What Happened to Rozwoundup.Typepad.com?

September 17, 2018
Pen and watercolor, with a little bit of white gouache, on old Gutenberg paper.

Over the weekend I killed my Typepad account.

In October 2008 I started my blog on Typepad. For 8 years it worked well as a platform to share my work with friends and students. But the design was static and the features offered on Typepad didn’t match the needs I had growing forward. I decided to move my blog to WordPress.

Typepad’s structure makes it pretty impossible to migrate a blog to any other platform if you have over 5000 images as I did. (I had over 2100 posts at the time of the migration!)

It has to do with the way Typepad stores the images you import. They rename them (odd numbers that don’t mean anything to the blogger). When the material is transferred there is no automatic way to reconnect the images with the post so that the large resolution files (the “click on to see enlargement files”) transfer in place.

I know there is no way because I hired a web designer who used software designed to do it, but that got us only so far. And then there was no were to go, except manual insertion of each of those images.

I spent thousands of dollars trying to get help on this issue, getting the runaround, and assurances from a variety of people.

In the meantime things didn’t go well with the set up of my WordPress blog in other respects.

I spent more thousands of dollars.

It was something that wasn’t sustainable.

I started looking at “letting go” of things.

The first thing that went was the unresponsive web designer who assured me way at the beginning that the transfer would work even though everything I’d read about the software he was going to use said it wouldn’t work.

You hire someone, pay them money, and expect them to be experts. It doesn’t always work out that way. 

Sometimes you just cut your losses.

In the meantime, because my WordPress version of RozWoundUp.com had been moved by the same designer to a very slow host I had difficulty posting. I wrote one post in the time it took me to write three posts previously. The host lagged and timed out continuously.  

Readers had difficulty actually accessing my site while it was on that poor host. I lost thousands of readers. So many readers in fact that I could no longer justify the money I was spending on trying to fix everything. (Those readers were the base from which students came for my classes.)

Learn from my experience on this. If you have a Typepad blog don’t try to move it. Leave it where it is and then start a new blog elsewhere! Refer back to the old blog as an archive. If you have a paid account it will only cost you about $140 a year and if you downgrade to a free account (perhaps loosing some of your design features) you’ll have an archive with all your links intact. Either is preferable. Either means you probably won’t lose your readership.

It is difficult to watch something you took eight years to build be destroyed in less that three months.

But the past 6 years have been about loss and deterioration of one sort or another, so this was just a business-related lesson to add to the mix.

With the damage done I found a new web designer who listened to my concerns. He has worked to make the new blog stable and easier for me to use. 

There are still some issues to work out and little by little we have been working on them.

But the main thing I had to work out was my ability to let things go. That happened just before I hired the new guy. Things had been going wrong for 2 years and in that time the stress and frustration was such that I finally got to the point of acceptance. I wanted to stop looking back at the archive of work I had built—posts which I thought articulated a series of clear instructions for creative expression—and move forward into whatever life held for me.

I am hoping that all of you reading this post today are also looking to move forward with me into whatever life holds.

But What About Your Typepad Blog?

All of the posts from Typepad are included in this blog!

You can go to the Archive (in the navigation menu under “BLOG”) and you can find every post that was on the Typepad platform.

When you go to any post you will see all of the text and images that you originally saw over at Typepad.

What you won’t be able to do is click on the images to view an enlargement. Any blog post published before February 2017 is like this.

There are some exceptions because there are some posts I refer to so frequently that it was important I go into those posts and reimport the images so that the images they contained could be enlarged. These are posts that were important to me as teaching examples for the most part.

But even with the smaller static images you can understand what’s being discussed in a post.

If you click on an image in one of these old Typepad posts a new window will open, but it will contain the same post, not an enlargement of the image—an artifact of the way Typepad relabels and arranges things.

I’m sorry that this may frustrate you. Image how it makes me feel after spending so much money to try to fix this!

So I suggest we both laugh about it and move on. That’s what I’m doing.

What About All My Bookmarks and the Links to Your Typepad Posts?

I closed my Typepad account on Saturday, September 15, 2018. 

When I closed that account the Rozwoundup.Typepad.com blog ceased to exist. (It was not possible to put a redirect on Typepad.)

