Reassessing Priorities

This website is one of the the most important things I do. I’m sure no one in particular cares much about it other than me, but for me at least, it’s a creative outlet that I need to survive. I don’t think I could have gotten through this past year without it, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s as much a part of me as my left hand.
So earlier this week, I found out some really chilling information that I’m not at liberty to discuss here at any length, at least not yet. But it has me considering a number of possibilities for the future of this website; among them are a move of the entire site to an undisclosed location, or potentially restricting part or all of the content to a password-protected area. There are a couple of other possibilities as well. I hate to have to do any of this, but considering my current circumstances, I may not have a choice.

    this is a great site.
    i check it at least 5 times a week
    in our ever increasing Corporatized/Globalized/Unified McWorld I found the blogasphere my only outlet at times.
    With few exceptions I don’t care much for the drivel and krap piped out of the TV and mainstream press every day.
    Everywhere I turn someone is trying to sell me something or get me to make a donation. Sites like this offer a much needed break from these activites.
    I went to a funeral of a beloved teacher today so it made me think about what is and what is not important in this life.
    Tonight, I went out at sunset with the dog and saw the light fade out of the sky against the profile of the freshly barren trees. It was an amazing sight.
    I don’t remember who said it, I think it was a Greek philosopher.
    “It is only in the evening that we realize how glorious the day has been.”

    Dear Steph,
    I hope nothing bad is happening to you. I remember when you said you had a stalker sometime back and you warned him to back off. If someone is bothering you again I hope you still have the resorces to make them stop. I enjoy reading about what’s going on with you and also all the cool things you find and share.
    Also, I don’t know if it is my computer or your site but the comment form is cut off an inch or so on the left margin. I just hit preview and this page is fine.

    I am a regular reader of your site too. I hope you’ll be able to resolve any difficulties and that you’ll continue posting here. I would miss commonplacebook greatly if you have to take it down. Take care of yourself.

    Steph: I echo what everyone else has already said. Even though I rarely comment, your blog holds a special place in my blogosphere. I’m a regular reader, I enjoy your insights, and I hope everything will be okay for you.

    Not only do I hold you in high regard, so does the rest of the Nuvolab team. I personally check this site 7-10 times a week, and I hope it stays strong, without having to go into hiding.

    I don’t have a stalker again, thankfully. I’m not in any physical danger. Sorry; didn’t mean to leave anyone with that impression. I don’t know how much I can or should go into discussing the problem, though.

    I hate it when “outside circumstances” force people to think about going to ground. I hope you get everything worked out because I do enjoy reading, even if I don’t comment all that often.
