Changes coming

First off, I’d like to thank everyone who read last week’s review and has left comments and sent messages of support.  Your support means a lot to me.  I know my audience is small right now, but I’m glad to hear that you’re enjoying what you’ve read.  And I look forward to bringing you more reviews in the future.  Hopefully ones that you’ll want to share with your friends.

But first, there will be some changes.  As some of you have noticed, the current site is built using Apple’s iWeb.  While iWeb is great for someone maintaining a single site, I’m running two separate domains off of iWeb.  And some of the things I’ve had to do to make that work haven’t given me the best results.  And some of the features I really want to offer on this site are things iWeb just doesn’t offer.

So I will be moving the site to a new host.  When I have everything set up, the change over should be relatively smooth.  The URL will remain the same, although those who are subscribed through the RSS feed will have to switch to a new feed.  The new site will be hosted on Blogger, which will give me access to tag entries, and more robust archiving.

The appearance of the site will change, and there may be some additional ripples as I tweak it where I want it.  And I will also be setting up a Facebook page and a Twitter feed for the blog.

And by being able to tag articles, I should be able to add new articles with editorials, speculation, news, and other goodies in addition to the reviews.

So please bear with me as I go about improving the site.

Talk to you soon!
