you might have known this was coming
So, given that I haven’t shown up in these parts for over a year, you might be thinking that I’m only popping in to tell you that I’m shutting down this blog, once and for all. If so, props to you! You are right.
The truth is, I am an intermittent blogger at best and an unreliable one at worst. I’ve had not one but two blogs on the go concurrently for ten years and, well, when you write intermittently and unreliably, two blogs is at least one too many. And maybe even two too many. Having said that, I’ve had some little corner of the internet all for me for too long to toss it all in and give myself over to Twitter and Facebook alone.
My solution? A single online space that combines both my personal and professional interests. I can’t promise that I will show up there daily, but I do plan to write more (and, ok, link to things more), and most of that writing will be published there. Do visit, if you are so inclined, or subscribe to the feed if that’s what people still do these days. And fair warning: it’s not all library/design content over there, but the bulk of it probably will be.
Since this domain will disappear eventually (archives have already been imported into the new blog), I’ve also had to give some thought to what to do about the Blogging Libraries Wiki. That, too, will go away, and I’ve outlined my rationale for that decision over on the wiki, so go have a look if it’s a resource you care about.
Thanks to everyone who has read/subscribed to bwal.net over the past nine years! I do hope you’ll stop by e.tches.ca for a visit.
