Today marks the closing of the CanberraCabbie blog. It's not that I've stopped blogging - far from it! No, I've decided to put more effort into my own website, which includes the more recent CanberraCabbie posts. I'll keep this blog as an archive, unless I decide to import all the old posts into Skyring.com.au which, given my time constraints, seems unlikely.

Writing a taxi blog entry and copying it to two other places seems like too much fuss and effort nowadays. As I have to log out of my regular Skyring LJ and log back in as CanberraCabbie to make each post, and then reverse the process to get back to Skyring, I'm going to streamline it all, cutting back to two blog sites.

The bonus with Skyring.com.au is that you also get my travel blog, the "Ask Skyring" column, my taxi and travel photographs, and a whole lot more. I'm intending to expand and add more features.

Another change is that my blog entries will be shorter and more focussed. Instead of writing a long entry covering several days, I'm covering the same material in smaller chunks. Much better to dash off a few paragraphs as soon as possible than to rack the memory for details a few days later. I've been making posts from the cab, including photographs, in this new format, and they can be seen at Skyring.com.au.

My site incorporates RSS feeds, so my regular readers here may subscribe and not miss anything. So I won't say goodbye to my regular readers. I hope I'll see you (and read your always appreciated comments) on my main site.

Thanks for your interest and kind words over the past couple of years, and I look forward to entertaining you in future with more of the same!

How do I subscribe?

Just go to the website, and there will be a "RSS" button on each blog page.

I tried to create syndicated feeds here on LJ for the Taxi and Travel blogs from your website, but for some reason LJ doesn't like the RSS feed URLs. My plan was to create the feeds and list them here so people could subscribe to them, but I'll have to give it another go later, when I have a bit more time to figure out what's wrong.

Ah. If you could let me know how to make it easier, I'd appreciate it. MobileMe and iWeb conspire to do things their way.

I tried validating your RSS URL at http://validator.w3.org/feed/ and it indicates that there seems to be a mis-match in the text encoding between the feed and your database (the feed is reporting UTF-8, but the database is apparently using ASCII). Don't know if that's what's causing the problem trying to import the feed into LJ, but it might be worth a look. The only other possibility I can see from looking at the LJ FAQs is perhaps a version conflict. LJ supports RSS versions 0.9, 0.91 and 1.0 and Atom versions greater than 0.3.

Great move!
Hey, Pete!

Found your site via CabChap-Taxi Cab & Limo Booking. Didn't know you where in there. So, I'll move over to Skyring. See you there!
