State of the blog: New Site, New Stuff

You may (or may not) have wondered what's been going on with DesignBoston. Well, I'm here to answer that.

Over the last few months, I've been rather busy: working 60+ hours at two jobs, all while working on a brand new DesignBoston, and organizing a social media fund raiser. I bought a fancy new URL (reset your RSS readers!), moved from Blogger to WordPress for my blogging platform, and bought my own hosting space.

I also brought along Joyce Cadena-Hannon, a local photographer and graphic designer (and one of my oldest friends), to help Christopher and myself bring in more content. While DesignBoston was my brainchild, I love that Christopher and Joyce introduce subjects and ideas I hadn't thought of.

So far, so good, but I'm not done yet.

Over the next several months, I plan on introducing new discussion topics, and new items that aren't quite blogging but are well suited for DesignBoston.

All the while, I want to hear from you. Do you like the new site? Do you think we should do something a little (or a lot) different? Do you want to contribute in some way? I'm open to suggestions of all types, so please, let me know - email me at gradon at designboston dot org!
