It’s time to blow this thing up

Posted on 25th February, 2008 at 9:02pm by joel

As it turns out, I’m a horrible at this whole maintaining-a-website thing. Go figure.

This site has clearly run its course, for more than a few reasons. Here are a few…

  • I obviously can’t keep up the blogging thing. I put a “For Sale” notice up on my car and never bothered to show off my new one.
  • This site does a horrible job of featuring my paintings, even though I haven’t finished one in quite a while. Maybe if the site actually filled its role as a quality portfolio, I’d be more inclined to continue working on said portfolio.
  • This site also does a horrible job of showing off my web work. Unlike painting, I actually have been doing a good bit of work here. Some of it is online, but I haven’t been updating that site much lately, either.
  • …many, many more reasons I don’t feel like listing (read: laziness).

So, what am I going to do? I dunno. I’ll leave it as is, for now. I’ve got a pile of ideas for new, better, cooler sites that actually serve a purpose. Clearly, this isn’t going to work and no amount of expansion/rejiggering is going to solve it. I need to blow it up and start over. I’ve got a couple other domains at my disposal, and just might make use of them. We shall see.

    Well, hate to see you giving this whole thing up, but hope everything’s going well for ‘ya. Adios until the next time I wander through the neighborhood.

    I hope you get this site up and running with your new logo. It would also be nice to see your artwork and web designs on this site. You will get to it eventually, right?
