As a shameless techno-geek, you had to guess that it wouldnt take too long before Hit By A Train joined the blog (“web log”) revolution. And we have. As of today all new news posts are being made via Blogger.com. So what? you ask, Who needs 15 posts a day on the relative merits of twang versus bang? Well, no one probably. But theres this too: For the first time since Ken Bethea turned over the keys to this website, back in 2000, the Old 97s themselves again have instant and unfiltered access to their own home page.
So you never know, posts from a 97 might pop up here anytime. Unfortunately, blogging technology doesnt yet allow the Tourdates page or the little Whats New pop-up window to be updated too, though in the months ahead, Ill try to come up with some workable formatting to do just that. Still, Ill update the show dates and whats new window each time I personally update the site, and whenever I notice that one of the guys has updated the news page.
But it might be worth it to click on the news link when you visit HBAT, just to see of one of the guys has checked in. Let the blogging begin!
