Big changes coming for this blog: The Argus Leader’s website is undergoing a long-needed overhaul , and that means changes for Political Smokeout.
This blog is moving from Tumblr to the main Argus Leader website. Starting now, you’ll be able to find it at www.argusleader.com/blog/davidmontgomery/. Above you can see an example of what it will look like — at least for now.
The new website means big improvements for regular stories at argusleader.com — bigger pictures, easier navigation, and no more breaking up stories into multiple pages.
It’s more of a mixed bag for the blogs. Tumblr is a rich platform (though I prefer Wordpress), and some features I’ve used — like the category links in the sidebar — are going to be going away.
This is a new web platform, with bugs still to solve, so the new Political Smokeout is going to be a work in progress over the coming months. I welcome your suggestions for changes, though I might or might not be able to implement them.
I’ve uploaded my past month of posts to the new blog, but will be leaving the Tumblr online as a permanent archive. There will, however, be no more posts here once the switch happens — except possibly as a backup during outages of the argusleader.com.
Again, for the new home of Political Smokeout, visit www.argusleader.com/blog/davidmontgomery/.
