Things are going well with my new site. Hundreds of people visit each day and the number of visitors is continually rising. It must mean I'm on to something :). To celebrate this I've moved it to a new domain: www.blendernation.com.
I have thought long about a good name and I settled on this one because it expresses the values of the Blender community that are important to me: we're one large group with one common interest. As in any nation there are all kinds of people here and while most of the time we get along fine, sometimes we don't. The important thing though is that we know where to find each other and that we know what's going on in the group.
I'm hoping that this new site will become a great asset to the Blender community and I'll do what I can to keep it up to date.
As of now I am also opening the door for other people who would like to actively contribute news. If you'd like to help out, please check out the 'submit news' page. (You'll find it in the navigation bar at the top).
