Mo’ Traffic, Mo’ Problems

The good news is that we’ve built a robust community here at Bike Hugger. Good traffic, conversations, and a steady publishing pace are all thanks to our readers and hard work. With that traffic has come problems for us on the server and our applications. That’s the bad news. You’ve probably noticed the periodic outages and the hang time when saving a comment. We’re working on the issues right now and appreciate your patience.

To further address the problems, besides immediate fixes, we’re working on a design refresh and moving to a new host. Except for our gear, partners, and promotions, our updated design is ad free. We’re doing that to focus on our brand of bike blogging and make a better community for you.


You might think about using Disqus for comments. I’ve heard some good things about them.

Good tip, but we’ve reached our limit of the amount of content we want someone else to monetize or own. Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr are our channels. We’ve got a good handle on what’s going on, just need to get the fixes in.
