If you see a few funky things on Route 66 News in the coming days, there’s probably good reason for it.
Route 66 News is moving from WordPress.com to a hosted site using the WordPress.org platform. It should be a fairly seamless transition, and you shouldn’t have to update your route66news.com bookmarks. News coverage of the Mother Road will continue as usual — or as best as possible — during this time.
I’m paying WordPress.com to make this transition, so I hold a fair amount of faith this should be accomplished with little fuss.
But, again, moving a large website goes into somewhat uncharted territory for me, and Murphy’s Law might be a factor in a few things.
The bottom line to you readers: Please hang in there, and everything will get ironed out eventually.
Incidentally, the host for the new incarnation of Route 66 News has been supplied by GRandall Web Design. Its owner, Guy Randall, has been a Route 66 enthusiast for a long time, and has built websites for several businesses on the Mother Road, as you can see here.
I’ll make more announcements about the future of Route 66 News as soon as this transition is finished and everything works smoothly. One of the changes won’t be drastic, but it should be exciting for a number of businesses associated with Route 66. Stay tuned.
