Going for the Green's new website

As I've been warning, G4G is moving away from the blogger platform, though the G4G archieves will continue to reside here for the time being. I'm moving to, so for those that have me linked, I'd appreciate an update. Going ahead, I'm not likely to be placing any new work on this site, and have already been cross posting on the new site for a few weeks.

Update: The Going for the Green blog is now located at

The move is designed to increase traffic to G4G and to bring new content to Any suggestions or comments on the move, the new format or any content you'd like to see covered are appreciated.

I'd like to thank all of my loyal readers for stopping by over the past two years and look forward to hearing back from you regularly on the new site.

Here's the press release about the move:
