Whew! Yesterday finished the big move. Everything from the old site – photos, videos, text, comments, links, yadda-yadda-yadda – it’s all here now.
If you arrived by a boomerang redirect from the old site, you’ll want to update your bookmarks and RSS feeds. The old site will continue to redirect people here for several months, but at some point will disappear into the black hole of the digital never was.
I’m thinking posting a photo live, from the first sail on these boats, could be pretty cool.
I do miss the clean, simple look of the old site, and it’s been a challenge trying to balance convenience with clutter on the new one. Like everything digital, simple things are often the most difficult, and control over how things look is not as easy as it was, but it’s close enough for now. It also seems a little slower, which feels like going backwards.
That said, there are some functions available now that will come in handy, things that were not possible before. For instance, I can add a new post with photos or video from my phone while traveling. I’m thinking posting a photo live, from the first sail on these boats could be pretty cool. Also, for the first time I will actually know when someone posts a comment, so a timely reply is more likely. Galleries of many photos can be included now, too, whereas before I was limited to about 15 images per post. Pictures are good.
Here’s to progress.
