The end of an era

I finally had the guts to post the message that I have been meaning to post for quite some time…, a fundamental chapter in my so-called “online life”, is at the end of the line. The domain name registration is up on the 15th; however, for the purpose of having the time to transition links, I will renew the domain for one more year while I sort through the content. I wrote up a quick summary of my feelings here, too.

12 years is a very long time, but I think this was the right call to allow me to focus on developing this blog as well as my personal resume/portfolio website. I briefly considered scrapping both domains and focusing just on the new one, but that would be way too heartbreaking at this junction. So got the short end of the stick, primarily due to the lack of interest over the past several years on my part.

I can’t stress this enough, though, that the demise of is not the beginning of the end for everything, as far as my “online life” is concerned. It is the end of the domain name — and, yes, with that, a lot of memories. This domain is active, though, and I purchased two other domains a few months ago that will be active until 2017 and therefore need a hosting account of some kind… so it is not the end.

Overall, I recognize, as a marketing person, the importance of online presences to build credibility — a personal brand. I also recognize, as a human, the importance of personal history and creative outlets, which is why that this might always be an underlying interest/hobby of mine, no matter what the form or domain name. With that said, there are good things to come. I just need to find the time to make them happen, and I can assure that it will be a slow process. It’s just time to evolve.
