Big trails website change

Your trailsnet blogging experience has just gotten a little easier.
Starting on December 1, 2010, the trailsnet blog and trailsnet home page have become one in the same. So now, instead of entering www.trailsnet.blogspot.com to visit the blog, you just need to visit www.trailsnet.com

Don't worry, if you forget, or you had the blogspot address bookmarked, you'll automatically be redirected to the correct page.

This one move solved four problems.

  1. My old home page on the main trailsnet website was not exactly up-to-snuff with the rest of the awesome site. Now, it is much more functional and pleasant to view.
  2. It was a pain to have to enter that whole blogspot URL to get to the blog, not to mention it didn't sync with the rest of the trailsnet website.
  3. Now, I don't need a separate blog page in the website since the index page is both the home page and the blog combined.
  4. The oodles of content on the blog is going to improve the trailsnet website SEO, so more people will be able to find the wealth of information about trails that is located on trailsnet.com.
In the meantime, there will be a short period of time where the trailsnet blog page will be inoperable. Hopefully it won't be too much of an inconvenience and will be back online quickly.

Thanks for your patience.
