While sat here in the sun with my Jack Russell and a coffee. I had a look at my domain statistics just see when it was due for renewal and it amazed me to realise I have owned totalreach.co.uk for 7 years this month.
While thinking back through the 7 years that I have had this domain and what I have done with it, I had some mixed emotions because things have been and gone. The problem with me is that I have to have the latest and greatest, I have the urge to try new technologies and yes that is good but it also has its drawbacks. In those 7 years I have always been doing one project or another but it hasn’t always been on Total Reach or it has been trying different platforms on Total Reach. While Total Reach itself hasn’t really changed over the years its always been for the most part my blog, its just I’ve had down time from it deciding to go with other platforms like Blogger and Tumblr. Or changing system wide things that has meant I’ve lost my content.
With this reflection I’ve made me decision and that is to make sure to stick with WordPress and Total Reach for the future. I don’t know how long for but make an effort just to stick with it so I can look back and have something that shows the changes in my life, or the difference in content I was producing over time. I know that for a prime example Total Reach started off with Technology news and then went into current affairs. Nowadays its game related but although I know the stages I went through I think it would be quite cool just to see the content. With that trip down memory lane I think its time to sign off as Jake (the Jack Russell) is chewing something he shouldn’t :p
