Though wordpress.com hosting has been reliable and cheap for the past few years, it allows very little customization. Because I want to add some new features, I am moving the site to a shared hosting provider. The first new feature is an interactive map of trip reports, which should be much better than the state categories for browsing trip reports geographically. Click on a marker to bring up a link to the associated trip report.
In the interest of not breaking old links to
http://drdirtbag.wordpress.com/, I will keep the old site up as long as it is free, but new content will only appear on the new site. Links to
http://drdirtbag.com/ should work as before, though there will doubtless be some bugs in the migration. I have not yet migrated subscriptions, but will do so before abandoning the old blog, so there is no need to re-subscribe.
Please let me know if anything breaks, and feel free to offer suggestions for how to make the site more entertaining and useful.
