I’m not sure if I should continue paying for this blog. It costs a couple of hundreds bucks a year to host and I rarely post to it. Mostly what I use it for is the shortcuts I have on the main page and a few times referring a previous post to help me remember certain events. Like when did I get my last cat, when did I get the car before the one I’m driving? It’s useful for me on that level, but not much more than that.
I’ve already paid for another year of hosting, but I’m thinking of not auto renewing it next year and just letting this die off. It would be something else if I actually posted more often and shared things that are actually useful to others. But I’m not posting anything useful. Tips or tricks? There are tons and tons of them out there already. There is no need for me to throw in something on my own unless it could be wrapped up in something unique. I’m not sure I have that in me any more. Perhaps I’ll change my mind, but for now, I’m thinking not.
I started this blog years and years ago – way before word press and blogging was a thing. I tried various ideas to make the blog something useful for myself but others as well. Okay, perhaps not useful, but at least possibly interesting. If you go back and review the years I’ve been posting there are obvious gaps in posts. Sometimes months (as in the recent gap) have gone by and I’ve not bothered to post any thing. I could have. I could have written more on my 4K experience and now that I have updated my main television from a 60 inch LCD to a 55 inch OLED and how much it amazes me to see the difference. I could have written the only reason I did this was due to the fact that I would be able to sell my 60″ and offset the price a bit, but also that it was such a bargain (less than $2k) where others were well into the $3K and $4K ranges. I could mention that my brother in law is not doing so well, that another hurricane threatened my family down in SC and so on. I didn’t, but could have.
I have no motivation to write in my blog at all any more. And it’s not like I’m spending all my time posting on other things like FaceBook or Twitter either. I’m spending less and less time on those platforms. Mostly because I’m tired of seeing the post where God is great or Hillary sucks, or Donal Trump is a great president or illustrations where he is being himself – I have no respect for him either before nor after his taking office. I’ve never been so embarrassed for this country and I’m currently feeling. I can only go on FB once or twice per week (unless something is happening and I’m keeping track of family). Otherwise I’ll go a long time without it and not missing it at all. However, I cannot give up facebook at this time as I have too many reasons to keep my account active. I’m happy for you if you find meaning in your life by believing in a god. I’m happy if you find meaning in your life if you don’t. I’m happy if you support trump and are happy with the results, or if you don’t have you have no reason to believe in this country. I don’t care about those things and I’m going to stop following you.
Is this my last post onto my blog? I don’t know. I don’t think so, but I may start winding it down. I may move it to my own hardware to host it as I’m not getting any traffic beyond the bots that look for items. Perhaps it’s time for a new reboot, time to focus my attention to something else. Time to make what I do count more for me. I’m doing some “soul searching” I guess you can say but not out of depression or anything like that. It’s just time for a change. We’ll just have to see where things go from here.
