Eruptions

Eruptions is moving!


Big news from Eruptions (and me.)

Eruptions has always been an evolving space – it started as a little side project on WordPress that has grown over the last two-and-a-half years into a community of volcano enthusiasts. The blog has drawn over 2.5 million views and 1.5 million visits since I started it in May of 2008 – which, to me, is mindblowing – and I thank of all your for that. I also thank ScienceBlogs for helping more people find the blog over the last 18 months that I’ve been lucky to be hosted here.

However, with all things, change is sometimes needed. I’m not going to go into the details of my decision, but starting TODAY, Eruptions is moving to a new home –

http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/eruptions/

Update all your bookmarks and feeds!

This wasn’t an easy decision for me, but hopefully all of you will see that it is the right decision for Eruptions – so please join me over at the new site.

And remember, you can follow Eruptions on Twitter as well – @eruptionsblog – to keep up with all the volcano news.

Thanks again to ScienceBlogs … and here’s to the future!

    I’m allready there;)

    Newly Bowdlerized name and all. But something went wrong with the image-wiever over there, my noose became huge, me ears gargantuan and where did all that fur come from?

    @Dennis 5, and anyone else who’s hesitating – no need to use anything but what you have been using, it works OK with ‘first’ (whatever) name only filled in – no other info. than what they take here, e-maill address. Hope you stay. Looks different over there, works a bit differently, but hey – not willing to give up on this great gang and all the volcanoes.

    Ack…one thing I like about Scienceblogs is that you just pop up on my facebook…any way to do that from the new site? I only saw Twitter, and I could “like” specific articles, but I didn’t see any way to sign up for it sending Eruptions automatically to my Facebook feed. Do you have a Facebook page?

    Can’t register.

    I allowed a tracking cookie for bigthink.com, but can’t register … I guess the site demands I allow sleazy tracking cookies from all the other cross-tracking 3rd party sources listed there …

    doubleclick.net,
    quantserv.com,
    scorecardresearch.com
    crowdsience.com
    addthis.com

    Man, that sucks.

    I’m not allowing all that tracking and cross-tracking shit.

    Bye Eruptions

    @10: Huh, I haven’t heard about this problem from anyone else (and I don’t think I had the problem registering).

    @Erik, newer Safari (mac) automatically disallows 3rd party cookies – but it may be if you normally disallow most cookies it won’t work for windows or non-mac? I collect a big string of bt cookies each time I move around on the new eruptions blog.

    @12: I’ll look into it … I do see the BT related cookies, but they don’t seem any more nefarious than the SB cookies, but I am using the newest version of Safari. Ah, the fun of moving.

    I will miss this very open and easily read blog-site and its community of enthusiasts. Thank you all for having shared so much interesting and knowledgeable information, and thank you, Erik.

    @ Erik Klemetti – you know that caption for that pic of Seulawah Agam in your new site? Well, it should read “Top left: A May 2007 shot of Seulawah Agam on the island of SUMATRA in Indonesia. Photo by Michael Thirnbeck.” Sorry about Sumatra being in caps – had to point out the error. Aceh is a special territory of Indonesia, not a separate island. Seulawah Agam, however, does lie in Aceh.

    Anyhow, I will miss seeing the old site, but look forward to a great future. I love seeing new volcanoes I had never heard of dish up some eruptions!

    “all from the tablets and medicines can only provide you with a temporary boost and in the finish what you get is often a waste of money plus the same measurement penis when you initial began with, i do not think losing your funds on that’s even really worth it seriously.”
