There are plenty of blogs which are like abandoned houses. No sign of life, no posts for ages. The quiet blogs.
When I started this blog as My English Lab I saw it as a place where I could pursue my interest in how the English language is used. At the time I was looking at using it to help promote a program of English language learning online. I did not pursue that business project.
Neither, as is clear from even a cursory glance, did I pursue the development of this blog.
That raises the question of what to do.
With various other blogs going, I simply don’t have the time, or at least the determination, to keep this going, at least for the foreseeable future.
Also, although I’d purchased the domain myenglishlab.com, I had not ‘turned it on’ so to speak. When I had an offer recently for the domain, I accepted it, so I no longer own the domain.
So I’m wondering which of the following options to implement:
- delete it
- put on ice and possibly return to it one day
- change the name and re-purpose it
The historian in me doesn’t like the idea of deleting it. I can’t see what I would do with it at a later date, but it may have some curiosity value to someone who stumbles across it.
Now that I’ve sold the domain, myenglishlab.com, it seems a bit pointless, and perhaps just not good form, to keep using the name My English Lab.
I’ll sleep on it.
