After more then 10 years of having a blog, creating different reviews and posts and trying to engage the mini community I’m going to let it go. I will be keeping the DNS since we use it for other things, but this blog will cease to be updated, even by proxy (twitter, fb, whatever).
I generally like to go my own way on stuff and not beholden to other folks networks or let them have some dubious control or ownership of my content… but the way the world is today with focus on broadcasting and connection largely through social networks rather then blogs, at least for small communities and families… it’s just not worth the effort to fight the spammers and other such twerps who generally make the intertubes a crast and annoying place to have a conversation on a solo site like this.
Combine that with constant patching and and plugin breakage for wordpress (particularly with gallery2) and the whole thing gets less fun.
So, what will happen. The content has been archived off to some dubious SQL dump, probable never to be seen again, bummer. The Gallery will stay up and will be directly accessible, though probable not updated for the foreseeable future it’s just not a ideal way to archive anymore. Mmm I need to back that up too.
I will be turning off the cross posting from twitter and other sources.
I see the most family/friend engagement through Face book, so if you have been looking for updates with pictures or videos that is where they are (rather then here, there is a ton of stuff there rather then here actually, cause it’s easy to do on the iphone or with aperture). Charise is also on there and wastes even more time there then I do (some dumb scramble-ish game that never ends, I swear the kids could be bleeding out and it would be “just a minute!”)… Anyway….
I’m also on twitter and buzz (griffonwalker and bushibot). Twitter sucks for media stuff though so right now that is going to FB, Some day if Buzz stops sucking for directly using media stuff then I will probable use that instead to feed outward. Right now short bits flow through twitter but they are good about going everywhere (just really limited in what or how much).
So, the point is, no more updates here, updates everywhere else are easy to find. If you are a family member with facebook or twitter intimidation problems let me know and I will help you out .
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
