Administrative Fermentationist Stuff

The last few days I've been putting a bit of work than usual into The Mad Fermentationist, hopefully the wider page layout and additional tabs at the top make for an easier/cleaner reading experience.  I was getting annoyed by how little of the screen was taken up by the posts on my new wide screen monitor at work and how much stuff was starting the stack up in the column on the left.

In a couple days will start redirecting to my new custom web address: (Sadly was already claimed and redirects to South Sound Photo... damn squatters).  The old Blogspot address (as well as the RSS Feed) should continue to work, so no worries if you can't be bothered to update your bookmark when the change goes down. 

To my own shame I joined twitter a couple days ago (@madfermentation).  At this point most of the tweets are automatically generated when a new post is published here or on BrewLocal, but I have also tweeted notes about the progress of the various batches and experiments I have fermenting.

You can also follow The Mad Fermentationist on Facebook using Networked Blogs using this link.

I also still appreciate all the people who follow this blog the "old-fashion" way by subscribing to the RSS feed:

If you like the changes or if there are other changes to the blog that you'd like to see please let me know in a comment or with an email to [email protected].

Really, no facebook?

You mean an actual facebook page for the blog? Is the networked blog thing not "with it" enough?

Welcome to Twitter, Mike. The best time-wasting tool I discovered in a while!

I hope you have RSS on your new site. I don't mind moving my bookmarks, but I can't stand following sites without RSS.

I believe the transition is complete, so hopefully the RSS feed and everything else is still working for you. Pretty seamless I thought?

Longtime lurker/first time commenter here. I have enjoyed the changes to the blog recently, especially teh recipe bit.

Oh...and twitter is a great tool for following brewpubs. Cheers!

Didn't mean to drop the thread, professional obligations, lol.

Facebook - The openID thing works everywhere BUT facebook. I didn't know if that was some choice you made or because it just didn't work on facebook. Sadly I'm railroaded into using it because most of my friends/family do.

Good idea on the bigger/wider site. It does make for better viewing, plus it allows you to put up bigger pictures.

Don't be ashamed about twitter...especially since I'm following you now...Keep up the good work on those brews.
