Well, it’s been a good run. When I started this site five years ago it was kind of on a whim to play around a little with web design that jived with my aesthetics, organize my photos, and write about nothing. I suppose could’ve had a free Blogspot page and connected it to a free picture-hosting site, but I liked having the total control of my content.
At first I didn’t have much to write about, but over the next couple years it was fun to be able to document trips and the great Oregon adventure. I thought a couple of time about stopping the site, but then Washington came a-calling and the site became a really good way to keep people back home updated on our new west coast life. Out here every weekend seemed to bring something gorgeous to share.
Now that’s all kind of winding down though. And lately I’ve also started to feel a little different about this Internet space. Maybe it’s the whole inane-detail-sharing Facebook movement that got me thinking, “wait, is that what I sound like?” I’m sure an undercurrent of narcissism is pretty normal in any self-story, but I finding just off-putting enough in myself that I wouldn’t mind pulling back for a while.
So, this will probably be the last month of slipperyamoeba.com (four more weeks or so). At least for a while. The last three years of playing in the mountains have got me completely hooked, so I’m sure there will continue to be adventures and I’ll probably keep something going offline. Maybe in a year or two, I’ll come on back and backdate some good stories and some better pictures. It’s been fun.
