Sit tight

in Uncategorized

There’ll be a little weirdness here at the ol’ Daily Peg
for the next few days. We’ve finally grown up and gotten our own
TypePad account, so the blog will be migrating, with cleaned up links
on the side rails and various other changes. Plus, we’re putting a
placeholder marketing site up at the main domain in the hopes that
folks will stop thinking that this blog is our final product.

For now, all domains will still work, but in a few days, those using
the "shapeofdays.com" URLs and RSS feeds will need to make a switch.
For all I know, there’ll be a brief time where the site isn’t
accessible at all.

Confused yet? Good. We’re in this together. Better instructions TK.

In the meantime, I’m not going to post much here, because I’ve
already ported the content to the new site, and I don’t want to have to
post everything twice.

Also, be warned that if you make a comment or trackback during this period, it won’t make the move.

I’ve gotten emails from several folks with new information on the
SPCA imbroglio, and I’ll deal with that a.) once the blog is moved and
b.) once I decide how to handle it. There’s a good related post brewing
about what this whole experience has taught me about stand-alone
citizen journalism (as opposed to a hybrid). To do justice to
investigating the interesting stuff coming my way (and the loose ends
from the earlier posts), I’d have to drop my other unpaid job that has
little to do with investigating animal seizure issues. Obviously can’t
do that, but I want to give a fair hearing to these folks.

So hang tight friends. We should be back in the game in 24-48 hours. soon.


UPDATE SUNDAY NIGHT: It’s harder to move a blog than one might
think, at least all the prettiness and formatting thereof. Should be
done by Tuesday. In the meantime, you can go ahead and update your
bookmarks:

  • www.pegasusnews.com will get you our homepage. Just a placeholder for now.
       
  • blog.pegasusnews.com is the blog address. It might go dark for a couple hours, but should remain the same.
       
  • All RSS feeds should remain unchanged. Let me know if that’s not the case.
