The MAC Blog Has Moved to WordPress.com

New Blog Home Page on WordPress.com – https://macmla.com

This summer, the MAC blog became the primary outlet for disseminating information; and the listserv was retired. Unfortunately, issues arose when MAC’s web hosting service determined that messages going out from the blog to subscribers were spam. The blog administrator tried working with the hosting company’s support team to resolve the issue. But they continued to block our posts and finally took down both the blog and main web site on August 18th. The web site was restored after we deleted the WordPress script on the 21st of August.

To resolve the problem, we determined that we needed a new blog host and moved from our hosting company, Verio, to WordPress.com. We are still working out the kinks in the new site that we hope to resolve in the coming days.

We will also switch our domain registration from Verio since the support has been less than stellar.

We sincerely apologize for the rollout of the new blog as we did not communicate this adequately to the membership. Please use https://macmla.com and NOT http://macmla.org/Wordpress/ to post. We will work as quickly as possible to retire the old site.

As some have expressed interest in RSS feeds, we will try to restore this functionality as soon as we can.

Please let me know if you have any question or concerns.
