I doubt many of you noticed — and for good reason! – but I deleted almost all of the “Pages” from this blog since most were empty anyway.
My original plans for the site changed drastically over the last 17 months of the pandemic. Obviously, for much of the time travel has been restricted and a huge amount of my writing became focused on pandemic-related issues for more than just the Cusco region.
Because of that, I’ll be moving things to a different site that will be much more representative of what I’m doing now. As a novice blog person with virtually zero experience when I began in 2019, the learning curve was great, but steady over the past 2+ years.
I think the new site will look better and be much better organized. At least that’s the plan!
I still have to figure out how to carry over many of my blog posts so they are not lost. Probably most of the information news stuff will eventually be gone, but I plan to continue doing the same kind of journalism that I’ve done for the past 17 months.
I don’t know when the new site will be ready, but I’ve been working pretty hard on it and I have a feeling it will be up and running in a couple of weeks. Keep you eyes out, but know that I will be making all kinds of announcement when things move, of course!
As I’m building this new site form scratch, the opportunity to do it better from the start is there. I’d love to hear your thoughts on things like these questions:
- What would you like to see?
- What things would you like me to continue?
- What new things would you like me to cover?
- What would make the site more useful and what would be a waste of time?
- What would make the site more visually appearing?
- More photos? More stories? More news? More videos? Anything else?
Your ideas really mean a lot to me. Please feel free to explain why your thoughts are meaningful to you because it’s better to understand what you’re thinking. Sometimes an idea doesn’t make sense until I hear someone explain it.
