I am 75 years of age and I been blogging about 37 years. That is a long time. I have made a lot of changes over the years. Time for a change again.
Visits to my written blog have gone down in the last few years. Oh sure I had a few times when a blog post got 2000 views in one day. That was rare but did happen. But visits to Howard’s Notebook got down to 500 visitors a day and has been heading down. Now that does not count RSS reads and it does not count the blog posts that went to other sites. But people are going to Facebook and I guess some other places.
So I am going to change with the times.
Now my YouTube site is doing very good. I have been on YouTube since they began, in 2005, and I have over 600 videos on YouTube.
I am making changes, new URL, and trying to get control of things. I feel like things are out of control. Part of it is Facebook and the other sites… I never feel like I have the control that I have had … So I am looking at everything and going to try and tie them all into a smaller package.
Starting today I will be doing podcasts. I will be using SoundCloud and so you can expect podcasts from me soon.
For the next few days and maybe even a week there could be some problems. I have a lot of links and RSS feeds to change. Give me some time.
