GoutPal’s Gout Community Reborn?

I’ve hit the milestone with my Gout Support Network that I mentioned last month. When I commented on GoutPal’s Gout Network Relaunch, I hoped for the switch to my new gout forums to take place on Monday. I’ve just made it in the same week, so I’m happy.

It will be sad to say goodbye to Gout-Pal.com. I expect the transition to take several months. There is a helluva lot of great gout information in the old gout forum. Rather than lose that knowledge, I will slowly summarize old discussions.

GoutPal.com For You

GoutPal.com Organization 2015

After 10 years of GoutPal.com, it’s time to move from subject oriented organization to visitor oriented organization.

I’m retaining topic tags and I will index these into subject area groups. I think it is important that people can browse gout diet topics, gout treatment topics, etc. But the existing subject categories are not adding much value. I’m going to alter categories to identify different groups of visitors.

After many years of running gout forums in various formats, I’ve relaunched the forums as my Gout Network.

My Gout Network is now a replacement for GoutPal Interactive. As well as gout forums, it forms a hub for many more gout support services

GoutPal – The early years

GoutPal.com Feb 21 2005

I’m Keith Taylor, and I was first diagnosed with gout 20 years ago. I can’t remember the exact date, but it was the summer of 1995. Almost ten years later, 6th February 2005, I registered GoutPal.com

Today, I’ve started to journal the changes. I’ll be looking forward to planned improvements to my GoutPal websites. I’ll be journaling significant changes as they happen. Today, I’m looking back to the early years of GoutPal.
