Well, I told everyone there was going to be some news, and here it is! We’re taking things up a step, and now are going to be operating from our own domain. First off, let me take a minute to thank Dave, who has been instrumental in the move to a little more sophisticated technology. I really appreciate all the help, Dave.
Second, let me take a minute to thank our readers. We’ve had a great year so far at neoHOUSTON. We’ve been averaging over 100 unique readers a day for the entire month of February, which I consider quite an accomplishment considering we only pulled in 100 unique readers on about 3 or 4 occasions in the first six months of the blog’s existence. Things have picked up a lot, and we’re happy about that, and happy to keep things improving.
Now, things probably don’t look terribly different at the moment. Part of that is because there’s a lot of pain involved in chaning one’s URL, and we’re trying not unload a completely different page on our readers all in one day, and most of the changes we’ve made are ‘under the hood,’ so to speak. I hope you will notice a few minor improvements in the appearance of the site, we can control that in more detail now. Over the next few weeks we’ll be unveiling more enhancements, so be sure to keep watching.
Lastly, I’d like to preview some of the content upcoming this week. I’ll be at the De Lange Conference VII at Rice University, which promises to be a very interesting examination of urban life and the future of our city. As we’ve received significant positive feedback on our coverage of meetings like this in the last two months, we’re going to keep it up.
So, welcome to the new website! We hope you enjoy it, and the incremental improvements you’ll see over the next few months. Thanks for reading!
