It is a long farewell
A year ago, I was informed that the blogging service at Blog-City will close on the 1st of January 2012 and it lead to a scramble to move all my material, over 1,500 blogs written in just under 7 years to a new location.
I had opened a blog at Blogger for the purposes of posting comments in early 2007 but from the end of 2009 as if I was prescient, I began publishing my blogs simultaneously on http://akin.blog-city.com and what became http://akinblog.nl.
The house move
There was no easy way of migrating my blogs that I really had to do it over about 7 months brick by heavy brick until all was done.
With my paid subscription running out at http://akin.blog-city.com I have decided to allow the blog to run in Read-Only mode, which means no new posts will published there until the blogging service expires on the 1st of January 2012.
The statistics front, I have to-date had 3,828,382 hits since 8 Dec 2003 with 1,730 blogs, it is now time to drive my readership to http://akinblog.nl
Thank you everyone for reading my blogs.
Last blog on http://akin.blog-city.com
Dear Friend, Reader, Visitor, Fan, Inquirer & Search Engine,
I will not more be updating this site after almost 8 years of posting here, I started blogging here on the 8th of December 2003; all new blogs will now be hosted on Google Blogger at http://akinblog.nl however, this blog whilst in read-only mode will remain active until the blogging service of Blog-City closes on the 1st of January 2012.
Over the last few months, I have successfully copied all my blogs to Blogger and simultaneously published in both places.
Thank you for visiting and following my blog and writings, though I am saddened that Blog-City is closing at a time that I have consistently exceeded 100,000 page views a month, the crew at Blog-City have always be responsive, helpful, considerate and kind – I wish them the very best in their future endeavours.
