I’ve been thinking a lot about this site. It had a definite place and meaning at one time. I think it may be time to officially call the Time of Death on it.
I’ve got my hands in so many web sites at the moment, and I have some really cool things in the works that I want to concentrate some focus.
I’ve tried to figure out what to do with this. I went to the one source who got me interested in blogging and wordprss in the first place. I knew John would have covered this somewhere along the way. A quick Google of “tentblogger how to end a blog” resulted in this post called How to Change Your Blog’s Content Focus. Meh. That might be what I need to do, but I also keep thinking that I need to just kill it. We’re not talking about a shift in focus… although the content that is there is NOT where I am passionate at the moment.
If John were to sit down with me, he’d probably bluntly tell me that I’m not doing the tough (but necessary) work to grow the blog. That is definitely true, but I’m not even sure that I care about growing the blog in the first place. (I’m sure that breaks a LOT of his rules of engagement online) However, I’m just not sure what to do with it at the moment.
Perhaps I need the domain name to create a personal branding page of all the things that I’m working on at the moment. I like the way he has his john.do site. That would create the excuse for me to get one set of moo cards for myself. Maybe.
But then there is the content. I like a lot of the stuff that is here. Content is content. It is an archive of a lot of experiences and thoughts that I want to preserve. John used to have www.human3rror.com and I see that somehow that site forwards to a “upup” directory of his tentblogger site. I wonder how he did that. Of course I can read about his goodbye and change of that domain.
Seriously, my little site here does nothing. But soon, it will be vastly different. If you follow this site, I am sorry that I have not written in a LONG time. I’ve learned a lot in the past few years and intend to reboot the next version soon. Who knows… that may mean the end of some social media identities and some consolidating of others.
It is time.
