10 Years On

Talk about neglect!

It’s hard for me to believe but it looks as if I haven’t posted here for about 10 years.

Even then, that previous post was about nothing much more than that I wasn’t closing this site at that point, mainly because I would not be able at any future date to reinstall it with the same domain name.

I’m wondering if I’ll ever have another use for it, but in the meantime it’s doing no harm to leave it here.

Why I’m Not Deleting This Blog Just Yet

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.
