After a slow start in February, 2005, Elvisblog has seen steady growth in the number of visitors to the site. On November 10, the 25,000th visitor checked in to read the latest nuggets of news, history, and commentary about Elvis. Thanks for your continued support of Elvisblog.
Moving To A New Blogware Provider
Since its inception in February, Elvisblog has come to you on the free MyBlogSite platform. At the end of November, they are shifting Elvisblog to BlogHarbor, a service with monthly charges. It’s not too costly, so I will continue to post new, interesting articles on Elvis Presley every Sunday.
If you checked into Elvisblog on Thanksgiving Day you certainly noticed the new ads. This was something totally out of my control, and I derived no income derived from it. I guess MyBlogSite figured they could do anything they wanted, since they were terminating my service in a week, anyway. There will be no ads on the new Elvisblog on BlogHarbor, with the possible exception of me selling some of my Elvis stuff.
One advantage BlogHarbor offers is the ability to change your URL web address. Sometime before the end of the year, the web address for Elvisblog will be changing to www.elvisblog.net. For a while after that, if you type in the original address, you will be switched automatically to www.elvisblog.net. Unfortunately, they haven't confirmed how long this will go on, so it seems important to give advance notice now. Please write down www.elvisblog.net somewhere, just in case you don’t visit the site again until March. I’d hate for you to type in the old address, get a message saying the URL no longer exists, and not know how to find the site. Remember, it will be www.elvisblog.net in 2006.
