Over the next few days, I’ll be making some changes to my website. One of those changes is to, finally, move my website to the chickensintheroad.com domain. I’ve used suzannemcminn.com ever since my salad days on the internet, lo these many years ago. (This website has existed since around 1996 or 1997, I can’t even remember anymore.) I used to run this site for information and promotion about my books. Near the end of 2007, I launched Chickens in the Road and I bought the chickensintheroad.com domain at that time but never actually switched over from the technical standpoint. (That URL works now and always has–as a redirect to suzannemcminn.com.) To make it simpler to find my site, I’ll be moving to that domain, but never fear, your old links and bookmarks will still work. (I’ll be using a global redirect for all suzannemcminn.com links.)
I’m also making some navigational changes that will make it easier for you to find posts in categories you’re interested in. And easier for my male readers to pretend that knitting doesn’t even exist. One of my male readers told me recently that he almost fell into a coma whilst reading one of my crochet posts then a few minutes later his secretary, who also reads my site, told him that was her favorite post ever! (Don’t worry, that wasn’t said to me in offense, it was funny.) I think the new navigation will help please more people more of the time.
The new set-up will also make it possible for me to sometimes post twice in a day and also make room for the big Big BIG surprise I’ve been telling you about for awhile. (That’s coming soon, too! But not quite yet.)
What isn’t changing is everything else. I’ll still be here every day posting about old-fashioned recipes and crafts, my observations of other people doing my hoeing for me, and lots of lazy chickens and cookies for Clover.
Hopefully, the technical work will cause minimal interruption in service, but if you should visit over the next few days and find things wonky, or if my site is offline, know that it’s temporary and shouldn’t last more than a few minutes. Please bear with me. I have exciting things in store! Thank you so much for being here. The most important part of this website is you!
