I’m not renewing my domain name; it’s just not been worth the expense over the last couple of years. So on 19 April, this site will be available at: https://simplifyaddlightness.wordpress.com
I hope everyone’s had a great Christmas. We were in central Kansas visiting family, and I basically unplugged from almost everything while we were gone.
I have a few photos I took while in Kansas that I’ll be sharing in the near future. It’s becoming difficult to find hosting for photos. Microsoft dropped my OneDrive storage from 10Tb to 1Tb, so I started hosting my blog photos over on Flickr. Now they’re changing their tune from “Unlimited” to “1000”. It’s frustrating. That, coupled with my desire to unplug more from the tech-driven life, has got me thinking I may just download my images of Flickr and OneDrive, write them to DVDs, and store them that way. And I may try to archive old posts on this blog… assuming that’s still an option. WordPress as a platform has also become utterly hopeless and frustrating to use.
This year brought an end to a several-year streak of daily posting as I got tired of trying to juggle photos. The awesome bloggers I’ve built relationships with over the last few years while I’ve been doing this is the biggest reason I haven’t just shuttered this site. I’m more and more against social media the more I read and hear about how one-sided most of it is politically. But while I support Gab.com and other social media platforms that are fighting the Silicon Valley Censorship Machine, I’m not willing to give anyone else access to that sort of data either.
I’m not sure what 2019 will hold for this space. I have been posting run write ups over on my running blog: Fat Guy Running I have a half marathon I’ll be training for this year, so you can follow along as I work on that.
Happy new year, everyone.
