The Eternal Brokeness of Blogography

Posted on Friday, October 1st, 2021

Dave!Maybe the internet is trying to tell me something.

Maybe it's time to just let go.

My blog has been mostly-broken for months now. Strange things happen where posts don't get posted or are lost completely. But sometimes they post just fine. And I never know which of the three it's going to be. If the post gets posted... but then doesn't show up and is lost... there's nothing I can do. It's just gone gone gone. It's so commonplace to me now that I automatically copy the post before posting so I don't have to start over from scratch if it's lost. It's maddening.

And has me wondering if clinging to blogging is even worth it any more.

My traffic is as high as it's ever been, but that's mostly due to Google searches. Everybody else has moved on to social media and left blogs behind, so why not me?

I just don't know.

One of these days Blogography is going to break down (again) and I'm just going to leave it there.

    I for one hope you don’t stop.

  2. Lora says:

    I certainly understand your frustration but selfishly hope you don’t give up blogging. I so enjoy your posts and would miss you were you to leave.

  3. FWIW .. I’d miss you if you stopped blogging!
    But yeah totally understand your frustration.
    As a last resort maybe you could convert this installation to static content, and start up with some other platform?

    I’m here for the cats. Please don’t take Jake and Jenny awaaaaayyyyy!

  5. Andy says:

    Agree with the others – I’d miss the posts if you stopped, but working in IT I know how frustrating it can get!
    I don’t read daily now (I’m still bitter about google reader being removed to make it easy to keep up with sites and inoreader is just not as good a replacement) but really enjoy catching up about once a week and as your cats look like 2 of the ones I used to have, I love reading about what they have been up to and seeing their photos.

    I definitely don’t want to see you go. If you left, I’d never hear from you because Facebook is all you use, social media wise, and I can’t stand that. It seems most of your problems stem from the custom build you use on WordPress. Have you considered other blogware or just using a more standard template? I know it would be painful to lose your design but better than losing your voice.
