No, I’m not back yet, just here to make a brief announcement.
Café Whispers is moving to a new home in the not too distant future. I’ll be saying goodbye to cafewhispers.wordpress.com and saying hello to http://www.cafewhispers.org.
Only the address will be changing, at the moment, as we move to bigger premises, ie, more data storage space. There is a limit to the amount of data we can have in WordPress.com and it is fast being approached. We may lose a few things along the way, such as the number of site visits and other stats but I’m hopeful these can all be retained. It’s wait and see.
The new premises will come with a lot more extras, which I’ll add to the blog at a later date once I learn how to drive them. Not being the world’s greatest tech-head, this may take time. 😦
The new site will spring up as soon as my web hosts have transferred everything from the old address, but it won’t be just yet. So don’t panic if one day you can’t find us – just trot along to http://www.cafewhispers.org. Make a note of that address; I look forward to seeing you there.
There is a possibility I’m going to explore which might mean that this old site can remain open as well, which could see it handed over to one or some of our regulars if they wish to maintain it. If it is one or more of the current authors I will ensure that their posts remain with the site. Leave a message on this thread if you’re interested.
Yes, it’s a bit of a dilemma for me. There is no choice but to upgrade the site but all the same I’m very sad to have to let go of the old one. But there’s no way I’d be able to look after both of them. Whoever takes this site over will have to do so on their own back as I won’t have to time to be of any assistance.
This is all dependent, of course, on this site being able to remain open once the new site is up and running. I’ll check that out with WordPress.
In the meantime, don’t panic. We’re still here for the time being and you’ll get plenty of advance notice before the changeover.
