Final Stages of Moving the Blog Ring

First, I hope you all are having a manageable back-to-school season. Remember, in a couple of weeks the routine will return and, with any luck, the your fiber fun time will return!!

Second, there are no new blogs to announce this week. Feel free to share the info about the blog ring with your fiber friends. Right now we have 141 active sites. I'd love to see that get to 300.

Final Moving Really Underway
I have started to delete sites from RingSurf. I'm sending a final moving information mail to all the members, then deleting their listings after the messages are sent. This process is greatly simplified by cutting and pasting e-mail addresses and using a message template, but it still takes some time. I've been delaying the actual deleting, to give people more time to move to, but it's been several months and e-mails now.

Just a reminder:
If you change your blog template or move your blog and wish to remain a part of the blog ring, you will need to paste your ring code into your new blog. Otherwise, your blog gets flagged as "broken" when I check the ring.

If you didn't save a copy of the ring code, you can get another copy by logging into and clicking the "get code" button. Then paste that blog of HTML wherever you'd like it in your blog. If you have questions, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at msmorenna (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll help as best I can.

New Additions Week ending 8/9/2008

We're up to 138 active members of the ring. This week Dog Face Girls joined the ring. (I've decided to start listing the joining blogs from this point forward.)

I'm still sending out e-mail to the ring-surf members encouraging them to switch over. Once I get all the e-mails sent, I'll wait three weeks then kill the old ring. Theoretically everybody has received at least two e-mails by now when I sent bulk mail, but I wanted to give it one more try with an individual message. I would rather not cut off people who still want to be part of the ring.

Best of luck with all your fibery activities!
