If anyone panicked at the title of this post, don't worry, I'm not shutting down Classical Carousel. But after 5 years with Blogger, I've decided to move this blog to a self-hosted site. Blogger has been an adequate platform for these years, but lately, as I've acquired more computer knowledge, I've found it to be somewhat inflexible and a few glitches in the last little while have frustrated me into moving. The latest glitch is very annoying and is taking up way more of my time than I can afford; Blogger will let me sign into my blog, but when I'm here, it doesn't recognize me so any replies to comments I make must be done as if I'm a stranger and I have to validate each and every comment. I also am prevented from commenting on some of your blogs. In spite of searching for a clue to fix this mystery and sending Blogger feedback, I've received no help and this frustration finally pushed me to my new site which I've been mulling over for awhile.

So I'll introduce the new CLASSICAL CAROUSEL !!! Please follow me over there. I'm in a little bit of transition in that I've transferred the posts and pages on this site over, but it will take time for me to change some of the links and some of the information didn't transfer over so I'll have to reconstruct what I think is important. But all in all, I'm feeling very positive about the change.
If anyone has transferred their site to a self-hosted site, I'd love it if you could give me any of your experiences and/or tips in the comments. While I'm excited, I'm also nervous as to what this new step will bring.
In any case, thanks to all of my readers for following and reading my posts. I've had a blast on Blogger and will continue to have even more fun on the new CLASSICAL CAROUSEL! Come and join me!
