Hello World?? 1WD? WTF?!?? (or "We’re Movin’ On Up!")

Vinted on February 10, 2009 binned in about 1winedude blog

Those of you who have been trying to visit www.1WineDude.com today have probably noticed that it looks a little… well… screwed up.

And I mean, more screwed up than usual.

That’s because 1WineDude.com is in the process of moving. This little blog is gettin’ all grows up’d, and is (finally) moving to its own web host on the WordPress platform.

Why am I doing this?

Mostly because Blogger, the platform that I’ve used for a few different blogs for several years, has gone kind of crazy lately, and continues to tag my blog as SPAM and locking it. Now, I know that some of my posts don’t make a lot of sense, but hitting me with a SPAM tag is probably taking things a tad too far.

Anyway, in the not too distant future, www.1WineDude.com will no longer send you here. It will send you to a brand new website. Different look, same content.

Or, as they say: New Label. Same Old Plonk!

For now, 1WineDude.com will take you to a generic WordPress template. Hello World! Just like the Jeffersons, we’re movin’ on up!

    Good luck w/ the move!

    I need to pick your brain on this once you get all the way over to WP.

  • dhonig

    Good luck, and DM me (Twitter) or email me when it happens, so I can update links at 2 Days per Bottle, The 89 Project, and the Wine Twitters list.

    congrats on the new site. i’ve been enjoying your site for a while now and love the topics you focus on – very different than most wine blogs.

  • Jim Eastman

    Seems like the move is going pretty well. :-)

    Not to be nitpicky, but any chance we can get full posts back in the RSS feed? Thanks!

  • joewine

    thanks, everyone!

    I *think* I fixed the RSS feed as well – thanks for pointing that out!
