In the spirit of "out with the old and in with the new", we're launching our redesigned blog and a new status page today.

As you can see, the blog has been streamlined so that it's easier to read and easier to navigate. Additionally, the appearance has been cleaned up. Simone did an excellent job moving the content over and making it beautiful and I've done my best to give us all pithy bios, so please enjoy. Oh, it's also much faster now, which is always good.

For the status page we've set up a StatusPage.io site at http://dnsimplestatus.com - we will post any information about service disruptions, scheduled outages and any other details about the current service status on that site. You can subscribe to status updates via email, SMS and webhooks. We will do more with the status page over the next few months, including adding details about DNS resolution performance and more.

We will continue posting to Twitter under the @dnsimple Twitter account as well whenever there are planned maintenance windows or other news that is important to you and your DNSimple account.

Thanks again for all of your support as we head into 2014. As always, feel free to email us if you have any questions about DNSimple: support@dnsimple.com.
