Bear With Me

 
I am in the process of changing my blog host and name. I recently changed the name to FirefighterBlog.com as the formal name but in the process left the Blogger domain open to anyone that wanted it.

Thankfully I caught that error and reclaimed the Blogspot domain, restoring the name before it became reincarnated under the direction of someone else.

The blog is #1 on Google for all Firefighter Blogs for what that is worth. This body of work is important to me. The posts are indexed well in Google and that means a lot.

As much as I appreciate Google I am contemplating moving to another platform, one with more professional looking templates with three column options. Oddly after all these years Blogger has not changed the template offerings.

So wherever the blog goes it will bear the name FirefighterBlog.com and the Blogspot domain will stay here with a link to the new site.

As part of the move I will be included in a new fire blogging venture along with some other notable fire bloggers. Firefighter Blog will remain a stand alone site connected to a wider web venture. These changes should take the blog to a new level. I will post details soon.

I want to thank the core group of readers that follow the site. You readers are the reason I blog.

No worries - I know what you mean about Blogger. I use Typepad at the moment but I am looking to move to Wordpress just because it is constantly improving.
 
I enjoy your blog, but am curious how you determined that your "blog is #1 on Google for all Firefighter Blogs". Can you provide a reference? How was this determined?
 
Type in Firefighter Blog here!
