It is the End… But the Moment Has Been Prepared For.
I started this wordpress blog about 5 years ago, when blogging on Myspace was not reaching the audience I was looking for. So I began to look for a place to expand my audience, and what I wrote about. I branched out, I got noticed. I started writing for other sites. And for a while, Geeksville was becoming a bit neglected.
Then I began to have some family health problems. Then I had my own health problems, and some work problems. Geeksville became less and less a thing for me. It’s not that I didn’t still love things like comic books, Doctor Who and Cosplay. It’s just that it was too much like work (for to little a reward) and I began to feel a real loss of passion for it all.
I was also becoming frustrated with the functionality and the design of wordpress. It’s fine for blogging, but it just wasn’t looking as professional as what I wanted it to be. When I started it, I was quite thrilled with it’s appearance. but as time went on, and newer sites arrived on the scene,I felt amateurish. Like those classic episodes of Doctor Who that I loved, it looked a little cheap along side then series. It drove me to not want to call too much attention to it. But that was ok, I still had my small following on my Facebook fan page and Twitter. I could be quite happy sharing the great work of some of the great friends I have made over the last year in the community.
So, I know what you are thinking. This is the end of Geeksville.
It’s the end of Geeksville 1.0. It’s time for change. And not a moment too soon!
