As of August 18, 2014, will be shut down. All blogs and sites remaining on this service will no longer be available for viewing, editing, or commenting. Please use Sites at Penn State, the official replacement. Read the full announcement for more detail.

Gearing up for Fall

The Blogs At Penn State is getting ready for a new semester. Over the next two days the team will be upgrading the servers to allow for more capacity and roll out some new features. Blogs will be down for some time during the regularly scheduled maintenance window (5am to 7am) on both Tuesday, August 17th, and Wednesday, August 18th.

One new feature coming on Wednesday is the ability to opt to receive emails when someone leaves a comment on a particular blog post. Now when you leave a comment on someone's blog it will be easy to know if someone ever follows up on your comment. Click on the "Subscribe" link below the Comment area to receive an email when someone responds to your comment.

I am hoping that this feature will make it easier for people to talk to each other and create an ongoing public dialogue from which others can benefit.
