I’ve given it a lot of thought, and have decided to stop “simulcasting” The Sound Of One Hand Typing on Blogger. There are several reasons for this.
- I get roughly ten page views a day on it, and most of those are Google indexing the page. I occasionally get comments, but I would say that it averages out to less than one a week. In fact, I’m getting about one a month. It hardly seems worthwhile to continue it.
- In order for IFTTT, the technology that makes it all possible, to work, I have to do a lot of extra coding, or it won’t post properly. This is a problem I brought to their attention a couple of years ago, and they still haven’t done anything about it.
- Then, once it passes to Blogger, Blogger intercedes on my behalf and “corrects” the HTML code, causing me fits.
The last simulcast post will be on New Year’s Eve. I’ve already started to change my commenting habits on Blogger to reflect this change, and have changed my Blogger profile.
Note that this blog will continue as long as I can still write on it, and maybe after that. Anyone who might be reading that blog via a feed reader can follow this one by clicking on the RSS icon in the right sidebar on the main blog and following the directions.
Thanks to all who gave their input on this. If you have any questions, comments, feel like cussing me out, etc. be sure and leave me a comment.
