Geocities Closing down email that I got

Geocities Closing down email that I got

So by 26th of October 2009, we no longer see Geocities free web service. Maybe the reason for this was, the existence of web application that caused the geocities technology to fall far behind the competition.

Just now, I went and login to see the files that I save inside. The service is the same like 2 years ago. Or maybe the same like 7 years ago if i not wrong since I use it starting 2002. So with this never improve technology, for sure webmasters will no longer interested to work with it. Plus out there a lot of blogging platform like blogspot or wordpress exist this make it lost in the internet world.

Since it is closing down, there is a possibilities Yahoo! is developing some new technology to serve it’s loyal customer. Who knows, but i’ll wait for that since I’m a yahoo user for nearly 10 years now.

I start blogging in 2008 but I have never take blogging seriously. And that is the biggest mistakes that I make in my life. In 2010 I almost stop blogging completely. I concentrate on my low paying day job and was too tired to even look at my blog. But then I still keep my blog and websites up. After 7 years, I realize that I cannot only depends on my day job. I could not afford being in the rat race 9 to 5 work and also on unpaid on-call work. Then I realize something, if I never stop blogging in 2010, I will have lots of audience by now. It takes few years for me to realize this mistakes. And now here I am again, creating a good content for you. I hope you can subscribe to my mailing list and also like my Facebook page.
