Just a very quick note to ask you to please pardon the dust on the web site and blog – especially if you are subscribed to the feed!
The last few weeks have found me hard at work moving the site to a new web hosting company, Blue Host (which happens to be the #1 recommended web host by WordPress).
Making The Most of My Time
Having the freedom of a private server address that worked separately from the live site, this served as the perfect opportunity to make several upgrades to the site itself – both in terms of the WordPress theme, as well as some of the content.
Nameserver Changes Can Be Quick… Who Knew?
I know that my traffic tends to be the lowest over the weekend, so I took the opportunity to initiate the DNS / Nameserver change late Friday afternoon, thinking it would take the typical 24-72 hours for propagation. Who knew that the nameservers would transfer in less than three hours, though, and cause havoc with Feedburner!
Fine-Tuning In Progress
If you’re subscribed, either via Email or RSS, you’ll no doubt be seeing what appears to be a ton of new posts (either old blog posts, or new portfolio pieces and client testimonials). I’m still working out the logistics of excluding a few categories from the feed, and didn’t expect that previously published posts would resurface as new again.
Needless to say, I’ll be spending some quality time with my site over the weekend. I hope to have everything straightened out by Monday!
Thanks for bearing with me.
