I am getting a bit bored with vampgirl.com. I've not updated it in a long while now as I ran out of space and have had issues with hosts and whatnot... I'm thinking I *will* update the whole lot (i suppose) in the summer when I have some free time and then leave it as a complete piece - a finished project.

I have a LOT of members on the forum - and I don't want to give that up or let them down, but after a big haul when I get round to it I don't think I want to update the site much any longer... It really only filled a gap in my life for a few years (as my closest friends will understand the reasons why) and now I have a lot of college/theatre on the go and a fresh new start ahead of me and I don't want to be wasting time on teh interweb with page editing, promoing, site-whoring and petty bitching. I've never done the petty bitching (although I've had to defend myself unnecessarily on occasion), but keeping a big site going/updated used to take up a LOT of my time and I haven't got the time, inclination or enthusiasm anymore...

I have real life things and a happy present/future to enjoy and don't want to lose myself to a monitor.

Don't panic - I'm not giving up LJ, or the forums - I'm just being open and honest about the feelings/general apathy I have for the actual upkeep of the dotcom... Ok, so a big overhaul is in order and it will be done, but I thought I'd let you know and ask your opinion on the matter.

Should I make it a 'finished' site for academic information and whatnot, or restart the monthly updates of books/movies and stuff? Or should I keep the monthly book/movie stuff for the forum instead??

Quite honestly, I'd be lost without my moderators - they do a damn fine job and I promise I won't let you guys down - it's only the actual future of the site that hangs in the balance here...

Ideas? Anyone?

The middle road

Who says you have to do either, the world is not full of definites.

The site has clearly brought you pleasure. But you have no responsibilities towards it. Why not take the middle road. Update when you find something that the site needs, otherwise don't.

Anyway, it's never a fresh start, you always take you with you. Be the you that you were and strive for balance.

Philosophical neh.
