Belated Blogaversary

I can tell I’m really busy. On June 11 I missed observing the occurrence of my third blogaversary. (I was a little prompter about it on Blogaversary 1 and 2.)

It’s been an interesting year. I started to get serious about photography, discovered Kinja, started blogging about work, and bored all of you stiff with dog and house stuff. Oh yeah, and the redesign. And BloggerCon. —Heh. I was just getting ready to lament that I hadn’t done so much technology blogging this year, but I really don’t know that I missed it too much.

Flameage and portable PageRank

I had an interesting conversation with Dave in the comments of last night’s post. His perspective is that, while notifying customers is a good thing, there are always some people who are going to flame no matter how much notification you give—because they’re just angry. He’s probably right.

In related news, it’s fascinating watching the level of detail in which Dave and Rogers are taking care of the relocated sites. Today’s example? PageRank. Yep, turns out if you serve up the right kind of redirect (HTTP 301), not only does Google switch and start spidering the new location, but it apparently also transfers the PageRank of the old site to the new one. Wish I had been able to do something about that when I moved to this location, though it only took about a month to build back my PageRank after the move.
