Blogger issues - part 2

I've used Blogger as my authoring platform for the last five years or so. I've been contemplating making the change to WordPress for a bit now. There seem to be some good tools to migrate over, and maintain the permalinks for existing posts. My current issue with Blogger related pages is there inability to index properly (or what I would consider properly in Google). For example, I have written posts on "baby shower cards" and Corey Stroeder. The baby shower card post has a URL of However, Google seems to continually index my main URL,, rather than the extended URL, which makes it difficult for someone coming through Google to see the exact post. There are links to the permalink URL, which makes this challenging to fix. More as I research it further.

Why so many posts?

If you subscribe to this blog via email, you may have noticed several recent days with many posts, many of which seem recurring. I'm updating all the posts with titles, so you'll be seeing a number of older posts show up, as I go back through and update them. I'll also post, in the next few weeks, some indications of what impact this has had on Google rankings. Previously, all blog posts had just indexed under, without the detailed URL information, and I'm now on the way to getting this changing.

Brad Feld

Brad Feld had a great post today... Useful stuff, if you've been running a blog, and want to take stock of all the areas you can gather stats in.
I've been intrigued by the fact that at this point, more people have opt'd to receive updates via email, than by RSS reader. I'll be curious to see when those two lines cross.

If you've been curious about social networking, there's what looks to be a good intro from CMO magazine.
