Bye Bye Blog
A good friend of mine once told me, that some people, when it comes to actioning, are ‘Bakers’ – people who need to simmer on an idea, or an action, before progressing with it, even if the end result is very clear from the very start.
I have been running this blog for more than a year and a half, and a few months ago I decided to say goodbye to the wordpress hosting services and move to my own domain, 2 actually: sleeplessinsocialmedia – focusing on social media, web 2.0 and communities; and thesleeplesslife, which is more of a personal blog.
The task of writing down a ‘goodbye’ post was on my to do list for a long time. The end result was really known in advance – close the blog. But for some reason I couldnt ‘find the time’ or ‘bring myself’ to do it. I have drafted a post and re-written it for 5 times. But I could not push the ‘publish’ button on it.
See, although the end result was there: just say goodbye already. But ‘the perfect post’ (for me) wasn’t. Took me 4 months to ‘bake’ this Goodbye and formally move on.
In an uber-sentimental way, this is me letting go of the ‘wordpress-hand-holding’ I had for a while. The WordPress platform has been a kind and comfortable and safe environment to manage my blog on, and moving to my own domain, where I can run applications and plugins, have much more freedom with layout of site, etc. is a proof of just how great WordPress is as software: it allows the right level of freedom and support one needs.
I would be extremely happy to see you in my new blogs. Yep, you’ll have to resubscribe to the RSS there due to a technical fault on merging this RSS to the new one – I apologies and thank you for your effort doing it.