That means that everyone who ever linked to my blog post in one of his posts now has a link that goes to nowhere. That’s another thing I can’t control. People really interested in finding the information and reaching me will do a simple search and find the new RozWoundUp. My readers are pretty smart!

I also lost my ranking in Google for all those posts that hundreds of bloggers were linking.

Well that’s something else I can’t control. And it was damaged the moment I was hacked at RozWorks.com in 2016. (It was the effort of fixing that hack that began the string of events that led to the expenditures of time and money better spent as suggested at the beginning of this post—by just starting over with a new blog and the Typepad blog as an archive.)

If you bookmarked one of my posts way back in 2008 or 2009 let’s say, or any time up through January 2017, and you click on your bookmark it won’t get you anywhere. (I don’t know what type of message will come up but it will be something on the “not-found” range or simply blank. I can’t control that either.)

How Can I Find A Typepad Link On RozWoundUp.com?

If you want to find that blog post from my Typepad blog on the WordPress version of of RozWoundUp.com (the blog you are reading right now) all you have to do is look at the Typepad URL you saved.  

Let’s say you wanted to read about my “Saying Goodbye to the Bell Museum” project in this post with the Typepad URL below. You want to do one of the following:

Approach 1:

Look at the portion of the Typepad url that falls after the date (I’ve highlighted this in red below). Then type that, without the hyphens into the search engine on Rozwoundup.com

http://typepad.rozwoundup.com/roz_wound_up/2017/01/saying-good-bye-to-the-bell-museummy-last-day-there-and-some-musing-on-painting.html

You should only need to type the first three to five words and then click “search.” The blog post with that title should come up for you.

Approach 2:

Look at the portion of the Typepad url that is the date (I’ve highlighted this in green below). This means that this post was written in the year 2017 in the first month, i.e. January.

http://typepad.rozwoundup.com/roz_wound_up/2017/01/saying-good-bye-to-the-bell-museummy-last-day-there-and-some-musing-on-painting.html

Now go to Rozwoundup.com

On any page of RozWoundUp.com look for “BLOG” at the top right in the navigation menu.

Click on “BLOG” for a drop down menu.

Choose “ARCHIVES” from that menu.

Up will pop a list of the archives by month. Scroll down and click on the month and year you need (in this instance “January 2017”).  A list of posts for that month will pop up and you can find the post with the title found in the URL (i.e., the title which was in red in the first example listed above).

Note: When the post list pops up you may encounter another artifact of Typepad that didn’t transfer well—you might see a post’s image appear twice. Click on the post’s title, not one of the images, and you’ll be taken to the related post. (What is happening with the photos is too complicated to explain.)

It’s Not Ideal, But It Works

Look, I realize I’m asking you to work harder to access material you already had bookmarked. but I believe two things:

  1. I believe my writing and the information on my blog is worth the extra effort. And my loyal readers do as well. I believe there is so much of interest, from reviews of commercially bound journals to ideas for improving your creative practice, that it’s worth spending a couple more seconds to find those posts of interest.
  2. I already ask you to put real time, intention, and effort into your creative practice, so this should be easy-peasy for you.

By letting go of Typepad and the need to fix the migrated posts in this new version of RozWoundUp I can do what I most love doing—continue writing to you with a free and clear mind.

I’m already feeling so much happier and less stressed!

Why Are You Telling Us All This?

I took time today to post this (and make a reference page with this information) because I hope for two things.

First I hope that none of you will ever do what I tried to do—move a Typepad blog that is image heavy to another platform. I want to save you the money and aggravation.  

Second I wanted to explain it so that I had a page to refer concerned readers to.

People write to me daily saying “an image won’t expand.” Well if the image is from January 2017 or BEFORE chances are it won’t—unless it’s one of those special teaching posts I’ve fixed manually. 

By letting you all know what’s happened I am able to simply refer you to this page so you can read and understand what’s going on. (And at the same time I can get back to what I really love doing which is writing blog posts and painting.)

But at the same time if you send me a note about something not working on the blog I can see immediately if it is this type of issue or something that I can actually fix. And if it’s the latter, I’ll fix it.

And finally I’m writing about this because it may be a shock to many of you the next time you click one of your book marks and find Rozwoundup.Typepad.com is gone. And this post will allow you to all understand what is going on.

