I haven’t posted new content in a while and several of my regular readers have reached out wondering why. I’ve decided to end Granola Shotgun for the moment, although it may return in a different form at some point.
WordPress has been my host for the last five years and I’ve been very happy with the ease of use and affordability of the site. But as is so often the case with evolving tech platforms WordPress recently “upgraded and improved my user experience.” What was once a simple intuitive process that allowed me to indulge in a pleasant pastime has become an exercise in frustration as I struggle to navigate the new format. I don’t like having my cheese moved. So WordPress improved themselves out of a solid customer.
And after who knows how many photos I’ve hit my storage limit and will need to upgrade to a more expensive package if I want to continue. I’ve never wanted to monetize Granola Shotgun because that would involve ads and a level of management that feels too much like work to me.
So I’m shutting down for now as I look for new avenues for my material. I offer my thanks to all who have followed me along this far.
