This blog is 13 months old and it’s pretty obvious we’re having growing pains.
Many of you have e-mailed me regarding your frustrations and I share those frustrations. I’m fairly sure the people at my office are sick of me complaining.
The short version of the story is that I switched platforms in January, going from Blogger.com to a platform set up by The Journal News. The idea was that we would be able to quickly upload audio, which seemed like a good reason to make the switch.
I don’t know much of anything about the technical side but it seems the amount of traffic has overwhelmed our capacity. I’ve been assured that they’re working to fix that.
Blogs are a fairly new feature in the newspaper business. I was the first beat writer in New York (in any sport) to try it and among the first in the country. It seems funny now but it took several months of asking before I was cleared to do this.
Now the biggest problem is handling the traffic.
So, please bear with us. The tech issues will clear up in time and this site will hopefully get even better.
Thanks for your patience. Catch you (hopefully) tomorrow.
