I have a real website now rather than a blog. Though I will keep this one open for a while, I will no longer keep this one up. My new site, "USA Spiders" is not fully completed but getting close. I made sure to get the Michigan page finished first. :o) Please use
USA Spiders in the future and if you find any problems with the site, please let me know so I can fix them.

Spiders verified to be here in Michigan are listed on the left sidebar. On the right sidebar, are the spiders of which pictures have been sent in to me.

Michigan Spiders is Changing to USA Spiders

For a long time I have wanted to do two things. Expand Michigan Spiders into a site that is good for all 50 states, and to build a real website with a .com rather than use this blog.  I am proud to say it is finally happening.

My new website is USA Spiders ( I have put a lot of time into building the new site and it is mostly done, but I am no professional website builder, so if you find any broken links, pages with bad information, or anything at all you do not like about the site, please let me know.  I will consider every item mentioned and make the change if I feel it would be better. If enough people make the same suggestion, I may even go against my own judgement. USA Spiders is meant to help people like you, and I cannot make it the best site I possibly can if nobody lets me know what they do not like about it.

If you have a spider you wish me to identify, please use the new email found in the contact info for the new site. I will still check this email for a while but all emails for USA Spiders will be answered before I check the Michigan Spiders email.  However, in respect to my loyal friends of Michigan Spiders, if you put your city and "Michigan" in the Subject line of the email, I will give that email priority over any others.
I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. I do hope you find USA Spiders up to your standards.  I also hope you will help spread word about the new site.
