Announcement: Changes at Patheos

Here at Patheos, we’re undergoing some significant back-end upgrades this weekend. Most importantly for Theoblogy readers is that we are switching to Disqus for all comments. The bad news is that all of your existing comments will temporarily disappear this weekend as they are being migrated from WordPress to Disqus.

The great news is that once this migration is complete, discussion will be much more robust on Theoblogy. Not only will threaded conversations be easier to follow, you can “like” comments, link your comments to Facebook, and other such fun stuff.

If you do not have a previously approved comment, your first comment on Disqus will require approval. But once you pass that low threshold  I think you’ll be thrilled with how commentary runs. Plus, offloading the comments from WordPress to Disqus should result in much faster load time for this blog and for other Patheos blogs as they undergo the migration.

While I’m on it, let me just say how happy I am to be blogging at Patheos. Deb, Leo, Cathie, Hillary, David, Murray, and all the other staff are truly great people who are attentive to their bloggers’ needs. My traffic continues to grow. Indeed, I think I’m a better blogger because I’m here, because I have an editor, and because I’m part of a larger team.

As always, thanks for reading. And thanks for your patience with the migration this weekend.

    O, crap.

    Disqus is one of the few sites I didn’t get the less ambiguous name “Kenton.” Instead, I’m the more easily identifiable “KentonS.” Will some of that snarky edge be missing from my comments? We’ll just have to wait and see.
