Hello, avid readers of velogogo! Yes, I’m talking to both of you. Listen up please.
Velogogo has moved into a new home. The problem, if you haven’t already noticed, was that the platform this blog was running on (pmwiki) and my hosting service provider (dreamhost) were not getting along and there did’t appear to be a permanent solution to the performance problem which had been plaguing this site for quite some time.
I’m starting a new site here. It’s now running on Tumblr. Tumblr is what the hip kids are calling microblog or tumblog. Basically it means a blog that better caters to busy people who wants to collect short snippets of anything they want - such as text, photos, videos, links and so on.
Few things to remember…
This move will require some fancy domain forwarding so there could a period where you might notice strange behaviors or even the site being down completely.
All archives of velogogo will be gone completely. Why? Three reasons:
(1) It will be damn near impossible to restore velogogo archives where it’s going
(2) There really isn’t anything that interesting that I want to hold on to in the archives
(3) The new format of velogogo will be very different than its current form.
The new site will be heavy on the ADD-inflicted snippets of links, quotes, pictures and videos. No more trying to write something insightful about the sport of cycling which I never had any time or talent for to begin with. It will be different but I hope you will find it entertaining.
Oh and I will try to continue to post my Gimbel’s ride recaps here but unfortunately there is no user comment support on Tumblr yet so you will just have to accept my words as God’s truth.
