Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Change of address

with 4 comments

I was informed by WordPress this morning that my renewal of this site had not gone through.

It seems to me that there is very little value for me in continuing to keep this blog ad free and using its current address. I think what will happen is that it will revert to stephenrees.wordpress.com (in due course) and continue to exist but with ads (from now on). I have replied to WordPress and they have confirmed that.

I would like to thank the very small number of people who continue to read and “like” every post – your loyalty is greatly appreciated.

I continue to be active on Facebook and Twitter, and I have managed to hang on to my gmail address despite the activities of people who have the same – or very similar – name as I do. I suppose one of them may eventually take over the stephenrees.blog domain. If so, I wish them Good Luck with it.

  3. It does mean that https://stephenrees.wordpress.com will continue to work, and the prose already posted will remain deathless. I am not sure if there will be many more new posts.

    One of the things that I currently deal with on a daily basis is a bunch of PR guff in my email which I sometimes decide deserves to be shared with my blog readership. This week one of them seemed very interesting, but the PR company who sent it also made clear that they did not regard bloggers of worthy of (free) access to the conference they were promoting. So I did not give them any (free) exposure. Indeed I have yet to see any coverage of that conference in the mainstream media.

    This morning there is a longish thing about the Wet’suwet’en nation from change.org – which may well be pretty much duplicate what people see there, but posting it here would at least show my support for their resistance to the current pipeline proposal. Is that important though?
