This blog is on the move.
As almost all the other AJC blogs have already done, my blog is relocating to a different piece of online real estate. I’m not moving far, and if the only way you read my blog is by clicking a link from the home page, you won’t notice any difference until you arrive.
But if you have my blog bookmarked or new posts delivered through an RSS feed — and I highly recommend doing one or both, for the sake of your convenience and my page views — you will need to adjust your settings. Starting Thursday, April 4, the new coordinates will be:
Don’t bother clicking those links before Thursday morning. There won’t be any there there.
Once there is, and you arrive to see it, you will find a new registration requirement before you can comment. If you are active on the sports blogs, or entertainment blogs, or Political Insider, or just about any ajc.com blog besides mine and Jay’s, you have already done this and are well on your way to being FIRST!!!! If not, you’ll need to click on the “Sign In/Register” link in the very upper-right corner of any page on ajc.com and create an account. It requires, among other things, a verifiable email account.
I’ll pause now for all trolls and sock puppets to wring their hands, gnash their teeth and tear their garments.
I enjoy our debates here, and I look forward to continuing them on the new blog home. I have been registered for some time now, and I have not noticed an uptick in spam, junk mail or unmarked cars parked outside my house. Seriously: Please don’t hesitate to register and stay in the conversation.
The new home will be better for those of you who access (or would like to access) the blog on smartphones, tablets and such. For now, it will not be available on the new subscriber-only website, myajc.com. I expect that to change sometime soon, but I’ve not been given an estimated date for that to happen or an outline of how the blog on that site will mirror this one.
If you have any questions, please ask them below. Although this is the last post I’ll be publishing on this blog site, I’ll still be checking both sites for awhile and will do my best to answer any questions you post here.
NOTE: It’s been awhile since anyone commented on the old blog, so I’m shutting down commenting here so I don’t have to keep checking both sites. If you have any questions, please post them at the new site or, if you’re having trouble doing that, email me.
And as always, thanks for reading.
