I’ve been operating this blog for nearly five years. I’ve struggled to find a niche. I’ve actually found my niche at my other site hipdiggs.com. I feel really good about the direction Hip Diggs is taking me. I’ll continue to post at Hip Diggs regularly, but this site has a different future. All good things must be renewed.
This is the last post at danerickson.net as you know it. In the near future I’ll be completely remodeling this site. Why? It’s simple. Since starting this site, my understanding of blogging and managing websites has changed. My priorities have changed. I’ve changed.
I’ll keep this site up until Sptember 30, 2015. At that point, the site will go into an “under construction” mode. I’ll be saving all the poetry that has not yet been published. Expect another book of poetry sometime next year. Once the poetry is moved into another format, I’ll delete almost all of the content from this site. Crazy? Maybe. I’ve already deleted more than half the content. But it’s not so crazy. Great things are born out of renewal. This is how we grow.
So I’ll be creating a new danerickson.net. All good things must be renewed. I have no definitive date for the new site, but it will likely be ready in early 2016. What will the new site look like? I’m not quite sure myself yet, but I know this much.
- The new site will be simple.
- The new site will be more personal.
- The new site will focus on my musical art.
- The new site will likely have less photos.
- The photos on the new site will be my own art.
- I will still blog, but less often.
- Topics will be more life commentary in nature. This may include music, politics, religion, culture, and simple living.
I thank you all who have followed and supported danerickson.net to this point. I hope you’ll continue to support my music, writing, art, and commentary in the future.
