Our Blog is Getting a New Home

"Eventually, all good things must get face lifts." This is true both in alarmingly superficial subsections of Beverley Hills, and on the Internet.

Yesterday afternoon we launched a brand-new website. You can check it out at bicyclecoalition.org (yup, same domain). But one goal of our website redesign was to better integrate our blog into the rest of the site.

And so, we now have a new blog, at a new location: bicyclecoalition.org/blog.
Meet the new blog/ Same as the old blog / Except now on Wordpress and / with different CSS styling

On the new blog you will find a handful of blog posts which were originally posted here. It's like with a new house - you carry over some old furniture just to have something to sit on while waiting for the PECO guy. But starting henceforth we will be filling the new blog with the blog-post-equivalent of antique mirrors, a sectional or two, and a cherry or Brazilian walnut dresser if we can find one in our budget.

What does this mean for those of you who have read our blog via emails sent to your inbox?
We are working to get a blog-to-email subscription service up and running soon. Until then you can use services such as Feedly.com to subscribe.

What does this mean for our Yahoo group listservs?
We will not be posting new blog posts to those groups, as we are trying to consolidate the channels through which we share information (we only have so much time & effort to monitor everything). However, we do want to facilitate the continued communication among those counties with active groups. Shoot an e-mail to Nicholas at nicholas@bicyclecoalition.org if you'd like to be part of that conversation.

This blog will remain online as an archive. So if you want to flip through these 2,900+ blog posts and reminisce about the good old days, you can. But remember - as Peter de Vries said: "Nostalgia is not what it used to be."

Thanks for reading. And thanks to the William Penn Foundation, whose funding made this website redesign possible. We'll see you at bicyclecoalition.org/blog.
