"Why move?" you might ask. "What’s wrong with good ol’ Blogsome?"
Oh, nothing much. But we feel we’ve taken this reliable ol’ bucket of rust about as far as we can. I mean, this site is nice and all, but we feel that with SBN’s new platform and network of quality blogs, we can take this thing to the next level.
For starters, we’re most excited about the FanPosts feature, where anyone can add content about whatever (hopefully somehow related to Cal). For example, this morning reader RR left a comment on my ‘Diamond Notes’ post below, mentioning, "I don’t know if you guys heard about the murder in front of Top Dog yesterday (southside). …" Wow, no we did not. Crazy. Anyway, his comment was somewhat off-topic, as well as buried at the bottom of my post. BUT, on SBN, RR can write up his own FanPost about it, and it’ll appear on the front page, where everyone else can see and comment on it.
Anyway, it’s a neat setup, and TwistNHook already has our first post on the new site up now. Buried within his idiotic ramblings about boy bands from the late ’90s is some actual information. (It’s about two-thirds of the way down. You can pretty safely skip everything before that.) Go check it out!
One new feature: logins! With the new site, you’re going to have to get a login/password to comment. Sorry! However, it’s super-easy, takes like 10 seconds, and all you need to give us is your email address and a password. No personal information whatsoever. (I would steer clear of using any email addresses that contain your SSN/bank account number. Using david.w.pierce553586902@BankOfAmerica1728372833.com would probably be a bad idea.) Plus, if you already have an account at one of SBN’s other sites, you can just use the same username/password. Easy!
This site will remain, archiving everything we’ve done over the past year and a half, but this will be the last post on this site. Since that’s the case, I now give you an updated ‘Best Of’ listing, highlighting our best writing from the past 18 months. The stuff that kept you coming back. Most of you have probably seen all this, but if you’ve just stumbled upon our site, I’d suggesting starting here.
