Not sure what to do and need advice

Blog.com sucks (pardon my French)

Blog.com sucks (pardon my French)

Here’s the situation.  I started Teaching My Baby to Read on Blog.com, back in February 2011.  The Blog.com platform was always unstable and problematic.  Then earlier this year, all of Blog.com went down for almost a month! That’s when I made the official switch over to Word Press.

But what should I do now?  Should I leave the Blog.com site up? It’s really sad because my stats over at Blog.com were something like 69,000 unique visitors, and 250,000 page views. If you’re a blogger, you’ll understand the sadness of leaving that behind.

Does it hurt this new site to still have the blog.com version up, or would it hurt more to disable it completely?

I still haven’t fixed all of the links.  Sometimes you’ll be reading here and click on something, and it will accidentally take you back to the blog.com site.  There’re also bloggers and people out there who have my old blog.com site referenced and linked on their pages.

I really don’t know what to do and this is all very frustrating.  If any of my readers have advice, I’m all ears!

    Is there any program option for an automatic re-direct to your new blog if people select the old one?

    • Unfortunately, blog.com didn’t offer that on their dashboard. I guess I could have hunted something down on the internet, but that didn’t occur to me. I had a “moving” page up, but then blog.com was having problems again, and my homepage kept saying “error”.

      So I bit the bullet and deleted my old blog.com blog. I’m still not sure if it was the right decision or not. But I think I need to stop competing with myself. Right now if you Google “Teaching My Baby to Read” my old blog is still popping up. So random Google traffic was going to the old site first.
