The day has come.
Beginning tomorrow, April 4, the Bookman blog will be moving to its new headquarters and URL at http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/jay-bookman/. Please bookmark that site, and change your RSS feeds if you follow the blog through that approach (http://www.ajc.com/rss/weblog_entries/jay-bookman/).
The change also means that those wishing to comment will first have to register a user ID, complete with a working email address. Registration can be accomplished at the homepage, ajc.com — the link can be found at the upper right. I’m told that user names cannot have spaces in them, so Joe Hussein Obama, to pick an example, would have to register as JoeHusseinObama. Once you have registered a display name, you can use it on any ajc.com blog.
The change is needed to make the blog accessible to readers across a variety of modern platforms, from smart phones to I-pads to Kindles to laptops to PCs. I know that most of you have become comfortable with the way we’ve been doing things — I have as well, to be honest — but change is inevitable.
Hope to see you all in the new digs tomorrow!
