I’ve not posted for about 6 weeks. I think I’m bored with this. Hyperlocal never gained acceptance in Australia and the audience for food blogs has long since gone. This site gets a similar amount of traffic now as it did back in 2008 before peak of blogging c2010.
Now it’s all done via centralised social media platforms. Very few people grasp the importance of building their own platforms and maintaining their independence from the multinational digital corporations, or their authenticity separate from commercial concerns.
I’m planning to decommission this site by the end of the year.
