I thought I had this blogging stuff nailed when I took John’s advice and used IFTTT (If This Then That) to simulcast my blog posts from Blogger to WordPress. Things seemed to be working so well until the other day when I wrote a post on Blogger as usual and then checked WordPress to make sure it was there.
It wasn’t so I checked IFTTT to see if the applet was running properly. It said it was but I accidentally turned it off and then turned it back on again. Back on WordPress, there was still no post from June 10. However, there was a notice that said I had reached my maximum storage and it shows that I have almost 2000 posts.
I didn’t catch on right away but then when I looked closer I realized that IFTTT had resent ALL the posts from Blogger to WP going back to 2015!! Looking at the number of posts for each month showed me that November 2016 for example had 79 posts! Even during the A to Z my max number of posts is one a day and not even the whole 30 days! That means that some of those posts have triplicates!
It is going to be an exhausting task to try and fix this. As if that’s not bad enough, on Blogger I notice that a lot of my pictures are not showing up in some posts. Can’t figure that one out either because that same picture will show up in a different post. I’d say I’m tearing my nails off but I’ve never been one to do that. I like my nails.
Anybody ever have this problem? Got any quick fixes? Would you come find me if I started all over? I’m using this as a test post in a way. If it doesn’t convert to WP then I may just give up on Blogger and only post on WP since that’s where my 198 followers are. I hope my 27 Blogger friends will forgive me.
