You know that one where I setup the blog outside of the WordPress city walls ? I’m wondering if it is worth it or not. Yes, I know – this is absolutely typical of me. Feel free to throw rotten fruit and vegetables in my general direction.
I just feel like there are too many things going on – too many balls in the air – too many things to look after. I could do with cutting back.
What do you think? Would it be easier if I just returned to the fold ?
When I first left (about ten days ago), it was fun – setting up a new blog where I had total control over everything. Little by little though, I found myself wiring the new blog ever more intricately into everything I had left behind – mostly to reduce friction for those reading at wordpress.com, and to make commenting easy – and then doing that caused the new blog to slow to a crawl.
It almost feels like if you want to write a blog these days, you have to do it at WordPress – there really is no other sensible option (unless you’re one of the internet Titans, such as Dooce). I hate being one of the crowd though.
