As you can probably tell, I’ve deleted the somewhat-new WordPress weblog and all my hand coded entries. As Neil asked over SMS, Why?
My response? Because I can. It’s only words I’m erasing, and I’m not so foolish as to delete without archiving a copy first. I’ll probably post a few past entries now and again if I’m in the mood.
I’m not sure what precipitated this move. I think it was exasperation as I tried to upgrade my version of WordPress, with things not working and my not knowing why (now I know why, but I really can’t be arsed any more). I then started thinking that my website directory is a mess. Too many sections. Too many photos all over the bloody shop.
Some of my posts this past year have told you that I’m feeling frustrated and generally pissed off at my situation in Xiamen. Consider this my acting out. As Neil says, it’s a shame I’ve deleted so much (all posts saved, but comments since the migration to WordPress are gone), but seriously, who gives a fuck?
So there you go. All new now.
Maybe I’m being stupid by getting rid of so much history (by Internet standards). I probably am. This sort of action could herald the end, or it might not. We’ll see.
It’s only a weblog, after all.
