I decided that since I rarely update my running blog anymore, that it would make sense to roll all that content into this blog. Thanks to the WordPress import/export feature, I was able to easily combine the two sites into one.
Posts that aren’t running related (like pics and short posts) will be in the Notes category. All the former runnerjames.com posts are now in the Runner James parent category with the old subcategories underneath.
I’m using Cloudflare’s super cool Page Rules to serve up 301 Permanent Redirects from old runnerjames.com URLs to the new jameskoole.blog URLs. For example, this post on the old blog – https://runnerjames.com/2016/01/03/getting-the-most-out-of-strava/ automatically redirects to it’s new home here and the redirect alerts the search engines that the URL is moved so they will update those links over time to point to the new URL.
I’ve also updated the theme to handle full posts a bit better. And I added an Instagram widget to the sidebar since I’m using that service a little bit more these days despite the Facebook connection. Request a follow there if you want.
