Candy Blog is now at CandyBlog.net

DSC_2641cropbWhen I started Candy Blog about five years ago I imagined it was going to be one of the many blogs I wrote and ran, all would fall under my unique domain called Typetive. Typetive is a word I coined that basically means talkative, only with a keyboard. I’d been keeping a blog since 2001 called Fast Fiction about my National Novel Writing Month exploits but I have so many other obessions. So I thought I’d have one for whalewatching, one for my novel writing & process, one for my playwriting and of course one for candy.

Well, the candy kind of took over.

I’ve held the www.CandyBlog.net domain for nearly as long as Typetive.com but just never got around to doing the migration. After hemming and hawing about how it might affect my search engine optimization, I realized that Candy Blog belongs on its own proper domain so that it can grown and flourish.

On March 1st, 2010 Candy Blog moved from Typetive.com to CandyBlog.net.

Nothing really changes for readers. The old links you may have for typetive.com will redirect without interruption to the same pages on candyblog.net. If you have me on your blogroll, you can update with the new web address. If you’re using a feed widget, you don’t have to do a thing, Feedburner took care of that.

Feed readers will notice a new improvement. At the end of each review you will actually get the summary stats of the product. So you’ll know everything everyone else knows when they visit the blog. The only thing missing would be the comments - so you’ll still have to visit to get those.

  1. Congratulations on the success. I enjoy reading every article, and this is my most e-mailed feed of any that flows through my RSS reader. Your discovery of lesser-known items is slowly ruining er… improving my life! Thanks!

  2. This is the sort of announcement that needs to be preceded by some sort of fanfare.  Something along the lines of what you hear before every 20th Century Fox movie.

    Congratulations on the move.
