Some of you may be wondering why none of the Protocol Participants have posted in the last few days. Well, it’s because although they have posted, they’ve done so on our brand new site:
When I began this blog at my son’s insistence, I was sure that no one would read it but me and my pooch Lucy, so I got the easiest blog I could find. That was WordPress.com and I was sure that after a week or two I would close the thing down for lack of interest.
Wow, was I wrong. The number of folks from all over the world who read this blog daily number in the thousands, which still astonishes me. And who would have guessed that I had (and still have) so much to say? 😀 So, after much thought, I realized it was time to remove the training wheels and go out on my own. I purchased the domain, moved it to my host, installed the freestanding version of WordPress and even figured out how to transfer over every single page, post and comment.
There is a lot more I’ll be able to do once I figure out how to work all the options and install all the bells and whistles, but it will be fun to figure out. There are two new things about the site though. For one, you will have to sign up to ‘Follow’ again, since that did not transfer over. This way you’ll always be the first to see a new thread of mine, and I have several planned for the next week or two. One in particular that will surprise you.
If you would like to ‘follow’ this blog, scroll down to just below the “Post Comment” section on any thread. There you will see two boxes you can check:
— Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
— Notify me of new posts by email.
The other new thing is a Contribute button. Use it if you feel moved to do so, ignore it if you don’t. 🙂
Finally, I would like to invite readers to suggest topics on the Ask SugarFree thread if there’s anything you would like me to cover or investigate that I have not already. And I want to thank each and every one of you, Dear Reader, for sticking with me, and sending so many kind words my way.
So pack up your ‘inter-tubes’ in the “internet trucks” (thank you, Senator Ted Stevens, RIP), and come on over.
