Things in my life over the past six months or so have been crazy to put it the most mildly. Divorce, Bankruptcy, Heart Attacks and more. So I may have made a brash decision or two as well. One of which was closing my website CastleRain. Since that day I have been asked by numerous people why I did that. My rational at the time was I had built it with the hopes that others whom I was involved with at the time would also get involved. That never came to pass.
Friends have reminded me time and again of this obvious truth. CastleRain was of my own invention and I have had it online since 1999. Nary a word or assistance from anyone else ever. So why should I abandon something because of someone else especially since they had really no part of it.
I almost gave the domains away to a comic book company who has been around for just about the same amount of time with nearly the exact same name. It’s a good thing they never replied to my emails.
So in all, I brought it back. It’s back to being my official blog. I’ve pruned out all the gaming posts and kept them on my Gamers Den site. Removed all my blog posts from there and kept them here. Plus I still have my whimsical story site from my adventures in technical support going on as well. All sites linked to one another. Just so happens, I have another domain that was supposed to be a guild name for Warcraft, but I decided to use it as an anchor for all my websites. I call it the Suspicion of Mischief Network.
EDIT: All sites have been recombined to just this one 🙂
It’s good to have it back. Perhaps the next significant person in my life will appreciate what I do and who I am more than the previous has.
As with any move or changes, things get broken, lost, duplicated and so on. If you see something I missed, please let me know so I can fix it 🙂
