Tubblog has a new home – update your links!

Tubblog LogoIt was this time last year that I finally moved this blog from Windows Live Spaces to the much more modern and flexible WordPress.com platform.

In the twelve months since that time, the number of readers who visit the blog every day has almost doubled and I’ve found myself chaffing under some of the restrictions WordPress.com (quite understandably) places on their free hosting accounts.

With that in mind, this blog has now moved across to a self-hosted WordPress site thanks to the good people at Heart Internet. Such a move should give me a lot more flexibility in terms of what I can do with the site.

  • If you’re a regular reader, then you shouldn’t notice any immediate changes. All the articles and comments have been transferred across to the new platform and any links to old articles will automatically forward to the new URL. Sadly, I couldn’t migrate all those Facebook “Likes” – but we’ll just live with that…
  • If you feature my blog on your blog roll – updating the link from https://tubblog.wordpress.com to www.tubblog.co.uk would be appreciated.
  • Screenshot of Feedburner E-Mail Subscription FormIf you’re an e-mail or RSS subscriber to the old site, I’m afraid you’ll need to re-subscribe – click on the RSS link at the bottom of the page, or the FeedBurner link within the right hand column.

I’ll be e-mailing all subscribers to advise them of the changes also.

One of those areas of flexibility is around the fact that the number of blog readers I’ve been getting from France, Germany and other non-English speaking European countries has risen exponentially. Many of you have reached out to me directly, but if you’re a reader in one of these countries, would you be interested in reading this blog in your native tongue? Translating the articles here is an option – but it depends on the demand, so let me know if this would be useful to you.

Finally – a huge thanks to the awesome Tim Carr at N7 Studios who facilitated the move to the new platform – the change happened absolutely seamlessly, and Tim was a consummate Professional throughout the project. A true WordPress expert.
