On the radio…again!

A couple of weeks ago local realtor and heavy social media maven @ZoomJer and I were interviewed by CBC’s Rod Kurtz about our involvement with social media and our upcoming sessions at Guru Digital Arts College’s Social Media Saturday event.

Yes, we had fun! Check out our interview here… [powerpress url=”http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1165339/CBCRadioInterview/2010-09-15-social-media.mp3″]

In Transition — as the page says

Due to a monumental FUBAR between my website host, server restrictions, and some resource-heavy wordpress plugins, Bradgrier.com is currently without a home.

All is not lost:

  • I have a backup of the site, content, posts, comments etc
  • I retain my domain names etc
  • I have a boat-load of work ahead of me as I research and rebuild

Lessons learned:

  1. Backups are essential
  2. You get what you pay for
  3. Sometimes you get burned

Things to do:

  • point existing domain names to this wordpress-hosted blog
  • Reasearch robust hosts (I prefer a hosted solution as I do use some 3rd party plugins)
  • Take a deep breath 🙂

So, what have I missed. Any advice for me as I make this rather unscheduled transition? Comments are welcome!
