The old blog is dead and buried! It crashed and burned!
From the keyboard of Jeff Bennington
We were silent for two days because we didn't know what was happening and patiently awaited answers. But as soon as we knew what needed to be done, we quickly (and I mean very quickly) rebuilt 1 year of work in the 24 hours that followed. Still, there is still plenty of work ahead of us to add the finishing touches. We will work with the authors who lost promotional time (Twitterlicious/Hot New Release/ Freebie Alert, etc from Aug 10-14) and fully take care of them
The Good News
"The good news is, we are a wordpress blog now and we own our domain, which will help us immensely over the long term and we are already seeing a big difference in the way wordpress links our site with social media (likes, etc). We still have hundreds of email subscribers (we are switching them over now), thousands of KBR twitter followers, and our Triberr tribes. It will take some time for the search engines and SEO to kick in, but we are going to pay for serious SEO assistance to get us not only back to where we were, but to put us far ahead of the old blog."
