New Blog in the Clouds

If you’re seeing this then you’ve connected with my new blog setup! Yeah! Leave a comment to let me know the transition worked. If you notice anything odd(er) then let me know. I still have a few posts to transition over but most of it is here now. My blog is now on a cloud type web server which should result in greater reliability.

Outdoors: 35°F/9°F 0.5″ Snow, Cloudy
Tiny Cottage: 70°F/68°F

    Looks good from this angle…

  2. Trey Jackson says:

    Works like a charm – no hiccup in the RSS feed.

  3. Ryan says:

    Google reader found it.

  4. Mel says:

    Looks good to me.

    The only difference is the URL, and I didn’t notice that until you mentioned it. As to stability, I’ll cross my fingers for you.

  6. Susan Lea says:

    It shows up in my blog roll with the new post.

    Looks good to me.
    I thought you were in the cloud earlier. When I read that your servers burned I wondered how the cloud caught fire.

  8. Karl says:

    same blog roll–nice.

  9. Worked fine for me in Google Reader.

    Looks good from here. But I do have to reenter my comment info to post a comment. That is the only change I notice.

    • Once the system learns you that should settle down. Also, anyone who had subscribed to posts or the old blog will probably have to subscribe again. That is a bit of a bother. I tried transferring subscribers over but couldn’t get it to work.

    Looking good, Walter.

    Looks good from here – I MISSED YOU!!

  13. Interestingly, my web site on the new cloud server seems to be working fine but now I can’t get to it. This morning I could but now this afternoon I can’t. Other people can see it. It looks like the DNS had propagated but then hiccuped. This should settle down. Keep leaving comments if you are able to see this post as it gives me a sense of how it is doing.

    Same as Bryan and David G.

    I got to the blog without noticing anything different but I have a question unrelated to blog connecting. We have two gilts that will farrow within the coming week. We are planning for them to farrow in the eight by eight three sided metal sided shed with deep hay bedding. The front/open side is four feet high, the back three feet.

    I’m dubious of success as we are in Northern Minnesota and I don’t see it being warm enough for the pigs to survive. Temperatures have been mild all winter and we may have some forty degree days ahead but it could easily be minus seven as it was yesterday overnight or colder.

    I hung clear plastic over the front with slits every foot and a half to keep some heat in and wind out. Should the shed be as tight as possible? Ideally we should have more space or another shed for privacy I understand. What do you think? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Glad your site is up and running again.

  24. Diane N. says:

    Your site works for me. I use Firefox.

    When I clicked my saved bookmark it brought me to a directory tree of your files, I had to navigate to the parent directory to get the webpage to resolve correctly.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I’ve set a redirect on this end. Update your bookmark from to just and that will then go directly to the new web server location for the blog.

      Side note: If you leave your real email address it is helpful incase I need to ask you a question to figure it out.

      Word to the wise: You leave bread crumbs on the web whether you leave your name and email address or not. I’ll leave the fields as you chose but Anonymous is not.

    Love your blog. Thanks for being so open with sharing your knowledge. It has been a really really really big help for our family as we get our farm going over this past year and a half. We are modeling our farm on how you are doing things in a more natural way and I feel so godo about it. I was raised on a conventional farm. I wanted to farm but I did not want to do it that way. What you do is right. It is good. Glad you were able to move to a new server. If you ever right a book I am buying!
