the future of my blog

I have recently been notified that, as of the first of May, Google Blogger will no longer allow users to host their own blog content. This decision, says Google, affects less than one percent of Blogger users. Unfortunately I am one of those few users.

Between now and May I must make a decision on what to do about my blog going forward. I have three options:

  1. Stop blogging entirely

  2. Start using different blog software.

  3. Give up publishing blog posts to my site and let Google keep my content for me.

I'm not sure which path I'll take. At this point I'm leaning toward a combination of the first two: Take a short hiatus, then return later this year using different software. Lately I've forgotten why I started blogging in the first place.

But I'll figure that out later. I have the rest of this month and all of the next to try to finish about a dozen posts I'm working on, to get them posted while I still can.

night skies, a haiku

Rural winter night:
Gleaming of a thousand stars.
City: Maybe ten.
