Why I’m Not Deleting This Blog Just Yet

March 25, 2007 at 5:10 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

One of the results of avidly testing out various blogging platforms over the past few years is that I have various blogs, like this, sitting virtually or completely unattended. Which is not a great look.  I’m in the process of rationalising my array of websites and blogs. When I looked this site today and realised I’ve hardly used it, my first instinct was to delete it. How to do that was not immediately obvious, so I did a search. The following faq extract with its very clear warning from the WordPress people gave me pause:

I deleted my blog but now I’d like it back

You cannot. When you delete a blog there are clear warnings about the consequences of doing so. It cannot be brought back nor can the blog domain be used again.

Although I can’t see an immediate need for the domain, it does incorporate my name. So rather than jettison it and be frustrated if at some time in the future I want to use it after all, I’ll leave the blog here and think about ways in which I might use it.

More Than A Year On

Interesting for me to see I’ve done nothing with this blog for over a year now. It’s immediate use is probably as a testbed or demo site. For example, today I intend to use it to show how to claim a blog with Technorati.

Naming This Blog

The current name of this blog, Des’s Blog, is simply what has been provided by WordPress.com.

My guess is I’ll change it, but first I’ll do some thinking on just what the blog is going to be about.

I already have a wordpress.org based deswalsh.com blog, so don’t want to confuse the issue.
