Pardon Our Dust

December 17, 2010 - You might have had a hard time finding us at our new URL "www.chicagonewsbench.com" since Noon today. Well, sorry, but there's a reason and - fortunately - it's a temporary problem. I recently switched to that URL via Blogger and GoDaddy. Neither of them is to blame. In fact, both did exactly what I commanded them to do, and therein lies the problem. I chose to forward our Blogger URL, "http://rogersparkbench.blogspot.com" to "www.chicagonewsbench.com" with the masking option. That was a mistake. I should have chosen forwarding without masking. Confused? So was I, but I "corrected" it today. Trouble is, the Internet will take 24 to 48 hours to catch up with the change. Really. However, once the change has been sniffed by the search engines out there, a search for or click on "chicagonewsbench.com" will lead you to this blog. Still confused?
