New Burnside on Monday

This may very well be the final post on the Burnside Blog.

On Monday, barring any unforeseen disasters, and requiring a load of work this weekend, we will launch our new site. We've been working on it for a while, and we're thrilled to finally show you what we have. We've also changed our URL. The new site will be at burnsidewriters.com.

The blog will still be up, but posts won't go here. Our old site will link directly to our new one. The blog and main site will be integrated. Some of the posts you've seen here will become articles. For shorter pieces, our site will offer an Asides department, for quick links, posts, and videos.

I get a lot of the glory around here for making this thing happen, but the truth is John Pattison did a thousand times more work than I did bringing this all together. I also want to thank John Whitaker for helping build our site, Metaleap Design for our logo, and a whole host of others who consulted and helped us out along the way (in particular, John's.

More thanks to those who donated to Burnside. Your incentives for giving will be sent out as soon as we get copies of Million Miles.

We're still working out bugs, but the submissions process will be greatly streamlined. Upon launch, we'll be welcoming open submissions, and we'll be much better in fielding them and responding.

Thank you for visiting so far. Spread the word about our new site!


  1. Yay! I can't wait to submit something!

  2. I get updated by Google reader whenever a new blog is posted here. I hope it's possible to do it when your new site goes live.

  3. Just in case this is the last time I get to do this:

    Emily, I disagree.


  4. whew, i got those last few pics done just in time!

  5. It looks really nice on the other side. You'll love it.

    And yes, James, you'll have all the tools you need to be disagreeable over there. :)

  6. YES! a new format for James and I to fight in! :)

  7. I don't see the new site. When does it go up?

  8. I should clarify. It currently asks for a Wordpress login/pw combo.
