Farewell!


That's all folks! I can't fight Google and I can't spend hours working on blog posts, once seen by thousands, that are now seen only by a few dozen at best. I refuse to pay Google to enhance online searches on my behalf and my punishment is to not appear in any search results at all. My life is far too busy to continue. I may post once in a while if there's something on which I just have to comment. Farewell!

  8. I've been reading your blog via Feedly. (rss feed reader) Never (seldom) leave comments, but I do enjoy your site. And I mentioned 40 year itch back in June on one of my "4 for Friday" posts. (which probably did you absolutely no help in added readers...but whaddyagonnado?!) Stay well and screw Google.)

  11. Really sorry to hear this. I've enjoyed reading your blog once a week for the past several years, such nostalgia - you will be missed. It's been great to be reminded of events from so far back even though it underlines my own decrepitude! Have to say I'm ignorant of the specific problems you're facing from Google but appreciate that you feel unrewarded for all your efforts by diminishing number of visitors. Hope you can find a way back in the future. Cheers!
