You’ve probably seen the extensive coverage of this on CNN, but in case you haven’t, here goes:
Much like George and Weezy, we’re moving on up.
Starting on Monday, June 22, you will have to travel to a new site, one with the oh-so-original URL of www.ArkansasExpats.com, to find our geeky, strangely-Dwight-Stewart-obsessed brand of Hog talk. The new site will be part of the Sports Blog Nation network of blogs.
We’re very excited about the move: The SB Nation lineup is chock full of outstanding sites—check out A Sea of Blue or Rocky Top Talk, to name just two—and the network provides its bloggers with tremendous resources and support, so we feel that the pieces are in place to really improve the content that we bring to you.
Furthermore, the site will provide a more interactive experience for you, the reader.
Check out the two sites linked to above, and you will notice that, through the Fanpost and Fanshot features, you will have the chance to write your own posts and upload pictures, videos, etc.
Although the new site will include a lot of positive changes, one minor inconvenience is that you have to create an account at www.sbnation.com (or on www.ArkansasExpats.com once the site is live) before you can leave a comment. However, it’s free and only takes a few seconds, so please don’t let that stand in your way.
We really hope that you will take this extra step and continue to be a part of our site. Your insights, humor, and other observations are easily our favorite part about working on the blog (well, other than the Beatle-like fame and riches), and we’re extremely proud of the little community of die-hard Hog fans that has developed around it.
The next several months should be interesting ones for the Razorbacks, and we’ll want to hear what you have to say!
Well, we guess that’s about it for now. If you’ll excuse us, we have to do an interview for a Newsweek cover story and then contact the movers, pack things up, get the utilities set up in the new offices, etc. Busy day. Talk to you soon…
