Housekeeping Issues

I have a couple housekeeping things that have come up.

First, it has been suggested to me that I should try to get an Offline Version out before the election. I would try to include excerpts from the Bloggers' Debate, as well as information about the Pilot Program (since the Tribune is obviously going to studiously ignore the story).

I have some problems, though. If I get the thing done this weekend, I can probably email it up to the publisher over the weekend. If so, I might be able to get it printed, leaving 6 days to distribute it before the election. The short timing leaves two issues. First, how do I distribute it in 6 days? If anyone wants to volunteer to help, please email me at fallsblog@yahoo.com.

Second, I need to sell a few ads to cover the cost. I'm going $150.00 for a full page, $100.00 for a half page, and $80.00 for a quarter page. Any takers? I'm already out of pocket a few hundred dollars on this election and, considering that I can't even vote in it, I would like to at least break even on the print version.

The next housekeeping matter is the move. I am going to move this blog, I think, to Wordpress at www.electriccityweblog.com. Please go over, check out the template, and let me know what you think. Do you like it? No? Leave me a comment somewhere or an email, if you wouldn't mind.

We now resume our regularly scheduled programming. LK? Wolfpack? Anonymous?

Have you tried squarespace.com?

I've tried Squarespace -- it's OK, but doesn't compare to WP hosted on your own domain.

Believe me -- I'm not an expert on anything in this world, but I've been blogging for over 7 years, and have tried many, many platforms (Blogger, Movable Type, GreyMatter, Vox, Squarespace, Twitter, etc) -- none of them come close to Wordpress!

Hutch, I haven't tried it. But David is my guru, and I'm taking his word for it!

GeeGuy;

If/when you move ECW, will the archive go with you?

Or will we start from scratch?

I'll leave the blogger site up. Can't waste all that research!

I don't host my blog at Wordpress (I have my own server) but I do use Wordpress for my blogging software. I have tried four other peices of blogging software and I simply wouldn't use anything else. Wordpress is wonderful, scalable, and most of customizable.

I checked it out and I like the features. Only probem may be an occasional advertisement cropping up somewhere. I say give it a try as long as you don't loose any of the excellent older posts and data archieves....JT

Wordpress is a good platform but to me they are all much the same, it is only down to what you prefer, yes wordpress is very pliable but so is blogger, I blog from my home in the UK and from my italian property and use both platforms, i prefer neither and use them just to seperate my own blogs.

Hello .. firstly I would like to send greetings to all readers. After this, I recognize the content so interesting about this article. For me personally I liked all the information. I would like to know of cases like this more often. In my personal experience I might mention a book called Generic Viagra in this book that I mentioned have very interesting topics, and also you have much to do with the main theme of this article.
