You already know that Lifecruiser Cyber Cruise Moves – If you have read my earlier post.

The new blog name

The new blog’s name is Cyber Cruisers, simply because the Cyber Cruise is what we have called it right from the beginning and that also tells what it’s all about.

We’re cruising the cyber space, but experiencing travel through other bloggers real travel written in blog posts.

Free host place for the blog

I went through a lot of different details whith each blog hosting site, to be sure to choose the right one to host the Cyber Cruisers. I did choose Mostly because it’s so reliable and safe and isn’t having quite as much “annoying habits” as Blogger has. I’m not going to list all the reasons here…

How to announce a cyber cruise post

There are now several different alternatives for you to announce your cyber cruise post. The first alternative is of course the one I recommend for you to gain most publicity.

Alt. 1) You get an WordPress user account, which means I can add your user account to our group blog, so that you can write an asskicking announcement yourself, about your cyber cruise post over at your regular blog.

Alt. 2) You rely on me or other Cyber Cruisers to post your link for you in a post. The linking may be delayed – and certainly if I’m out traveling…

Alt. 3) You leave the link in the comment section of the Cyber Cruisers blog, with a high risk of being not seen – and this will not be stored in the Archives to easily be found later either.

It’s entirely up to you to choose which alternative that suits you the best :-)

NOTE: There will be no more linking to Cyber Cruise posts on this blog, Lifecruiser, from now on, other than sporadic if I happen to have something to say about some specific post content, maybe.

How to get a Cyber Cruisers account

All you need to get access and start announcing your posts yourself, is a account.

If you already have a WordPress user account, all you have to do is to tell me the emailaddress you have in that blog’s settings – and I’ll send you an invite to the Cyber Cruise group blog.

If not: You signup at for an account: takes only a minute (!) and you don’t have to create a blog there if you don’t want to, just an user account.

Don’t forget to email me the email address you have there, so I can invite you to the Cyber Cruisers blog too.

Though I recommend you to create a blog with the same blog name as you have in your Blogger blog name. If you’re fond of your regular blog name, why not “secure” that no one else takes it in

The last words about the move

Remember, it’s all up to you now. I’ll hop around telling you all about this post, but, I’ll not remind you again.

If you’re not leaving me that email address tied to a WordPress account, I’ll assume that you just want to leave your link in the comments of the new blog – or don’t want to participate in the Cyber Cruise any more at all.

Either way: I thank you all with all my heart for all the smashing fun times we’ve had on all the cruises so far!

Welcome over to the new Cyber Cruisers :-)

    Did you know – that you could have added the domain to your current hosting account? (If you own the domain name), and then you could have hosted on the space you’re currently using – new domain name and all. Then of course, with your own self-hosted version of WP, the design possibilities are endless.

    Lifecruiser said:

    Yes, I know that Leanne, but it was nice of you to inform me in case of that I didn’t know :mrgreen:

    I considered that option, but decided not too. In case of me handling over the Cyber Cruise to some one else later on, I didn’t want to have it on my host then with the fuss with a move later on. I don’t want it to consume my bandwidth either.

    I could have paid for a domain mapping in, but decided that I wanted a completely free one. No fee’s to renew every year – in case I’m away in foreign countries….

    It’s possible that I’ll regret saying this, later on, but then I’ll have to kick my own butt! *giggles*

    Oh, and yes, the blog layout is lame, especially when getting used to your customized ones, but it will have to do for now.

    Mostly it’s about leaving links to posts – actually come to think about it, a bit like Thursday Thirteen, but without the blogroll!

    Thanks again. You’re such a sweetie wanting to inform me.

    I think I need more time from work and family to change to Word Press. It’s lots of things going on here for the moment. My daughters move to Hong Kong, my oldest Son is 40 the week to come, I might change job-role (shhhh), my mothers age etc etc. not to forget we for the moment are without curtains – new window frames and all my tools are in the summerhouse, besides I feel like a sleeping bear….
    – after all, I did manage to pick up the Cats from my X – after an IT community meeting this late afternoon (Renny was there as well, but I had to leave before the food and wine) and on top of that post from last weekend in Fredrikstad.


    PS. Are you joining Per to you know were…

    You’ve done a terrific good job Capt’n. I know the template could have been better – it always can be – but its the content that counts in the long run – so now its up to us. To make an WP account (good choice!) is simple and everyone should be able to contribute. I’ve made a simple one myself and are looking forward to see other A-Team Cruisers follow up as well.

    YAY for you, Captain. You´ve done an awesome job – I love the new ship :mrgreen: We´re so looking forward to sail away!

    Hope life is good to you and yours!

    Tor, no need to change to WordPress, you’re just supposed to create an account there – which is done in less than a minute, promise! No need of a blog if you don’t want to. Just click on the sign up link in the post. are really not that different from Blogger, so there should be no problem for you.

    No, we’re not joining Per – it’s somewhere else…. I’ll write more about it later.

    I hope things in your real life will calm down for you soon :-)

    Okeydokey…you made it sooo easy for us! Hugs & Kisses for that! Oh heck, throw in a bottle of champagne too! :smile:

    So now I’ve signed up with WP….haven’t got a blog yet…just an account, but you said that was ok, so I’m taking your word for it. My email addie is:

    Over and out. Peace.

    Your Loyal and Sometimes Naughty Swabee :wink:

    Same email as I use for the post, captain. Though, I don’t know what I’m going to post there, but if it’s free, I want it. :mrgreen:

    Gattina said:

    You don’t leave much choices ! I don’t want to have a WordPress blog but I want to stay a member of the Cyber Cruise. I have to think it over I just read the answer you gave to Tor.
    So if I publish a post about a country or a city I have to put the link to my Blog on the Cyber Cruise website ?? Or how does it work ??

    BTW yesterday, don’t ask me how I suddenly had a Google Readers account, but it took quite some time to get all my favourites in there. Now I have to see how it works.

    Mar said:

    I already have a WP account and my e-mail is the same old one: bloggerdot at gmail dot com… :cool: Can’t wait for an invite!!!

    Lifecruiser said:

    Gattina, I’m sure you’ll find it very easy to signup for an account only. You just have to tick the box at the bottom of the signup page that says: “Just a username, please.”

    And yes, this means that you’ll be able to post a post directly on the Cyber Cruise blog about your new Cyber Cruise post with a link back to your Cyber Cruise post at your ordinary blog.

    No waiting for me to announce your posts any more!

    Of course, you’re most welcome to leave your links to me (problems when I’m away though) or in the comments only too, but that will not be an option that will benefit you the most :-)

    You know you’re welcome however you want it to be.

    YEAH, for the Goodle Reader success for you! Good Luck :-)

    I cannot seem to get the Cyber Cruisers blog up, has it been taken down?


    Yes Thomas, it has been taken down after a while due to low activity by the cruisers. One should always stop when on the top :-)
