The Death of My Technology BlogYou did read the title write, this is the end of my technology blog. This weekend, my technology blog is going to die.
You can say goodbye to this brilliant blog, and hello to something fantastic and new. For a while now I had planned to 'destroy' my technology blog and do one of two things: 1, Revamp it, so that it is powered by WordPress, or 2, Rename it, so it is on it's own totally new domain powered by WordPress. I have decided to do nether.
But wait, does that mean Christopher Roberts Technology Blog will cease to exist?
But... it's not all bad news.
As Christopher Roberts Technology Blog dies, a new blog will rise from the ashes. This blog is not going to be like my current one in many ways. First off, not only will I be talking about technology, but also about social media, blogging, science, SEO and more...
The other main difference is that my new blog is going to be a community blog. What does this mean? Well, I will own the domain and have administrator access to the blog, but, anyone will be able to read, comment and write for this blog. The idea is that I can gather bloggers from all walks of tech life, and have them write all to write in one place. This will not be an alternative to their blog, but an extra place to write.
This means that you will get fantastic content from brilliant authors, all in one place, whilst the authors get great quality links to their content. It's a win win situation. I am going to be an author, but I hope to take more of a backseat than I do on my own blog.
The real emphasis of this blog is that it's not my blog, its our blog, it's your blog, we are all in it together and we all benefit.
So what will be new, and what will be different? Well for a start you will be able to comment. Yes that's right, you will be able to leave your feedback to posts! Also you will be able to interact with the blog in a whole new way, with a much wider social media coverage, meaning that the great content and discussion is not just on the blog, but the community continues to the social networking sphere.
So what is this blog called? How can you get to it?
Unfortunately it's not finished yet, and it will be under construction for some time. However I hope to have it publicly running in some form by the end of the weekend. My final blog post will come once the new blog has been successfully launched - so stay tuned!
I look forward to seeing you on the other side
Any ideas or feedback for the new blog, send then via my contact form.
