Day 21: Internet Address Change

Internet Address Change – February 01, 2011

Day 21 - Internet Address Change

General Sarge Has His Own Domain Now!

Okay, apparently General Sarge heard me talking about the fact he now has his own domain name on the Internet and that I had to notify people about the move. When I arrived home today he was back in his camo-work clothes with the computer packed up!

It did take me a while to explain to him that we weren’t actually moving.

Just his Internet address is different.

This is Big News – And Might Need
Some Blog Reader Adjustment

My wife and I have been both humbled, honored and amazed at how what started out as a way for me to deal with the fact that our youngest is away at Basic Training, has turned into a big thing on the Internet. The kind emails, comments, support and anticipation of daily General Sarge pictures from you, the readers of this journey, are all amazing.

As a result it became obvious early on I needed to set up a blog to chronicle the journeys of General Sarge instead of just posting them on my Flickr site. Then as it grew more, it became obvious it was time to set up a domain for General Sarge to. So, we have now worked out the kinks and the change is official…

General Sarge has his own dot com name!

Also – and this was the most challenging for me to figure out – for those of you who subscribe to these daily posts in either a news reader of some sort on your computer, or via an email subscription, you will need to re-subscribe. I made the needed changes to the Feedburner application and it is now ready for use.

This is important…if you don’t understand this next part don’t worry about it as it means you probably weren’t using a reader and an email subscription on the other site in the first place.

For those of you who were subscribing to the General Sarge posts via email or Feedburner, please re-subscribe. The Feedburner and email subscription information is in the top right hand column position of the website. Simply re-subscribe using the Feedburner Reader button, or re-subscribe using the email button option. We are currently running the old site as a mirror site. So right now anything posted to the new domain does get posted to the old site too. However, as I see the reader count go back up in the new Feedburner statistics, we will be taking down the other site which means that feed will no longer work.

If you are reading this post in a news reader or via email please go to the website now by clicking the link below and make the required changes so you don’t miss any posts…

Once on the site re-subscribe in either your news reader or email. Of course for those of you reading this blog on the Internet, please take note you too can subscribe either via a news reader or email. That way you won’t have to worry about missing any of the daily pictures as they will automatically come to you.

Thanks again for your support of this project and support of our two sons in the Army. Thanks also for understanding that as the popularity of General Sarge has grown, this is a good thing that he now has his own domain and we needed to make the subscription adjustments.

Oh, and I almost forgot! General Sarge now has a Facebook Fan Page too! To become a fan of General Sarge on Facebook click the link below…
