Granola Shotgun has moved to a new host platform. If I did this correctly (BIG if…) it can now be found via SquareSpace. The domain name remains the same. granolashotgun.com. This may take a week or two to fully kick in so hang in there with me. I’d like to think of this move as a clean slate. A fresh start. A new adventure. I hope you’ll join me.

Congratulations. Thank you for continuing your important and insightful work!
I am happy to hear this! Your blog is one of my favorite things on the internet, and if you’ve found a way to keep going in a way that works for you then I am thrilled. Thank you for sharing your thoughts for so long, I have found many gems among them.
Just really happy to hear you will continue. And if you slap up a donate button once a year I will surely donate. Thank you!
Thursday 9/22: still looks like the same old, same old. Hopefully soon…
I’m waiting for the domain name to transfer to the new site. I’m told this takes about 15 days…
yubba dubba dooo! That’s great news!!
Glad to hear you are still there doing your thing. Thank you.
Sorry but if your domain isn’t changing, how do I know if I’m connecting to the site in SquareSpace? I just don’t want to sit here missing your new posts.
It takes up to 15 days for the domain name to transfer. Nothing I can do about it but wait…
I feel obliged to mention that domain name transfers are pretty quick. If you didn’t get a transfer request email, check your spam folder, check that it was unlocked when you made the transfer request, etc.
I’ve had transfers not go through b/c an email notification was never generated, went to an old address, etc.
I just checked with WordPress. They’ve acknowledged the transfer and said it takes five days from their end.
You found a new, happier, trail – that’s terrific! Would’ve missed your wisdom otherwise.
And this time I really will try to lurk less and contribute more.
The new site has been duly bookmarked.
And I’m so glad you decided to carry on.
Thank you for not abandoning us.
19th (Athens, Greece, time) – link from new post still leads to this WP page. Fan of your site, glad it will continue. Keep on keeping on!
That’s great news, Johnny! Looking forward to reading more of your great writing and seeing your excellent photos, for a long time to come.
Swinging along with your words Johnny. Glad you are still in the air I breath.
Squarespace has been my platform of choice for several years now. I think you’ll really like it.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about your words, paraphrasing – when society changes, we just pick new winners and new losers. It seems 2020 will be a clear example of this phenomenon. I don’t speak of COVID in particular, but instead western society’s response to it. A course has been set, and there’s little to change it now. New winners and losers will emerge. Some, like the tech giants, appear to still be in the winners column, for now. But I sense there’s about to be significant change in the next decade to much of the rest. For better and for worse. So it goes…
I hope you’re well…
So glad you found a solution and are continuing your blog. It has been invaluable.
Thank you Johnny from Melbourne Australia. Your unique, sonorous voice reaches far and wide and we are so happy you’re keeping on going.
So pleased to hear this! Thank you for putting in so much effort for your readers. 🙂
Absolutely outstanding! This made my day!
Excellent to see Johnny is going and going and going.
Thank you! It seems like you enjoy writing the blog & I know that I get a lot from it.
Glad your are moving your cheese to a new platform. You have a great perspective and provide commentary on important subjects to which most people seem oblivious. Looking forward to continued reading.
Please send us a link to your new site.
Yep. I second this. Glad to see the blog has found a new home though.
Yea! I SO ENJOY your posts!
I look forward to following along on the new adventure! Glad you found a new home for the GS content.
Will people subscribed to your mailing list continue to get updates or was that tied to the old WordPress site?
YES! Thank you, Johnny!! This made my weekend.
Hey, long time reader here. Glad you found a solution to your tech problems, and will keep the blog going.
I build WordPress sites for a living, so I can appreciate the frustration. It’s a very useful platform… but like anything in life, it has its idiosyncrasies and limitations. And as another commenter pointed out, image optimization and site performance can be a world unto itself.
Hopefully Squarespace works out better for you!
Hola, gracias por mantenernos al tanto, buen comienzo y éxitos, esperamos ansiosos
YASSS!!!! Ok, I hate when people write that, but I’m genuinely excited that you found a workaround. I feel much better now. ☺️
Thank you for continuing the site. I enjoy your insight, observations, comments.
Didn’t work yet, I’ll check back again soon.
