As many of you will have noticed, Monticello has a brand-new shiny website. This development came along in October, and as part of Phase II of the new website, we’ll be launching a whole bunch of social media features, including a Megablog. That’s what I call it, anyway. This will be one big blog containing posts from all sorts of Monticello staff members, including myself.
Which brings me to the point of this post. I’ll be ceasing blogging operations here as of Monday, December 20, and will resume blogging operations over at Monticello.org. It won’t be hosted on my beloved WordPress, but don’t worry, I’ll still be me, and I’ve been assured that it will still be called “A Summary View.” All that, and you’ll have a chance to hear from some of my inimitable compatriots here at Monticello, too. If you’d like to revise your bookmarks, here’s the new URL (it will probably still say “Page Not Found” until Monday).
So, this isn’t really a goodbye or an ending, just a metamorphosis – an awesome butterfly-type metamorphosis, not a creepy Franz Kafka-like Metamorphosis. That said, I do want to say that I’ve loved blogging here at WordPress, and I’m truly honored that people have taken the time to read what I’ve written. I’ve met lots of wonderful and fascinating people through this blog, and I hope you’ll all stick with me as I trundle over to my new blogging digs!
