Maybe I am that dumb?

It's obvious that I've changed the name of my blog to more accurately reflect our new home and glee we feel about moving to Minneapolis, but I've got a small techno problem to work out.

Ok bloggers, I need some help.  I tried to change the address of the blog to something more similar to the blog's name, but even after I changed it, I could never locate it by googling the new address.  It came up with some old blogs with that address....guess mini apple us is not so unique after all....but I still find it witty and charming, so it's staying.  It also came up with everything 'Apple' related, such as IPad's, but nothing with my blog. 

So what's the scoop?  Why could I not find my own damn blog with the new address?  Why did I have to switch the address back to the whynorthdakota one?

I would love to cut all my ties to this glorious state, so any advice about this would be helpful.  I know I have techno nerdy friends who can help me so I'm counting on you.

I don't really know the answer to your question...though it could be not coming up just because it's new and Google hasn't had a chance to "see" it under the new address. But it's probably good if you don't change the actual address of this blog without warning. If you do, all of us who are following you in a reader will suddenly lose you - because the address we have bookmarked will not be accurate anymore.

It might be better to do one of two things: 1. Start a whole new blog and leave this one as a record of your time in ND - because you don't want to lose the memories. In fact, you could even print everything on this blog using a neat service called Blog2Print and then either delete this or just leave it; 2. Transfer all of this blog over to a whole new blog address - which can be done if you go to the Help menu of Blogger (I'm just not sure of all the steps off the top of my head). Then all this will get transferred to a new address, but you won't have any conflict of addresses with Google. If you do that - or even if you start a new blog - leave a notice at the top of this page with your new addy so we can switch over and not lose you. It's easy for us to follow the new one if we know about the move, but we have to know for sure. :^)
