Besides hosting this podcast, I also have for the last seven years written and published a blog titled “Rich Kirkpatrick’s Weblog” which is now “Rich Kirkpatrick’s Blog.” Here is the scoop:
I launched Rich Kirkpatrick’s Weblog about seven years ago. Back then, “weblog” meant something, and my name was easy to recall since fewer people blogged back in the first decade or the 2000s. But, now its time to rebrand, relaunch and help a whole new crew of readers find me in the noisy world of the WWW. So, my blog “rkweblog.com” is now “rkblog.com” and if you forget that, well the 301 redirects will get you here. But, doesn’t that URL rock?!
In 2010 a web developer and friend coded a site and designed the look of my blog for me and I wanted to badly to have the URL rkblog.com. When I found out it was available I was so excited until the price tag for bidding started above $2000 for the aged domain. A wholesaler of domains was kind enough to allow me to have a bulk price, even after the sale ended. And, presto, for under $100 I have rkblog.com!
So, PLEASE, if you already link to this blog, please change to rkblog.com. If yousubscribe, all feed coding will follow. Thanks to so many of you that have encouraged me to keep writing and who have engaged in meaningful, life-changing conversation these past years. Here is to another seven years…at least!
