As you’ve probably heard by now, Google is shutting down Google+ in the near future. I’ve gone ahead and deleted my Google+ account, removed the Google+ link from the social widget at the top of the page, and disconnected the option to share my posts to Google+. Out of the hundreds of visitors this site gets every day, I’m sure the two of you who actually use Google+ will be disappointed. But this is out of my hands.
Also, over the next couple weeks, I’m going to be moving my “random pictures site” from Ello to Tumblr. You may remember that Ello launched as a Facebook competitor in 2014, as a response to [whatever thing Facebook was doing at the time that made everyone mad and promise to quit the site]. It wasn’t successful, so transitioned to a Pintrest-like site for artists. Since I don’t actually “create” anything – just repost pictures of pretty models & actresses and land- and cityscapes – I feel like I don’t “belong” there any more. I have some visitors coming in from out of town next week, and once they’re gone I’m going to sign up with Tumblr, find a decent theme, and move my old posts there. I’ll keep you posted!

Tumblr is on my s**t list right now. I got the my usual site (chipva) but let it lapse and stupidly deleted the 2FA from my Google Authenticator. Even after sending them a picture of me holding uyp my email address and today’s date they won’t give me back my site. So I’ve decided to heck with them, I don’t need to Tumbl! 🙂
Moral of the story: Keep your 2FA keys even if you think you won’t need them.
