It’s been a long time coming, but Google Earth Blog has finally made the jump from Movable Type over to WordPress! With over 3,000 posts (this one is #3005) and more than 17,000 comments, it was quite a migration. In the end, this move should be good for all of us. In particular:
We’ve updated our logo to make it stand out more when you browsing around on line.
Comments will now be posted much more quickly, and replies can be threaded. In addition, you can subscribe to email notifications for follow-up comments on particular posts, making it much easier to keep up with discussions that you’re a part of.
The site is now fully mobile responsive, meaning it should look great on your phone or tablet, as well as your desktop or laptop. The previous site was mobile compatible, but was cumbersome on handheld devices.
Everything should load faster and run more smoothly for you. Of course, we’re still ironing out the kinks after this major transition, so please leave a comment below or contact us if you come across any issues (missing pages, broken links, etc).
