Revo Republic Transition

I really hope people will start using this.  Eventually, it will be the blog.  My sincere hope is that some of you regular commentators will make original posts.   Remember, this is more informal than the old blog so just say what is on your mind.  No need to worry about whether it is post-worthy.  I can assure you that it is.  This is supposed to be more inclusive and more of a free-for-all.  Post away.

Three quick comments:

  1. Does all the survival info, i.e. how to properly prepare roadkill, belong in the “Gear” category?
  2. The “search” box brings me to The Real Revo. No big deal but maybe a future need when this grows.
  3. All of these permissions strangely have created some writer’s block. I’ll work on that. I like the new site.

Everything in the old blog will stay there.  It will all be available in the archive.

I will look into the search block thing.  Soon this will be the landing page.

I am glad you approve.  Change is hard.  I know that.

This is a Great Idea!! It'll take a little gettin' used too but that's o.k.!

Agreed.  If only we can get everyone to internalize the fact that they can now start new conversations and that they don't have to wait for the cobs to post!

Just a note, I've noticed there are still some new articles still appearing on the old site.

I will continue to cross post them to the Revo FB page until they stop. Or I can stop now if you like.

That is fine.  Works for me.  Eventually they should stop.  Old habits die hard I guess.

It is still very hard for me to keep aware of the fact that I can post topics now.  I see things elsewhere and wonder why they are not showing up here for discussion, and then I remember that I could be posting the topic if I want, but I balk at it quite often.  I don't think I could do as good a job at it as the regular co-bloggers from the old site.

I really miss Jimm22, Uke, Notamobster, and several others not only as co-bloggers, but also as regular commenters.  You all did such a great job here.

It was a decade of unpaid hard work. While it was a labor of love, it was also very time-consuming. It felt to me like we had done what we intended to do and we all have other interests, responsibilities and so forth. Nothing lasts forever.

To be honest with you, I really am enjoying this format.  It's less specialized and more of a grab-bag type site now.  It's more, say, inclusive?  A bigger tent?  I have a feeling this will really take off.  Sincerely.

Love your "Repeating Past" quote, R.D.

I'm liking this new way of doing the blog.  Takes getting used to, yeah, but it's not hard.  I like it.
