Kate welcomes BlogClan to their new home and Josh reappears to edit this section and remind everyone that he still exists: hello!
Our old camp was getting overcrowded by posts, pages and comments. With over a thousand posts and 200 thousand comments, the place was bursting at the seams. The WordPress platform just couldn’t cope with your fabulous enthusiasm and creativity.
So, in Clan tradition, we have trekked over the mountains to new territory. It has the same important places – a tavern, a hug page, Trailing Stars, chat and all the projects you are currently working on. I have streamlined the site a little and changed the look.
I realise change is never easy and you might feel disorientated in your new home. A lot of posts and pages have lost the sidebar – which you may find confusing, but all the important links are in the dropdown menus at the top of the page, or in the links in the footer at the bottom. And if you ever need the sidebar, just click on “Blog” at the top right hand corner of the header menu.
This is very much a work in progress and I appreciate your feedback. I want BlogClan to work for you, whilst being clean, and simple and easy to maintain.
I hope you like our new home and I’m looking forward to seeing the pages fill up with comments.
Our old camp will still exist but I will gradually stop moderating comments there. This is as much an adventure for me as for you. I hope we can have some fun settling into our new home.
PS There are a couple of secret “easter eggs” hidden in the new site. I wonder if anyone will find them?
