the wind up

Well, it looks like there isn't a quorum to keep stonesoup going, so I'm going to call it a day.

I'll be starting a blog collection at clockworkfish.co.nz or similar (possibly stonesoup.clockworkfish.co.nz), please get in touch if you want to migrate there. I think independent blog hosting is important, and I like that all the stonesoup blogs are through people who know people.

I'll be archiving all the sites, and you're welcome to a copy of your site if you want. Generally you can import entries into other blogging software, though your milage may vary. I'm also happy to put in redirects from the stonesoup blogs to wherever - just tell me where you're landing up.

While I'm keen on the next incarnation of my online space, I'm sad to end this. It's been grand, and I've been very glad to be part of this community - it's been a privilege and a very cool part of the internet.

When will the wind up be actually occuring? I'm organising to move my blog elsewhere.

Incrementally over the next few weeks I expect. I'm currently archiving a few of the blogs which have been defuncted over the last few years, and I'll start on the active ones after that.

I'm happy enough to leave yours for at least a couple of weeks - and put in a redirect to the new one when it suits (just give me a little notice).

Oh no! I saw the original message about this when I was packing for the Solomons I think, and then forgot about it... which I guess does say something about my level of commitment. I've really loved being part of Stonesoup and am sad to hear it's winding up. But although I think about blogging quite often I don't seem to be finding the time to do it. I would like to move my stuff somewhere else. Will be happy to not get emails redirected from my stonesoup email though... nothing but spam for yonks.
