My web hosts for this site offered me the chance to migrate to a new platform, from Movable Type to WordPress. I said yes, go ahead. The result is what you see now, a big improvement, I think. The layout and design is so much more versatile. It explains why I have been absent for a while.
Another change, which I welcome, is that I now invite my readers to make comments, and interact with me.
There has been a problem which is to do with what is called SEO (Search Engine Optimization). I don’t want to lose the positions in Google, for example, which have been in prominent places for a long time now. But one also needs to avoid any “404s” showing up, in other words a dead link. This has meant the arduous task of tagging old entries with the “301″ tag, which means that the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is redirected to a different permanent address on a different server.
As well, there has been a problem getting the old internal and external links to work, especially the pictures. Pictures and videos are all important these days. Readers/subscribers have become more sophisticated, and expect all the bells and whistles to be available. So we’re working on it.
Bear with me. I’m no expert, and this is all a learning experience for me too. But I want to get my story out in the best way possible.
The next stop will be an E-Book. Stay tuned.
