There have been some changes made to Simon Cann dot com over the past few days.
First, and most obviously, there has been a change to the look and feel of the site. As well as the cleaning up, and some restructuring of the basic content, the web addresses for the documents have also been changed to make them more human-friendly (and an automatic redirection from the old addresses has been put in place).
The less immediately obvious change is the large increase in content. In addition to Simon Cann dot com, I used to run two other separate websites:
- Simon Cann’s news feed.
- Writing Down Words, a series of articles with my personal perspective on writing and publishing.
The content from these two sites has now been integrated into Simon Cann dot com, and the legacy sites are being closed. All links to the old sites are automatically redirected to the appropriate page on this site. Within the integrated site:
- You can now find the news feed here. The RSS feed for the news feed has also moved to: simoncann.com/news-feed/index.xml
You can now find Writing Down Words here. The RSS feed for Writing Down Words has also moved and can now be found at: simoncann.com/writing-down-words/rss.xml
Finally, with this expansion of content, a search function has also been added which should make it easier to find anything that may have got lost in the move.
Since this post was originally published there have been further changes to the site. As well as general cleaning and scrubbing, the main subsequent changes are:
The Writing Down Words posts (and the associated RSS feed) have been retired.
The search function has been removed.
The news feed RSS URL has been updated (the address shown above in the correct address).
This note is retained purely for historical completeness.
