Hello readers! I have a few quick Running Writings-related updates to share: first, in early August, Running Writings will be migrating from its current (and very ancient) Google Blogger framework to a shiny new web host, with new servers and a more modern look. If I pull this off correctly, the site should experience minimal downtime and nothing should break. However, the site might be down for a bit in early August, so don’t panic. Moreover, there are likely going to be at least a few technical bugs to fix after the move. Formatting on older blog posts will likely be messy until I go through all the old posts and clean them up.
A few of the older features on the site might break: the RSS feed and the Google Blogger “follow” feature, for example, might not work on the new site. If you’ve been relying on those for updates, make sure to bookmark the site and check it in mid-August–I’ll have some new ways up and running by then so you can get notified any time I post new content. The new hosting and site infrastructure should allow a lot more flexibility in the kind of content I create and share on this site, so I’m really excited to finally have the time and skills to modernize Running Writings.
