A new chapter for Wide White

Wide White has moved to a new domain, URL, web address, link, or whatever word you use to describe the space where you enter websites you want to go visit. After almost 5 years at widewhite.blogspot.com, Wide White has moved to www.widewhite.org.

First and foremost, update your links and bookmarks! There's currently a redirect in place so if you type in the old URL, you'll be brought to the new URL. However, that's only because I'm still using Blogger, which is handling the automatic redirect. It won't last forever, so update your links and bookmarks ASAP!

Second, I'm moving from Blogger to WordPress. This move isn't happening immediately. Because Blogger handles page redirects from the old blogspot address to the new .org address, I'll be leaving the blog on Blogger so Google can update its links for Google searches and people aren't sent to dead pages. Once that's complete, I'll move to Wordpress. That move won't require you to update any links again, but you will see a new blog template at that point in time. It will probably be a few months until that happens. If all works as planned, you RSS subscribers shouldn't have to change anything since Google Reader should update everything automatically.

These changes should have pretty minimal impact on readers. For now, just update any links or bookmarks you have. Once I've made the switch to WordPress, you'll find better a better platform for commenting and I'll have a much more flexible blog platform to work with, among other things.

As always, thanks for reading and thanks for taking the time to update your links and bookmarks!
