New Site is Almost Up - I Already Hate GoDaddy

Well the new blog site is coming up, and it was a little bit of a headache to import all the posts over. I'll be spending the next few days rearranging things, fixing the spacing, minor coding, and adding back more widgets onto the blog. I'm wondering if I should just redirect everyone to that one now or later. I still have a few more plugins I need to install yet though, and I'll list everything I put onto the blog so you guys can flame/advise me on what else would be good for the site.


As for why GoDaddy is giving me headaches already is from the Wordpress import feature. Apparently when I try to import from my domain it times out trying to connect to https://google.com, which was due to not having SSL or some sort of thing. So the roundabout fix was to import everything over to Wordpress.com, and then port that into MoneyNe.ws.

Also trying to find an easy way to add some 125 x 125 ad slots onto the sidebar of the new home. Any have some ideas for that one? Anyways, if you haven't already checked out the theme I picked out, go check out my future home, and let me know what you guys think. I found the theme over at Brian Gardner's site, and the footer section I lopped off for now to fix later, but I'll need to add it in to give credit to him. Anyways, back to fixing up some blog posts for me.

On your 125x125 ads you may want to look at my series on "Big Honkin' Ads" that I wound up today. It might give you some outside-the-box ideas.

I have 125 x 125 ads on my site and would be glad to give you a code. You just need to edit which images and you will be all set. :)

I tried putting up a few 125x125 ads so far, but I don't think the template likes having 2 in the same row. They look a little weird just by themselves too.

All the best for your new home. It's looking pretty cute at this moment. Few suggestions - Make room for 4 125x125 ad slots probably. It looks balanced. The top commentators' links are not in place unless you have purposely did that. As much as possible, try to keep both sidebars balanced. I will try to fix it for myself in new year. Wish you a very happy new year buddy!

I don't use godaddy hosting - especially not for anything that needs mysql. I use them for domain registration but thats it.

I hate GoDaddy even more right now because of the fact that my blog on my domain is now down because of the MYSQL thing. Arg.
