Travelogue Returns Home

Song of the Open Road is coming to the end of its days of roaming the wide, wide earth. We are moving on, trying new things, and always tearing down whatever we create.

This blog will continue publication at http://www.vagabondjourney.com/travelogue/ has been good to me. We worked our way up to a page rank of 4/10, and are getting around 500 unique visitors a day. But a time for a change has come, as I have matured a little in my understanding of how internet publishing works.

Although I own the URL to this blog, it is still published to the Blogger server, and I am not in possesion of my raw files. I do not like this too much, as it seems to be a far too shaky of slab of groun to stand on. What would happen if something, somewhere went wrong? I would have no complete backup of all the work that I publish on here. This is something that I would prefer to keep out of peril.

So I began publishing with blogger to my own server at http://www.vagabondjourney.com/. I like the Blogger system, and I think that it is a very good way to publish a blog. I just want to be in possession of the files that put so much time into creating.

So we are starting all over again.

These previous 400 posts will remain on http://www.vagabondjourney.com/travelogue/ but all new entries will be at the new address.

Please go to http://www.vagabondjourney.com/travelogue to continue on with the Song of the Open Road story.

If you suscribe to the RSS feeds, you may also want to update the feed url, as it has also changed (and please let me know if this works!!!!).

Thank you kind friends and gentle readers.

Walk Slow,
