[The following post was the last post published at the original ProfHacker.com - ed.]
As I write this post, the ProfHacker numbers look a little something like this: since we launched on July 26 our authors have written 510 posts, our commenters have left 3,985 comments, and our readers have loaded 308,901 page views. We’re all so very grateful for the interest and enthusiasm with which this project has been greeted, and we’re surprised (in a good way!) with how quickly it’s taken off.
And now for some big news.
You won’t be seeing any new posts for a few days. We’re taking a short break in order to pack up and move our project to its new location. Starting Monday, April 19, ProfHacker will be hosted by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
What does this mean for you, the reader? Well, the subject matter, style, and tone of the site will remain the same: our contract allows us to maintain editorial control. Furthermore, the crackerjack team of ProfHacker authors will remain the same.
The web address will change to something new, but fear not: the old address will continue to work by sending you to the new site. As of Monday if you type
http://www.profhacker.com into your web browser, you’ll automatically be re-directed to our new location. If you click on an old link to one of our posts—like
http://www.profhacker.com/2009/07/26/hello-world/—you’ll automatically be redirected to that post’s new location at the Chronicle web site. So if, for example, you’re a blogger who has written something that links to one of our posts, your link will still work. If you subscribe to our RSS feed, you’ll need to change the address of the feed to which you subscribe, so check back next week for what that new address will be.
I know you’re used to getting your 3-post-a-day fix from us, but just be patient for a bit and please come join us on Monday at the Chronicle!
