Leaving WordPress

Hello, readers. A monumental shift is afoot at Jason Journals, announcing both a new name and home for the blog. Though it’s the end of an era, it’s also the beginning of another.

Jason Journals has been steadily going since 2017. Blogging about any topic, rather than a niche, has helped me post regularly for several years. That’s not changing. I’m just switching platforms.

What’s the new blog name?

jasonmcfadden

What will the blog be about?

The same as Jason Journals: anything.

That said, I’ve been de-emphasizing computing and gaming and re-focusing on minimalism, simplicity, and reading. So I’m writing more about less, but I’ll still cover previous topics. I might share personal stuff too.

Overall, I’m still Jason and still “journaling.” Essentially, my blog isn’t changing much. It’s partly why the new name is simply jasonmcfadden. Like Jason Journals, it’s my personal blog.

Where’s the new blog home?

Blogger

What’s happening to Jason Journals on WordPress?

  • I’ll leave it static/dormant for now and at some point remove the custom URL.

Why Blogger?

The risk of using Blogger, which Google could sunset anytime, is real. I share a story and the reasons why I’m Choosing Blogger In 2022 in a separate post, publishing soon at my new site.

For a partial answer to why, here’s the link to one of my first posts, which published only on Blogger before I ultimately launched on WordPress back in 2017:

Also, I’ve published new posts at jasonmcfadden that are not on Jason Journals, so be sure to check out what you’ve missed so far:

Thanks to WordPress for hosting my blog reliably over the years. And thank you, readers, for taking your valuable time to read and comment on my posts.

I hope to see you at jasonmcfadden and look forward to this next endeavor.
