Ode to WordPress

As YMCA Youth & Government heads into an exciting new era, with new programs and new ideas, our online media presence is also changing and growing.

It is a thrilling time for all areas of Y&G, but it does mean that the time has come to bid farewell to our beloved blog…

The YMCA has recently unveiled an updated and new website. As part of this, Y&G now has our very News section!

The Youth & Government blog has moved:

So fear not, all your regular blog posts will continue to appear throughout this year and well into the future. They will now take the form of News Items on our official Youth & Government website.

This blog will remain here as a repository of all our 2011 to 2013 articles. But from now on, all new posts will move to the new location on the Y website.

That means this is our last post on this WordPress. Given that this is a momentous occasion, we thought it warranted a special send off. Therefore, as we say farewell, we present to you the statistics of three years of blogging, in celebrations of the good times we had.

Number of hits: More than 6000
Busiest month: September 2013 with 1046 hits
Most viewed post: Getting ready for Ressi; the Do’s and Don’ts, posted June 23rd, 2013

As you can see, it’s been a prolific and successful few years.

It’s now time for one final thank you to everyone who has contributed to this blog over the years and made it the success it has been.

So, farewell to ymcayouthandgovernment.wordpress.com Thank you for the memories!

And hello to http://www.ymcansw.org.au/centres/youth-government/news! Make sure you head over to our new website and check it out! We look forward to long future of posts!
