I’ve been wondering recently about rejoining things all together. Unsplitting all the various sites I’ve had over time and bringing them all back under one banner. Most importantly this would concern my photography blog which would be rejoined here. So I’d have a few posts about how to take better pictures as well as showing off my images a bit more here.
There are a few reason that I’m thinking of doing this but they mostly come down to a practical and a philosophical.
The practical is that I want to save some money by cutting back on the web hosting that I’ve been paying for recently. I’ve already removed serval old sites and I’m looking to get rid of a personal side project that I was very fond off, but there are some activities that I am still keen to keep pushing forward and writing about (such as photography). As such, If I rejoin the sites here, then I can pay for one cheaper web hosting. That’s the practical.
The philosophical reason is that I really like the idea of showing off a more complete picture of me, the picture of me which shows the side interests, the diversions, the different facets and turns of my attention. I also like the idea that it might put people in touch with other aspects of my personality than they would otherwise. Admittedly this is also a much more “amateur” view. This is not the thing someone does if they want to make a really respected detailed tutorial course on a subject, instead it is the sort of interesting personality site you might find interesting in following…or not.
I’m not set or decided yet as to what I’ll decided to do in the end but I’m seriously considering it. It probably means that I’ll write a lot more here as well (which I think is a good thing) but I can see that this could be a way to devalue the content that I do have in different places.
So there you have it, I’m not sure what I’ll do in the end but I thought I’d voice my idea anyway.
