We have an important update for our readers this morning! For years, our various blogs (including NFPA Today, Fire Sprinkler Initiative, Safety Source, Fire Break, and Conference & Expo) have been hosted on Typepad, a third-party blogging platform.
And while Typepad is a great blogging platform that has served the need well, we're making a big move! Starting today, May 5th, all of our blogs will be hosted on NFPA Xchange, the online community we launched last June. Xchange provides all of you with user-generated articles, discussions, and forums, along with all of the staff-generated blog posts and updates you are used to seeing here. Moving our blogs to Xchange means that we'll have one central place for you to engage with your peers and NFPA staff.
So what do you need to know about this change?
- All of our historical blog posts from the years have been imported over to Xchange, so no content was lost in the move, and you are able to search for old posts directly on Xchange.
- If you have saved our current blogs as "favorites", be sure to visit our new blogs in Xchange and create a new favorite/bookmark.
- If you subscribe to any of our blogs via RSS feed and get a regular e-mail about content updates – that service will still be available and there is no need for you to do anything!
Thanks for being loyal readers of our blog content, we will see you over in Xchange!
