I am happy to announce that gmancasefile.blogspot.com has undergone "URL-reduction (URLRS)" surgery. I had been putting this off for a long time, but I finally decided it needed to be done. Happily, it appears the surgery was a complete success. The URLRS is also known as a "blogspot-ectomy." Before I agreed to the surgery, I was told by the doctors that I will retain full blog function. Right now, I am resting comfortably and recovering with cold Hefeweizen beer and a Dominican cigar. This is, of course, the radical recovery treatment recently postulated in the New England Journal of Medicine.
The symptoms of blogspot dysfunction (BD) were very manageable until the site began to get more than about 20,000 hits, which, though immensely gratifying, began to cause issues with functionality--at all the wrong times if you catch my drift. Of course, it was embarrassing, but I keep telling myself this happens to a lot of normal people.
My new URL is now simply "gmancasefile.com" and it is more than just a blog; it is my website. In the last year, I have been blogging, working cases, appearing on CNN, HLN, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, etc., writing a book, and speaking to groups around the country. People needed to have a way to communicate with me, and to learn a little more about me. This is what the new site will do. One page is the blog. The blogs will not change, and the catalog of past blogs was transplanted during the surgery. Only one or two were rejected by the body, I suspect because they were not my best work, or were simply unnecessary.
Please understand that I am still adjusting to the loss of the blogspot, and a certain clumsiness with regard to a website, which I have never had before the surgery. Please join me there. You can even send me messages and comment on the blogs for a change. I figure that if everybody who regularly reads my blogs tells just one other person, I could have four readers very soon.
All my best and see you at gmancasefile.com