My Goals

I also wanted to write and thank you for reading, whether you’ve been reading for almost 10 years (the 10 year anniversary is coming up in October!), or you have just found RozWoundUp.

I appreciate you taking time to read my posts and think about the topics I’m suggesting to you as worthwhile to think about.

My goal in starting RozWoundUp in 2008 was so that I could regularly communicate with my friends, students, and collectors of my artwork.

I also wanted a way to write to and form connections with past students while attracting new students to my in-person classes. (I was not doing online classes until 2010).

Readers of the blog know that this year has been about more change than the last several eventful years combined. I’ve been looking at what I want to do with the blog going forward as we approach the 10-year-anniversary.

My plans are not yet finalized.

Right now I plan to keep blogging through 2018 and decide what direction I want to take in 2019. That direction could be continued art-related blogging on this blog, but I think there will also be more about my other “many enthusiasms.”

When I started the blog it was meant to be all about my “many enthusiasms. Because I was doing so much teaching that sort of took over the blog.

But in the 10 years I’ve been blogging I started the MCBA Visual Journal Collective (which I ran for many years before passing it off into other capable hands), started and ran the Minnesota State Fair Sketch Out (which is now run by illustrator Marty Harris), worked to bring sketch night to the Bell Museum, and helped grow Urban Sketchers Twin Cities with Ken and Roberta Avidor.

I’m excited about the role I played in the last 10 years to transform the sketching landscape of my city.

Before 2008 I would do what I’d always done: go off somewhere and sketch. I was accustomed to being the only sketcher at a venue.

Now, 10 years later there are several large and thriving sketching groups in the Twin Cities. It seems that at all my favorite sketching spots it’s not uncommon for me to find someone else sketching; someone who usually comes up and introduces him- or herself to me because they’ve read my blog and I’m easy to spot with the never changing hairstyle.

I love that the blog has been a part of getting so many people to open a sketchbook and start observing all the events in their lives from the excitement of a road trip  to the seemingly mundane details of daily life.

The other day I said to my friend Tom, “I don’t know, I might even stop blogging?” 

I’ve known Tom since 1989 (or longer?). 

He looked at me and said, “I’ve never known you to not be publishing; publishing something.”

And I thought about that for a minute while we both laughed. It’s so true. Before the blog it was magazine articles about search dog training, rubber-stamping, movie and book reviews, and color pencil art. I also always had one or two zines going. (Back when you actually had to mail physical printed pieces out to people!)

I have always loved the printed page. And after a bit of adjustment I came to love the digital page because it meant I didn’t have to run over to the printer for a press check, or lug boxes of zines over to the post office.

As a graphic designer the blog was like one long busman’s holiday.

I’ve been really grateful for going on that holiday with you.

I’m looking forward to seeing what it morphs into.

Thank You For Reading

Note: Everything you found on RozWorks.com is still there. RozWorks.com was my first website. It is still intact but I haven’t posted to it since 2008. Links from my blog RozWoundUp still go to it. (I often refer in posts to series and other work posted on RozWorks.com that I want to discuss with students.) 

Any bookmarks you made to RozWorks.com still work.

The Daily Dots section is still up on that site.

Also at RozWorks.com you’ll find under “Fun” a Journaling section. This includes selections of pages from my journals going back to 1998.

When the site was set up we had to set up a cut off date for how far back we would go—I simply wasn’t interested in spending my time scanning past work. My focus is always about creating new work.  

Setting 1998  as a cut off worked  because of how I started organizing scans of my work from that year forward. It also coincided with my adoption of a digital index of my journal pages.

Upon occasion I may post pre-1998 work in a blog post because it is a special series or makes a teaching point—but then I have to go into a photo archive to retrieve that material, and that archive is cumbersome and not complete. Journals from before 1998 are also archived in boxes so that makes retrieval more difficult.

      Yes, Daily Dots were on my first website RozWorks.com and are still there and still available.

      I’m so glad you asked this because I went back into the post to write a note about RozWorks and the Daily Dots as I’m sure other people will have the same question and not realize that DD is on RozWorks.

      Thanks for writing. And I’m so glad you enjoy that series.

