Moving to a monthly archive
I figure I owe my readers an explanation for wiping the blog clean.
I ran into some problems yesterday with the blog layout. First, the byline and date were running together. When I tried to fix it, Blogger somehow deleted all of the comments on the posts and messed up the format of new Disqus comments. Then, I couldn't get Disqus to go back to the correct login format. This was more than a little frustrating.
I don't even know what the problem was, much less how to fix it. So rather than try to clean all of this up, I wiped the entire archive hosted on Google's Blogger and went with a completely "new" blog with a clean template. From this point forward, all of the individual post pages will be on the the home page and will be linked from the blog. ConservaTibbs.com will be a monthly archive of all new posts. Comments are still enabled, but only for new posts. Comments will use Blogger's native comment system and will be in their own page.
I looked into hosting the blog on WordPress.com but I am not familiar with WP and I'm not up to learning a completely new platform, especially on short notice.
The comments may be gone, but all of the archives back to 1997 are on the home page, as before. Unfortunately, a large number of links to posts on ConservaTibbs.com are now broken.
Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
