For me, this is a giant step. Rather than using a hosted site such as Blogger (brought to you by the friendly folks of Google), the new site is my own.
All of which is good news for this kid.
I've already exported the content from here to the new site, and for a short time I will even remember this site as I post. If I remember. Eventually, though, I will phase this site (and probably the one at Hubpages) out.
Anyway, the new site location is http://column.ericpulsifer.com
