the Ford link, but if they like what's on the others, they can log there too. I have all of my links from this blog on all 3 of the new ones.

I'll have to see how things shake out. But MyFordDreams will always be my primary page.

Sorry about the inconvenience, but they're all up and running now.
