Final messages

Will be posting the last few messages soon, everything needs a proper ending.

Apologies for the hideous design by the way, the personalised script dissappeared overnight, hence hyperlinks are not underlined.
The images are gone because of the ISP concerned decided to change its URL ... also overnight.

" .. my only friend, the end ... can you picture .." ;))) Yes, I think so Michael, for now that is ... hum, as if this blog was that active these last several months.

It just needs a proper ending, something to the style of "Shop closed - come again!" :)).

Seriously, look around: stylesheets gone (I worked a week on those), pictures gone .. those would take me a week to repair, If I could be bothered.

Will .. write .. .. last .. post .. though .. . ;))

I needed and took some time off from the web, but I'm not yet ready to start something else, be it a blog, a website or whatever.

Thanks again for the note Michael.

Michael, before I forget, you may have noticed the Bloglines blogroll on the right (which used to be the left, duh) is almost continuously changing these last; it will almost certainly be used for eventual projects in the future.

If you're not yet in there, leave your coordinates if you will.

Sorry to see you go. Be well.

@Jonathan: for the time being, I'm a "goner", yes.

Still following your feeds though; keep 'm coming!! Again, I needed some time off from the web --Cold Turkey-effect probably-- but your site is definitely among those I refuse to miss!

that's a pity, but good luck. Well, you should do what you have to do. Do you know that your blog was the very first blog I learned to know?

You know what the main problem of blogging is? There's no incentives, no financial rewards. At some point you start to ask yourself: why am I doing this? For now, I'm still enjoying it, but I guess that could change too. Anyway, this was a great place. Good luck. As you can see, I blog over at http://downeastblog.blogspot.com.

The main problem was *not yet* financial; I can imagine other people --with more than 30 hits per day-- having trouble to pay up for bandwidth and the likes once they find a growing amount of readers.

Finding interesting base material to grow posts out of wasn't the problem either, it's the time and the effort you have to put in that does it for me, especially because of not working in my mother tongue.

Another choice I made was to be careful what to write; think in terms of "fact-checking".

Neither of those two would I do any other way though, they were choices I made and I will most definitely stick to them(*).

(*): apologies for the Yoda-grammar? :))).
