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 -

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!

If you haven't noticed, I like to use pictures of volcanoes on this here blog. Sometimes I use pictures I've taken, but I know that many of you have pictures that would put mine to shame. So, I'd like to ask you, Eruptions readers, if you would send me pictures of volcanoes - erupting or not - that…
Fernandina in the Galapagos erupting in April 2009. Photo by Harald Schmidt First off, I wanted to thank everyone who has submitted volcanoes images so far. They are an remarkable collection (see examples above and below) that I will start using with the articles as they fit. Thank you for sharing…
A brief, non-volcano-related note, but sometime between 12:30 and 1 PM EDT today, Eruptions will pass 1,000,000 page views since joining ScienceBlogs in March of 2009. I wanted to thank everyone who has made the blog such a fun thing to do and who pick up on reporting the events when I'm swamped.…
If you haven't heard, ScienceBlogs HQ has put its foot squarely in its jaw thanks to a little poor decision-making. Now, Eruptions is a little outside the mainstream of ScienceBlogs - there aren't many corporations that might influence my posting (unless you suddenly see "Eruptions - brought to you…

Thank you for your time here, and seeing you on the new space tomorrow then!

Carl! I meant moving TODAY (September 1) - I've fixed the post ... but I had initially meant to post this yesterday and forgot to change it. Head on over today!

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?

sad thing :/
no comments without to register.

Bye Bye comments :/

@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.

This was kind of expected...

Bye bye scienceblogs.

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.

Ahhh... the beauty of linefeeds.

Very nice....

hi all well a new site i just join looks very good

@ Erik Klemetti just wondering with your consent if i can download your pictures/photos along with your picture of you as a front cover of these photos of volcanoes from this to put into my photo album along with title name under 'Eruption'with Eruptions web site address at the bottom of the photo's in my climate/weather facebook for others to see only started building this profile facebook up last week due the Atlantic hurricanes which gave the idea of doing this i have three other links with my site who like the idea which are Storm pulse.com The northeast Quadrant,and Devin Mathew Toporek-The weather vein i be taking no credit for these as they are name by the owner with their website address underneath each photo or picture so if someone has a look and think that a good photo and want more info they can click the website and it would take then to photo's website

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!
