I’m afraid I haven’t had time to try to work with the Radio Blog files on the Gatsby and Romanticism pages yet, but the Radio Blog on the Hurston page appears to be up and running. Let me know if you have trouble with it.
I’m not sure, but I think the blogs that appeared on this site are gone for good. It makes me very sad, as it represented about two and half years of writing, but I don’t know what to do about it. I’m complained about my host to the Better Business Bureau.
In case you’re wondering, essentially what happened is that my host was bought by another company. My site was taken offline and replaced by a placeholder page. However, the fact that this transition was about to occur was not related to my former host’s customers. In fact, they have always been very bad about communication when they will be making updates that will cause downtime. Anyway, this was one time too many, and I lost confidence in their abiliy, so I switched to Bluehost, and I’m very happy so far.
It is probably going to take a significant amount of time to restore some of this site, but I should explain some of the changes I intend to make.
- My education blog will now appear here, at this URL — http://www.huffenglish.com/. It was formerly at http://www.huffenglish.com/blog/.
- My classroom site will appear at its own own subdomain: http://class.huffenglish.com/. It was formerly at http://www.huffenglish.com/class/. This is not live yet, but I’ll update when it is.
- My personal non-education related sites, including my personal blog, my genealogy blog, and my Harry Potter blog will all appear at their own domain as soon as it’s online. I will unveil that when it’s active.
- The classroom wiki and lesson plan wiki were hosted offsite and are unaffected by my hosting problems.
In case you missed it, I wanted to take this opportunity to announce that my piece “Toward ‘Moral Perfection’: Integrating Judaic Concepts and Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography” will be published in July 2006 in English Journal. This issue’s theme concerns teaching practices in private, parochial, and independent schools. Look for it!
