Today, we're very excited to announce another great enhancement on the Phish.net site. Recently, as some of you net-savvy folks may be aware, we've had several outages with our blog. Our blog
is was hosted over at Tumblr, a startup microblogging service. We've enjoyed partnering with Tumblr, they have an awesome and simple interface and a lot of great ideas, but a combination of factors including flaky reliability and lack of integration ultimately led to the decision to bring our blog in house. So, today, we're unveiling our new blog.
You will now be able to comment on our blog entries using your Phish.net account. Your profile will track your blog comments just like your other comments on the site. And, perhaps most importantly, the experience will be consistent throughout phish.net.
For a limited time, the blog archive will be available at phishnet.tumblr.com. Our goal is to import those entries into our blog here and eventually, phase out the old archive.
Don't worry, none of your favorite features are going away! We'll still post images, videos, and our weekly Mystery Jam, as well as feature articles by the Phish.net staff.
If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Phish.net. Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
