Welcome to the new On The Farm. The old iBlog site has been archived, and all the entries copied over into a new Tinderbox site (apart from a few pictures – they’ll follow). I’ve even played around with the blog templates and customised things a bit. There’s a fairly steep learning curve with Tinderbox, but that goes with the extra power that I wanted, and apart from maintaining this blog, it may also be useful a tool for organising the research for my books.
One consequence of this change is that I’m about to kiss goodbye to many of my page hits. I changed to the wonderful Statcounter a week or two ago (thanks to a tip on the Freeway discussion list), and I’m revelling in the information it lets me see about all my visitors. Not that I’m overwhelmed by the volume of hits or anything, but it is interesting to see how many referrals I get from search engines, and what searches lead you to me.
The Tinderbox On The Farm has a different page structure to the iBlog site, and so a lot of those referrals are going to bounce – or at least they will until the search engines catch up.
In the meantime, I hope you like the new look and structure. Let me know what you think of the changes (if you know what the old site looked like).
