Here’s a brief update on the move, announced last week.
Things are progressing, and most of my old material has been transferred to the new blog, which is located at respectfulinsolence.com. Of course, there are still some things to tweak and fix, which is why, given how insanely busy this week is going to be, given my impending trip to CSICon on Thursday afternoon, I’ve decided to hold off on writing new material for the new blog until sometime next week, probably November 1 or 2. I’m just gratified that there are so many of you who are still checking back and commenting. Please be patient.
This will officially mark the longest period of time in nearly 13 years that I haven’t produced new material for Respectful Insolence. It feels a bit weird, and I must admit that there are things happening that make my keyboard fingers itch to comment on. I have thus far resisted. On the other hand, I should’ve taken a break more often before.
In any case, given that my traffic and Google juice are going to tank big time for a long time anyway, I might as well take my time and make sure everything’s in good shape before opening the floodgates on the new blog. Also, before Friday I need to radically retool my integrative medicine talk for CSICon, both to fit it into a much shorter time period and to make it (hopefully) still interesting and worthwhile for anyone who was at QEDCon and saw my talk there. Oh, and let’s not forget my real job, where I have to finish a final report on a grant that’s due October 29. Damn real life interfering!
Yes, holding off until November 1 or 2 to begin Respectful Insolence, Mark III, seems a very good idea. Hang in there. It’ll be just as good, if not better, than the current incarnation. Over time, I might even transfer material from Respectful Insolence, Mark I (my old Blogspot blog, which now exists only as an archive for the first 14 months or so of my blogging) over to the shiny new blog, so that all of Orac’s Insolence can be found in one place. First things, first, though.
