Monday, February 15, 2010 :::
I'll probably never quit my blog, because I'm selfish and attention-starved and I crave validation. Also, I have a bad memory lately so I need to have a place to write everything down and I'm too exhibitionistic to do it in a private journal. But sadly, I have to go on a brief blogging Hiatus because Blogger has decided it will no longer support FTP.
This means I will no longer be able to post, which means I will most likely have to transfer this big bad boy over to Word Press, which means I will need to figure out how in the hell Word Press works and then design myself a new site, which means I have a ton of stuff to figure out. Stupid Blogger.
In the meantime, I've posted a ton of crap below that's been sitting around on my blogging dashboard, half-finished and half-hearted, in order to tide anyone over who might need the occassional dan fix. Just don't read them all at once or you'll be hungry again way before dinner.
I'd would say that planetdan will be back soon, bigger and better than ever, but it will probably be pretty much the same when all is said and done. Maybe even worse for the wear, depending on how well the migration goes. If I can even figure it out at all.
Wish me luck.

Hey, I am an editor for WordPress who happens to read your blog, so I'm thrilled to hear you're going to be family. (I'd offer help, but I'm no good with initial technical support. I help bloggers get more publicitiy/traffic.)

Dan, you are a happy little cloud.

I'm in the same boat with 2 of my blogs. If I have any hints or tips I'll let you know. I think you can import your blog from blogger into wordpress though so it "sounds" pretty straightforward... whether it actually is, is another matter entirely.

You are never coming back Daniel, I just know it. It is the end of an era and now I am sad. I will miss your big face, goofy grin, and your sweaty dancing. As your old email re: line used to say.."I love you, Dan"

Don't leave us for too long Dan, I'm dying for your opinion on the men's figure skating portion of the winter olympics.

Hi Dan. Thought I'd come out from lurking and say "howdy" from KS once more. Hope the transition goes well.
