On August 6th 2003 I launched this blog with (in retrospect) a cringeworthy post. Ah well, I only had an audience of one and didn't have a clue what I really wanted to write about but nevertheless knew I should be writing.
Writing. It's all about the writing. And the format, whether long form blogging, micro-blogging (Twitter), Facebooking, Jaiku-ing, Google+ing, Tumbling, etc., etc., is besides the point. As long as you're writing and sharing your thoughts (however much they make you cringe a decade later).
In these times of ecomomic austerity the Corbett household has been trimming the excess and I've come to realize I'm just not blogging here enough to justify the ongoing cost of TyepPad hosting. I was wishfully thinking for more than a year that I'd spend less of my time on Twitter and more back here but.... hey, it's all about the writing.
It's a coincidence that I've come to this conclusion just as two people who've long been an influence on my blogging are having an intense debate about the 'common web'. My heart is with Winer but my head (and budget) is with Scoble. And micro-blogging is what suits me right now.
I've archived 4 years of Eirepreneur over to Wordpress (that was all I could import). And I may turn to there on the very odd occasion that I can't express it elsewhere. But more likely I'll be posting it to our MissionV blog where most of my energy is focussed these days.
