In the next couple of days, the blog will be moving.
I’ve been promising a facelift for this blog for nearly two years now, but I’m finally making good on that promise. In addition to a spiffy new design, I’m moving the blog away from Blogger and into a new platform altogether. Because this has become the repository of my life and thoughts over the last decade or so, I’ve decided to host it myself so that I have possession of these important words instead trusting them to a cloud platform.
So, at some point in the next three to four days (I’m still finalizing a couple of odds and ends), you’ll see a spiffy new blog here.
Here’s the housekeeping stuff:
The URL will remain the same. I’m keeping the legacy Feedburner feed that I set up years ago, because a good number of you still get my posts that way. That should transition smoothly. In case you want to subscribe in a different way, or in case the Feedburner feed doesn’t transition smoothly for some reason, the new RSS feed for the blog will be this (that link won’t work until the transition is finished).
Those of you subscribing in Feedly: your subscription will likely stop working after the transfer, and you’ll need to re-subscribe (this will depend on how smoothly the Feedburner switch goes). There will be a Feedly link after each post on the new site, and a general RSS subscription link in the footer (which is the same as the link above).
And, of course, all of the posts will still go out on social media channels as they always have.
I’ll put up a test post after the transition is complete to make sure everything is working, and please make sure to let me know if it’s not.
I haven’t been posting much lately because I’ve been spending that time getting the new site ready. I’m excited about the new look, and I’m very excited to get back to writing here on a regular basis. Thank you sincerely for reading.
