In the last month, I’ve made a total of four posts to this blog. From that list of posts, only one has been of any real substance. The fact is (to keep things simple): I haven’t really had the time to dedicate to this blog. I’m considering shutting it down.
All posts would continue to be available; I’d simply absorb this blog into my web development blog. I’d do all the appropriate redirects to keep the resource available – but I’d be maintaining one fewer sites.
Life would be simpler.
I haven’t decided for certain yet – but I’ve been thinking about this for a long time.
Running a search marketing consulting company is not actually in my best interest. As a web developer, the majority of my clients actually are search marketing consultants. Does it make sense for me to run a business which competes with my clients? Not really. Especially when I really enjoy the development aspect more.
I still intend to write on search marketing — I think there are a lot of important issues where search marketing, usability, and accessibility intersect and I fully intend to explore those issues. When writing such cross-topic posts, however, I’ve been hindered by choosing where to publish them! I’d rather make that a bit simpler for myself, and send everything to one place.
Anybody who has an opinion on this subject, please do chime in!
