Site Performance issues
Hi! I know that the site isn't yet back up to its former glory, and for that I apologize. I promise, we are working on several things to try to get us back to where we once were. In the mean time, I'm so glad to see so many people jumping right back into blogging for progress. If you're a long time member of this site, and you had several blogs posted before that you miss, I ask that you try to get your copies and back ups posted. I was able to find some old cached copies of some of my older blogs by doing a search for my user name, then copied and pasted those cached pages back into this site as blogs (making sure to change the date and time so that it matched the original date of posting). I also had several of my blog entries that had been copied over into my Facebook notes via their feed-import feature (which is being cancelled soon, if it hasn't already been). So there are ways to get your old blog entries back. It's a little tedious, I know, but not all is lost. Which leads me to my next little bit here... I am currently in the process of upgrading several features on this site, including new profile pages, search engine guidelines, and mobile connections. Most of these upgrades should not interfere with your work on the site if you are reading or posting... However, there is a chance that some loading times may be a little longer than normal. This is, in fact, one of the other issues that I am going to be working on this week. So, thank you so much for your patience, up to this point with our issues and in advance for the upgrades.
