After a very busy week of work, we are proud to display the fruits of all these efforts: the New Nifty Tech Blog site! The new site is hosted by Blogger, and provides me access to a number of widgets and tools that will make posting and maintaining the blog easier for me. For you the reader, it provides a more robust archive page, the ability to search entries by labels, and a number of subscription options. And a new RSS feed hosted by Feedburner.
Despite putting in a lot of work this past week, I wasn’t quite able to make all the updates I wanted to. So you may see little changes to the site in the coming days and weeks as I make little tweaks here and there.
For those of you following the OLD RSS feed, I’m afraid you’re going to have to go to http://www.NiftyTechBlog.com and re-subscribe with the new RSS feed. I’m sorry about that, but I just didn’t have any good way to feed the new feed through the old one. The old site will remain at it’s underlying URL for a while, until I am confident that folks have moved to the new incarnation of the site.
All the posts and comments have already been transferred over to the new site, although I’m afraid the date-time stamps for the comments couldn’t be preserved. The comments are still there in the correct order, but the date-time stamps reflect when they were migrated rather than when they were posted.
There will be a review posted later today, but I’m afraid it will be a bit late. But it WILL be up on Monday, February 15, 2010 in Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5). Promise. The new post will only be on the new feed. This will be the last post that will show up on the old feed, so the time to switch over is now.
Please let me know how you like the new site, and feel free to offer constructive comments and suggestions. I’m always happy to hear from my readers!
