[Note: This post originally had some information about how I thought subscribers would be affected by a move that I’ve since learned may not be true. I’ve amended it accordingly.]
As you can see, I’ve changed my header from “Southern Gospel Yankee” to “Yankee Gospel Girl.” Functionally, this is a very minor change which shouldn’t affect your experience of the site at all, except that it has a shiny new header now. However, a change of address is a bigger deal, so I haven’t done that yet. In combination with my purchase of a site redirect from WordPress, this will redirect traffic from southerngospelyankee.wordpress.com to yankeegospelgirl.wordpress.com. One possible change is that subscribers from the old address will have to be moved to the new one (though a, I’m actually not sure about that, and b, even if this is the case, the process can be automated by the WordPress team so you don’t all have to re-subscribe individually). So, I’m not in a great hurry to do that. For one thing, I’m excited to share my latest research project with all y’all soon, and it’s a real gem that I don’t want anyone to miss in the confusion—maybe my best work since the Steve McQueen piece. So, I’ll be sure to give you all advance notice if and when an address change is pending. Meanwhile, lest anyone be confused, southerngospelyankee.wordpress.com is still the right place to come.
