Just a quick note to let you all know that some changes are coming to Mudflats!
Little did I imagine when I started writing my little blog, all alone up here in Alaska, that things would unfold as they have. I remember on the morning that Sarah Palin became McCain’s VP pick, and I tapped out a post about it, wondering if I’d get higher traffic than usual that day. I did.
I’ve been overwhelmed with the response to the blog. The result of the last two and a half weeks has been two and a half million hits, more than 25,000 comments, so much email I can hardly read it, and best of all, a community of intelligent, committed, thoughtful individuals who knock my socks off every day.
It’s become obvious to me that my humble little WordPress blog needs some overhauling to keep pace with this flourishing community. With the help of my amazing tech guru from half a world away, Mudflats is about to become a lot more “user friendly” for all of you. There will be new features, among them discussion forums that will facilitate conversations, and keep it all a bit more organized and easy to follow. In the meantime, I’m going to post an open thread when I pack it up for the day (still gotta sleep!) to relieve some of the comment congestion.
So, thank you all for your incredible outpouring of support, and your commitment to becoming informed and engaged about the issues before us in this incredibly pivotal time in history.
Look for changes hopefully coming within a week!