        Daily Dots is a favorite of mine. That’s when I first found your website. I loved those sketches and they got me sketching my lab, Gusar. He’s 16 1/2 and has back leg issues. But every day he’s here is a blessing.
        I also like your state fair sketches. I grew up on a farm so I love animal, especially pigs, cows and chickens, sketches.
        I’m in northern Michigan so we’re pretty close except for a big lake. Thanks for sharing all your sketches and artistic work.
        Glad Daily Dots is still available to us!

    Roz, glad to hear this longstanding issue has finally been put to bed. Good to know your archived posts will still be accessible. I have mined your current and historical blog posts for the past 5 years and they have been a most valuable and reliable source of inspiration and product reviews. I know I can rely on your sage advice and recommendations. I wish you all the best going forward and selfishly hope you keep blogging or somehow keep lines of communication open🤔.

I am currently taking your “By Design” class and am blown away by the content, style, enthusiasm, class, depth of information, etc., etc., etc. I hope you’ll consider offering more online courses in 2019 — you have a guaranteed sign-up in me. You’ve set an example that has pushed me to expand my sketching and journaling practice and I will be forever grateful.

      Karen, that’s very sweet of you to say and it cheers me to hear it, especially as there is a little sadness I’m still sloughing off after Saturday’s “click to delete” activity.

I eagerly took your Klass in Sketchbook Skool and have since then dipped in and out of your blog, and now of course I am signed up — but through all of this, I have always longed for a B O O K !!! 🙂 Nothing migrates, or moves… and you are always reviewing other people’s books… You have so much to share already, mix up wanderings, instruction, obsessions, anything! PLEASE just start on Volume 1 – Chroncles of Roz!!! <3

    HaHa! You can’t hide from us, well find your blogs wherever they are 🙂 There is great wisdom and ultimately joy in letting go of the undoable! I’m go grateful for all the years of your blogs and there was a time when work/life was utterly sucking the life force out of me. I’d come home and read you blogs to feel alive and creative . After several YEARS of reading your blogs, I began to doodle/sketch, watercolor and was overjoyed when you offered the sketching in public class and Sketchbook Skool class, Sketchy and more. I learned to let go from your blogs and they fed and encouraged my curiosity to continue to seek and learn. Whenever anyone asks where I learned to sketch/draw (Ha!) I always direct them to your site first. I also continuously see past class participants posting their sketches and they also recommend you. SO, keep writing, publishing and being in the public. As Sheryl requested a book, you have a fan base for any book, pamphlet, ebook, etc! Write on!

      Vicky, now I have a challenge. To put secret blogs everywhere so you can find them. There is actually one up already, but with only one post. It was created in case I wanted to move on completely—still deciding. It doesn’t show up on a search of my name.

    I cut my Typepad blog loose a couple of years ago and have not looked back. Of course, I didn’t have the amazing content you had there. Sometimes you just have to work out a compromise.

    Please don’t stop posting in some way, shape or form — your blog is so inspirational. I have yet to find one so filled with detailed information, fantastic sketches, life lessons and good humor. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for the detailed prediction of what I will go through in 10 years had I chosen Typepad. I found your post while researching for a good blog/web platform. I’m about to start blogging but haven’t found a platform that I’m comfortable.

    I’ve never read your blog but have found many affinities with you through this post. I also sketch, paint, journal and graphic design. I also have been going through a challenging few years which is why I want to start blogging. I came to realize that the loss, pain and suffering will not be in vain if someone else learn from it and was averted from the same loss, pain and suffering. Know that I am that someone who has learnt from your loss. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    With love from Australia

      Coco, I’m glad you found my post about Typepad and the impossibility of transfer of images and are looking for somewhere else to put your blog. I know a lot of people are talking about Square Space. I went with WordPress. I needed a web designer to help me because I wanted to focus on my other work, but I have friends who have set things up on their own with WordPress. Good luck finding something that suit you and your needs.

      Thank you for your kind comment about my posts on eldercare and loss. I think that as my generation ages it’s important to share the stories of eldercare because so many of my friends are going through the experience isolated, frustrated, confused, and of course deeply saddened. I think when we share these events it’s possible that someone else might see a little light to a new direction or approach. I hope you’ve built a great support group. Thanks for your comment.
