I was going to wait until Monday to announce this, and the "official" launch won't happen until then, but Candleblog is moving. I've been done with GeekLog (Candleblog's engine) for a long time now, and after four years, I'm finally biting the bullet and jumping ship over to Wordpress (oh, the mixed metaphors). The final straw (hee!) was the release of Firefox 3, which not only rendered Candleblog's left sidebar all wrong, but it also broke my ability to use the quick link functionality in the post editor -- not that it's Firefox's fault -- I'm sure the problem lay somewhere within the bowls of Candleblog and it was just above my pay grade to fix.
The new Candleblog will live at a different url, but never fear, it's a really easy change to make. Instead of www.candleboy.com/candleblog, you will find the blog at www.candleboy.com. Yup, it's the root directory, baby! The blog is up now but there isn't really any content there yet. But as of Monday, it will be the official new home of Candleblog. w00t!
I'm leaving this GeekLog site up for posterity (though I'll kill all of the user accounts, etc. and close commenting) so all of the permalinks will remain intact. I'll add a top post sending folks over to the new digs.
In the meantime, please help me out and peruse the new site, test it out, and report any problems or design shenanigans to me.
