We’ll be at the same (URL) address but we will look different. Very different. So if you don’t recognise us and think you might have stumbled into the wrong place – don’t worry – you’re in the right place. So don’t adjust your set (to borrow an old adage)!
For the first couple of days the new site will be a ‘work in progress’ while new features are tweaked and the appearance is fine-tuned, so bear with us during this process. You’ll still receive the same great content; that’s one thing that won’t be changing.
The need for change is a direct result of the incredible growth we’ve experienced here at The AIMN. From a humble blog twelve months ago we’ve grown into a medium that now attracts more than a half a million visits a month. With this in mind, we thought it appropriate to have a site developed which would adequately showcase the outstanding contributions from our authors and the brilliant commentary and debate from hundreds of our readers.
Tomorrow afternoon we will begin ‘migrating’ all the content from The AIMN to the new site. Some internet service providers are slower than others when it comes to refreshing their servers. What this means, in simple terms, is that some people – depending on who their ISP is – may not see the new site immediately. In some cases (especially with Bigpond, so I’m told), it could take up to 48 hours.
If by Wednesday you are not seeing the new site it may not be a good idea not to post a comment because it may be lost during the migration. Hopefully this won’t happen, but there’s always the possibility depending on your ISP. Keep refreshing your browser and the new site should appear in a short time.
Some of you may remember last year we made an attempt to set up a new site but thanks to yours truly it ended up a real mess. I tried my hand at web design and used an American company as a web host. Lesson learned. This time everything is being done by an Australian company, which is fitting: The Australian Independent Media Network . . . Could it really use anybody else other than an Australian provider?Follow @MigloMT
