Sticky post: The Editblog is moving to PVC

It is with great pleasure that I can announce the Editblog is going to be moving over the ProVideo Coalition! (I just discovered the sticky feature in WordPress so I’ve moved this to the top of the front page so new visitors to the Editblog can easily get to the Editblog on PVC.)

I started the Editblog way back in 2005 (with a post about Martha Stewart’s Apprentice of all things), first on Blogger and then using WordPress on my own server. I never really wanted to administer my own deployment of WordPress but overall it has worked pretty well with only the occasional glitch (mainly because of my hosting company) that kept me up late into the night trying to figure out what was wrong. Needless to say I’ll be happy to have someone else worry about servers and databases and updating and all that kind of stuff.

I’m sure there will still be posts on this the old Editblog url from time to time to time so if you have it in your reader then please keep subscribed but also please subscribe to the NEW RSS FEED for my new channel on PVC. And I’m still writing over at the Studio Daily blog as well.

If you don’t know about or use RSS then this new Editblog on PVC feed is the perfect opportunity to start using it. What is RSS? Here’s an explanation in plain English:

You have to have an RSS reader to read your subscriptions. Web browers like Safari and Flock have them built in our you can use a dedicated reader like NetNewsWire or NewsFire on the Mac or FeedDemon on the PC. If you read on multiple computers or want a web based app then Google Reader is a favorite as well. If you have an iPhone then the RSS reader you can’t live without is Byline.

I’ve had a couple of comments from friends while discussing the move that the PVC homepage is a bit confusing. I’ve felt the same thing before but with the home page being a central hub for all the different channels it’s just that there is a lot of stuff there, ads included. PVC is basically a lot of blogs that are called channels. The channels are all listed down the left side of the page (under Channels) with a link to the channel’s homepage, links to recent articles and the RSS feed, so each channel has its own individual page and RSS feed as well as RSS feeds for news and all articles posted on the page as a whole. Put all that together on the front page with ads and featured articles and it’s a lot of content! Here’s a brief overview of the PVC homepage:

So that’s ProVideo Coalition in a nutshell. I do hope you will begin to follow the Editblog on PVC!
