An Extreme Makeover – For Your Blog!

Healthcare Today wants to give your blog an extreme makeover!

It is a contest and the prizes are enough to make a bona-fide blogger go bananas!

  • A complete migration of your current blog to your own domain name (i.e. and WordPress, the software used by more of the web’s most popular blogs than any other.
  • A shiny new professional blog theme that reflects your blog’s personality and makes you look great.
  • One year of free hosting from Liquid Web, the best web host we’ve ever used.

The contest runs through September. The details are at Healthcare Today: Take Your Blog to the Next Level.

Many will enter, five will win!

And it will make him embarrassed, but let me tell you that Shane has pretty much made Emergiblog what it is today. So….

For a chance to find out what your blog can do with professional backing, head on over to Healthcare Today and get started!

    I don’t get Health Care Today. I tried to post once and the link did not work. Too much for this new blogger, I guess. Maybe I’ll try it again later. I am enticed with the prize, though. I can sure use a medium that will help my blog load faster.

    Sounds good. Does Pagerank migrate too? I already have a clone of my blogspot site as a backup on WordPress.

    I already have my own domain name on a wordpress site hosted on my personal liquid web server, teehee!

    Kim, thanks for the kind words! I think everyone would agree, though, that Emergiblog wouldn’t have gone anywhere without your great writing.

    @Karin: I’d love to help you figure it out. We definitely don’t want anyone to be confused 🙂 I know we could do a better job than we’re doing now, and talking through issues with people helps me see what those areas are.

    @Dr. R: It depends on what you mean by PageRank and what platform you’re on currently. In many cases, like if you’re moving from Blogger, any link equity you’ve built up will not transfer. New links are built up very quickly, though, and I always advise people to move sooner rather than later. To me, it’s like renting your house vs. buying it. You can spend a lot of time fixing up your place real nice over on Blogger, but at the end of the day it’s still not your place — it’s theirs. I’d much rather own than rent.

    I love Shane. He’s the best web guy EVER! He’s helped me in more ways than I can count. I just got my new website and I really love it. Good luck to everyone who is entering the contest.

    To Shane, the famous “Web Guy,”
    I got it, I think. I sent my posts! It came to me easier now that I retried it. Thanks for your concern.
