Week 14

This post is supposed to be written on Monday but I was so busy with work and I have no time to open my blog after I got home. I almost forgot what happened last week but I kept a note of everything in my BuJo.
  1. I didn't get BTS concert ticket :( I successfully placed the order in my cart and checked-out BUT I chose the wrong payment method. I chose BCA KlikPay and since the website traffic was really heavy, the payment failed and my ticket expired 3 hours later. OMG I was so heart broken. The ticket was right in front of me, I had the money, but I couldn't pay it. Lesson learned, next time I better pay using Bank Transfer! 
  2. There was a problem with my youtube earnings/google adsense thing.  I couldn't see my money from my March earning in my Adsense account. I contacted Youtube support team and they explained a little bit but I still think that it didn't answer my problem. I guess I'll have to wait until 18 April and contact them again if there's still no payment.

  4. I took Cody to get his 2nd vaccination at the vet. He was well behaved at the vet, a little bit scared of new environment. When we were inside, the nurse (?) held onto him and he screamed and crying as if someone was going to kidnap him. lol. I guess he's scared with new people. But when the vet shot him with the vaccine, he didn't cry at all. lol. My puppy is so cute :D
  5. Cody is allowed to eat fruits now. His first fruit was Papaya.

  7. Went to First Friday Mass and after that we went to my sister ex-high school to have lunch. I had Ketoprak. If you want to eat real Indonesian food with the best taste, go to local school. They have the real Indonesian Delicacies :p
  8. Went to Palm Sunday mass, can't believe it's Holy Week already!

RSS Feed problem with Bloglovin

Here's another Tech Talk. So after I successfully migrated from Wordpress to Blogger yesterday, I found another problem. My Bloglovin Feed is not updating my blog. It doesn't show my new post that I wrote using the new platform.

I contacted Bloglovin support and they said my RSS Feed is invalid (you can check your feed here).

I googled the problem and could not find anything at first. Then someone mentioned that the problem is the geolocation in one of the post. Bloglovin cannot recognize geolocation so I removed my location, and voila! The feed is valid now. I'll test it after this.

Moving From Wordpres to Blogger

Today I will share my experience of migrating my posts from Wordpress to Blogger. It is not as easy as migrating Blogger to Wordpress or to (self host).

The reasons I want to move my blog to blogger :
  • Because opening wordpress is really slow from my place. It takes time to load the wordpress admin interface. I don't know why but maybe it's my internet connection or maybe my hosting.
  • I know a lot of people are migrating from Blogger to Wordpress for growing their blog, I help a lot of people to do that. But I just want to have a simple blog. I am not planning to grow this blog bigger. 
  • I already own a wordpress blog, I know many wordpress capabilities, I'm a Wordpress theme designer after all. lol. 
  • I always want a Blog
  • But I have to say, moving posts from Wordpress to Blogger is not an easy job to do. In Wordpress, you can use a plugin to migrate the content from Blogger. But what if you want to move your blog from Wordpress to Blogger? Blogger doesn't use plugin. This is one of Blogger shortfall.
You thought that is is as simple as exporting the content from Wordpress and upload it to Blogger directly?

It is not.

Blogger has different formating with Wordpress. You have to to convert your wordpress content to Blogger readable data.

I googled a way to convert and landed on a broken link site

What should I do next? I googled again. Someone was uploading the tools to convert but it runs on Phyton language. OMG I am not going to spend my time to study Phyton. So that's not an option.

So my last solution is uploading the post one by one manually. Yes, copy and paste the contents and images. Fortunately, I was not a very diligent blogger, I only have 32 posts from the past 2 years. LOL. I don't update this blog as frequently as my other blog. And all my images are hosted at Flickr, So I do not need to save the images to my computer again and re-upload it.

After finished migrating the content, now is time to migrate the domain. Migrating domain from one place to another is easy as pie. This is part of my service at my shop. I've been doing this frequently. And now as you can see, you can access my new blog at :)

Hopefully I will write often here. Finger crossed.
