What if I wiped the slate clean in the next evolution of

As I get closer and closer to moving my blog from WordPress to Ghost (need to catch up, read this) I’ve been thinking about some bigger changes that might come with it. One thought that is sticking in my mind is the idea of wiping the slate clean, by which I mean, starting fresh and saying goodbye to the last fifteen years of blog posts.

To answer your first question – yes, my blog would take a pretty meaningful traffic hit if I did this, but the more I think about it, the more I’m okay with that. And here’s why.

Posts that I wrote years ago still get pretty steady consistent traffic, but the world has moved on and some of those posts aren’t just irrelevant, they aren’t even close to being aligned with my current thinking. Also, my blog has been focused on domain name investing and in this next chapter, it won’t be since I really want to see this evolve into a true personal blog vs. a blog about a specific topic.

It’s not that I don’t still love domains and domain investing, domains have changed my life and continue to. But I just don’t think I want to write about domain names every day, or even every other day. I love writing about NFTs, enjoy writing about startups and some of the changing dynamics in the VC space. I’m interested in what’s happening with Ethereum Smart Contracts and Solidity development.

Of course, I thought – for those of you who have been with me on this journey for a decade or more, you deserve a seat at the table when it comes to a move like this. One thought I had is that I could move this blog to another domain and make it an archive as I release the new

But I’m okay if my traffic goes down a lot and builds back up, I don’t write this blog for the traffic, I write it because I discovered I have a passion for writing and this blog has allowed me to scratch that itch. So I’d be curious to know what you think? Do you ever go back and read old articles of mine? Would you care if these went away? If there was an archive, would you want access to it?

I want to hear from you – comment and let your voice be heard!
