This will be the last post on this blog. It took me a long time to do this, as this was my first blog, and it taught me so much. The reality is that I tried to make it both a(nother) well-followed tech blog and a personal blog at the same time. It was a doomed effort, and while some of my posts did okay for hits, they were the ones I didn’t have much fun writing and didn’t care much about. I was having to choose between readers and enjoyment, and I’m not going to make myself miserable for a few clicks.
I have been blogging a lot on tumblr recently, it’s a more social blogging site with very few metrics to obsess over. I’m posting what I want to post when I want to post it and not paying attention to who cares about it. There is no sense – at this point in my life – to blogging for anything other than fun, so I’m calling it quits here on WordPress. Thanks to the people who read here and for all the support. The new version of The Dobbs Method can be found here.
In my never-ending quest to have a strong and enjoyable presence on the internet, I’ve created a tumblr page to compliment my blog as well as Twitter. There are so many thoughts I have that are worth more than a tweet, but that I don’t have time or energy to put into a blog post. I’m hoping tumblr will help me fill these gaps and help me get my two cents in.
You can find my page here. Tumblr is simply a mini-blogging site. I can make a quick post of a cool video I’ve found, an article I liked, or a quick story from my day. We’ll see how it goes. Enjoy!
