Dear SailBlog Members,
We wanted to let you know that SailBlogs has been acquired by Social Knowledge. We have enjoyed helping you share your adventures and wish everyone the very best as we sail off in different directions. Know that we are confident that SailBlogs will be in good hands, and are excited for the future of SailBlogs, as we move into new ventures. Look for Andy to post an introduction in the comments below.
The website will be moved to their server over the next couple of weeks. There could be some minor glitches so if you notice anything not working, please check this blog for an announcement about the server move and post issues in the comments.
Thank you for all your support, and it has been a pleasure to be a part of all the great stories that have been shared.

The Following was emailed to me:
My name is Erika and I work in casting and development for a television production company called Cineflix.
I'm researching for a new show about full time cruisers - sort of off the gridders who have given up the rat race for a life at sea. Looking for people who spend most their time on the water, cruising from port to port in search of adventures, work, or the meaning of life.
I was hoping maybe you could put the word out to your community for my call for characters. I'm open to hearing from all seafaring adventurers who love the ocean going lifestyle. I'd certainly appreciate any help you could provide. Please contact me with any comments, questions or concerns. Thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

We've been making some behind-the-scenes updates to the SailBlogs admin system which will hopefully fix a few issues that users have been reporting, especially with Internet Explorer 9.
If you encounter any issues with the admin, please report them with the support form.
Please be aware that support for Internet Explorer 7 will be going away. The site should still function properly for the most part, but we'll not be addressing IE7-specific issues that a browser upgrade would solve. We've been crunching the numbers on what browsers people are using, and it's clear that IE7 users are diminishing while those with newer versions are growing - it's time to switch focus. If you are currently using IE7, it's highly recommended you upgrade your browser: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie
While there are no open issues currently with Safari, Chrome or Firefox, be aware that it would also be a good idea to make sure you are running current versions of these applications as well.
