My blog started out on Yahoo in 2003 when Mavis and I left on our Great Loop Cruise. It moved to WordPress around 2008 but was always a separate website from wwww.greatloopcruising.com. Search Engine experts said it was a bad idea to have two separate websites. I also needed a website with modern content management and an expanded ecommerce capability.
Starting today we have a single integrated site at http://www.greatloopcruising.com. While the WordPress site will remain for an indeterminate time, all new posts will be made on the new website. All existing posts with photos have been transferred to the new site. This was quite a technical achievement and after a false start trying to do everything on WordPress, development of this site was switched to ICG Links Build111 platform with the work done by their very capable team.
In spite of moving the site in March, WordPress reports the site was visited 17,000 times as of December 31, 2013.
