Welcome to the New and Improved Parkway Rest Stop.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:38 pm

Right off the bat, I want to say that NONE of this would have happened without the help of my friend Craig at mtpolitics. In fact, the word “help” suggests that I did something and that all that Craig did was “help” me do it.

Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I did nothing but kvetch over the thought of moving off BlogSpot. Quite simply, Craig did it all. He set up the site from top to bottom. He asked if I would like to maintain the “look” of the old site, and, being somewhat fond of the “look” of the old site, I said, “yes.” As you can see, Craig hit the long ball.

There are still a couple wrinkles that I will have to iron out (e.g. the titles of the old posts are a little nuts), but I actually think that I can fix that over time. I also still have to learn how things work in my new home, but I look forward to learning.

So, I would appreciate it greatly if you would adjust your bookmarks and blogrolls to point to my new digs. What I would appreciate even more is if you would check out mtpolitics and add that site to your blogrolls for two reasons: (1) It is a terrific site (I’ve been a regular for more than a year), and (2) I doubt that there is a better guy in the blogosphere.

Now, please bear with me while I figure out how to pilot my new ship.

    Without a doubt, Craig is indeed one of the nicest guys in the blogosphere.
