Fall 2008 Brings Changes to the Blog

Posted by wastatelib on October 8, 2008

Update August 5, 2008:

All of the Washington State Library blogs have been consolidated in a new location!  The address for one stop shopping is:

http://blogs.secstate.wa.gov/library/

Hope to see you there!

Some of you have been kind enough to email and remind us that it’s been ages since our last post.  Yes, indeed it has – and we apologize!  But we’re happy to announce that as of this week, the Washington State Library Public Services Blog will be moving to a new home on the Secretary of State’s website:

http://blogs.secstate.wa.gov/wslpublic/

While we’ve been very happy with WordPress over the last two years, we’re even more happy to find a permanent home on our official servers! 

What this means for you:

  • Those of you whose computers were blocked from accessing blogging websites like WordPress should now be able to access our most recent news and features.
  • You shouldn’t notice any change in our content.  We’ll still feature Newspaper Gems, Government Documents, and notices about our Events.  We’re also looking at the possibility of posting book reviews and expanding our Research Success Stories.
  • You may think that things look a little sparse compared to our digs on WordPress, but we’re working to recreate much of the content found on the tabbed pages here on the State Library’s website
  • This is a great time to let us know what features you’d like to see here.  If you have ideas about Washington, Northwest, or State Library- themed content you’d like to read about, just leave a comment.  You can also drop us an email at: askalibrarian@secstate.wa.gov.  We read all our comments and are eager to gather new ideas on how to improve.

Thanks to all of you who have supported this “little blog that could”!  Please visit us at our new home:

  1. Psst! What’s the RSS feed for the new site? I could only find your LibraryThing feed.

    Hi Daniel -

    The feed for the new blog is:

    http://blogs.secstate.wa.gov/wslpublic/?feed=rss2#

    I’ve added a subscribe button at the top of the right hand sidebar too.

    Thanks for catching that!
