An Update to E’s Blog

Since The E Club’s creation back in 2009, E’s Blog has always been the source for updates around The E Club. The E Club World was also created in 2010 to provide updates from across The E Club Family as well as more miscellaneous topics. But when The E Club left Moogo in September 2010, a problem began to coalesce: The E Club 2.0’s host, WebStarts, couldn’t match the Moogo site’s blog capabilities, so the E’s Blog posts from the original Moogo site had to be moved to a static page separate from the new blog. Eventually, this became More Blog.

When The E Club 3.0 was created, I also had to integrate the posts from The E Club 2.0 into More Blog. Because that one page is six years’ worth of posts, some accompanied by images and YouTube videos, More Blog is by far the most sluggish and inefficient page on The E Club 3.0; while other pages take around 1-3 seconds to load, More Blog tops 10 seconds, so content further down the page cannot be accessed right away while the page continues to load.

Luckily, E’s Blog on The E Club 3.0 has the solution – it runs on WordPress, one of the most sophisticated blogging platforms on the web, so the old posts could be imported and dated back to when they were originally posted. And E’s Blog supports pagination, so almost eight years’ worth of posts will not all be on the same page. Today, I’m proud to announce the successful implementation of these solutions – all past E’s Blog posts from the Moogo and WebStarts sites have been transferred here under the Archives category. So posts load faster, each post has its own page (with comments and tags), and E’s Blog is unified for the first time since 2010 (More Blog will be gradually phased out over the next few days).

Enjoy the new and improved E’s Blog!
