This past weekend, I moved the hosting of this site to WordPress, and in the days since, I have been delighted with the results. The WordPress Happiness Engineers (especially Paul Jacobson) did an outstanding job of making this a smoother migration than I could possibly have imagined. With this migration, I wanted to point out a few changes effective today.
- I have updated to a more modern theme for the site, one that is compatible with WordPress’s Gutenberg engine. So things may look a little different here, although I did my best to keep things organized in the same manner.
- I have changed the 90-day limit for comments on a post, reopening it for all posts. Previously, after 90 days, comments closed on a post, but I decided that there were enough posts worthy of further comment so I opened it back up.
- I revamped my About page, providing information about me, and the blog. Over the next week or so you should also see updates to the Contact page and my Bibliography page.
- During 2021, I have been posting every day. So far that as amounted to nearly 200 posts in the first half of the year. Going forward, I still plan to try to post every day, but I’m not holding myself to post every day if I don’t have anything to write about that interests me. It means that there may be some days that you see nothing new from me. Even so, you should expect 3-4 posts per week in those conditions.
- That said, beginning tomorrow (Friday) I am introducing a new weekly series I’m calling “Weekly Playbook.” Each week I’ll post and discuss a playbook that I use to try to be more efficient and productive with my time. As an example, the debut playbook will be about my morning routine. You can expect to find this every Friday. (I’ve got lots of playbooks so they should last a while.)
- Finally, at the bottom of each post you’ll see a box like the one below. I don’t write here for money. This is a hobby, an avocation that I enjoy doing. I don’t have ads on the site; I don’t even have an Amazon affiliate link when I link to books. What this box is asking of my readers is two things, and I hope that they aren’t intrusive: (a) if you like the blog, subscribe, either by email or by following the blog in WordPress or through the RSS feeds; (b) if you enjoy what you read, tell your friends about it. That’s it.
I’d love to know what you think of the new theme, or anything other comment or feedback you have. I’ve been doing this for nearly 16 years now, but I am always open to learning and really want to improve.
Thanks again for reading!
