Goodbye – Blog Retiring

Hi everyone, I haven’t logged in in quite a few months as you may have known … but it looks like I’m going to be retiring from this blog due to the length of time (since 2014) and with the result of only having 95 followers to boot.

It’s a little disappointing but perhaps choosing a blog site is not the right platform when you are offering people free information and trying to accumulate an archive of open source free info for anyone interested in my subject which is mainly Permaculture.

The main realisation is when I browse other bloggers’ sites and compare it with my own procedure/s / post content and methods. … I like to make quite a bit of effort in my posts but the return is quite low and in some cases, not even a single ”like” whilst others can merely write about a small event for something that happened on one day and perhaps post a photo and their return is far – far more successful in terms of viewership and comments etc. This has given me the idea that a large chunk of blog viewers / followers are looking for an online reality style personality or group of persons they can follow similar in idea to reality tv shows.

I used to have blogs on Blogger and they were far more successful but I honestly don’t want to be part of the Internet Monopoly empire known as Google and I have also recently become more dismayed with WordPress as can be seen in an article I wrote in ’18.

As of now, I’m not sure how WordPress works in terms of non-active accounts, I am not going to de-activate my account but I’m guessing at some point they may remove it automatically? Anyway, If I feel like it, I might from time to time post one or two articles a year in order to not waste all the time and effort I made teaching people various Techniques and Methods etc. But this will all depend on how their rules work …. Should you find the blog gone, it was WordPress and not myself.

Thanks to all the 95 followers and others who just used to stumble by once in a while, you are all great cool people and it was fun commenting and chatting online with you.

cheers

    Oh no, don’t compare yourself with others. You’re blogging because you have something to share–you never know who will find your articles and make use of them.
    Happy New Year!

    Well, good luck with whatever you decide to put your efforts into. I’m sad that our blogging lives may only overlap a little, since I’m sure there’s much more I could be learning from you. Make sure you’ve got your information backed up yourself anyhow!
