Changes to the Eyes on VIs blog

Good news! I have gotten approval to spend some of my work time on the Eyes on VIs blog, so I intend to start posting more regularly.

Now for some bad news... Blogger is discontinuing FTP support, which means I can no longer use it to author my blog (unless I go back to Blogspot hosting).

However, I view this as an opportunity to re-launch Eyes on VIs and take advantage of things that were not available when I started the blog four years ago, including the ability to mirror posts on Community.

Unfortunately, this means that I may lose some of my old content - or, at least, have to move it to an archive where it is not as accessible.

Please bear with me through the house cleaning and soon we'll have a shiny, new version of Eyes on VIs with lots of new content!

Whichever platform you choose, please select one which has an RSS feed for all comments. Otherwise, following comments becomes practically impossible.

Yair - I agree, subscribing to comments would be great! Can you recommend any other blogs that have this feature in a way that you like to use? (I could look at what tools they are using). Thanks!

JKI's blogs work like that - there's one feed for the posts and another feed for the comments. You can ask Jim or Michael what they're using.

Yeah, I also have your blog on my RSS feed so I don't miss any posts. It will be more interesting now that you will be writing more regularly but RSS is a very important feature if you want more followers, for posts and comments!

I think NI is making the right call in letting you blog on your work time.

Good luck!
