VFCS getting ready to make changes

We're getting ready to switch over to a new platform for blogs here at the News-Democrat, so View from the Cheap Seats will soon have a new look.

I'm told that the web address won't change so, hopefully, everyone won't have to change their links. But the bright side is that for the first time in two years, this blog will be web searchable, hopefully bringing in a lot more people to the party.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the people who read VFCS on a regular basis -- and those who comment, too.

If you read many sports blogs or chat boards, you probably know the comments are rarely civil or positive. Typically, it seems like one person makes a comment or suggestion, and then 20 people take time out of their day to personally attack the post... I have been thrilled over the last four years of writing this blog to find that the vast majority of commenters keep things on the up and up, even when they disagree with me or with each other.

So, while it shouldn't require much -- if any -- change on the part of readers to switch from one platform to the new one, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about what's going on -- and to take this opportunity to thank you for your support.

I tip my cap to you.
