Bloggus Interruptus - I've Moved - Welcome!

For those of you who know me, I've been blogging steadily since March 2005 from the same location. It's been a good home, but since launching the IP Communications Insights portal with Marc Robins earlier this year, I've felt it necessary to have my blog hosted here, in a 100% neutral location. After all, the vision behind our portal has been to give a voice to the indie analyst community, so this is really the natural home for my blog.

It has been my intention to gradually migrate over to this location for some time, but projects and travel seems to keep getting in the way. That was the plan, but my hand was forced on Friday when I learned that my blog had gone 404. It appears to have been abruptly shut down without notice by my host.

As such, I have not had the chance to let my readers know in advance, so things are going to be out of sorts for a while. I'll be sending out a variety of email notifications over the next few days to fellow bloggers and my industry contacts, and hope to rebuild my readership as quickly as possible. I was hoping my host would provide an automatic re-direct, so people wouldn't lose me out of the blue, but that's not in the cards. Apologies for that, but I have no control over the administration of my traffic. Until now.

For now, all I can say is thanks for finding me, and please update your files and links for my blog, and pass this along to anyone else you know who is wondering what happened.

I'll be blogging here full time now, so this is the only address you'll need.

As you can see, it's a different platform, and I've done my best to replicate the look and feel of what I had before. I'd love to hear your thoughts, as well as any suggestions for other things you'd like to see here.

I guess all good things come to a another new beginning. Congrats Jon on the new blog site and I'll keep following.

Shai/Andy - thanks for the good words. I really appreciate that, and thanks for sticking with me. I've got a lot of bases to cover to update people on the change, so it will take some time to get the word out.

Jon,

Welcome back and good to talk to you earlier - you still need to change the link on your website!
