A Body of Work

  When a body of work is lost,  there is not only the inevitable loss of accomplishment, there is the obliteration of years. No longer can anyone point to your digital footprint and say "check out this guy's work from 2007", instead,  only those who have favored and followed the writer, will continue on a search for the writers work.

  Much like when an old friend finds you on Facebook,  the relationship is rekindled as though there was never a gap. But for those that have made the journey, most are suddenly lost.

  When a body of work is lost, the fan base suffers, and the rebuild begins.

  Sometimes the disappointment also breaks business relationships too,  relationships founded on the body of work.

Renewed Beginnings

  After seven years with, somehow,  my email address was missed on the notification of the termination of their blogging servcices.

  Not their promotions, not their advertisements, not their upgrades, but the emails advising of termination.

  After the demise of their service today, a new blog had to be created.

  These Renewed Beginnings are not uncommon, but this time, I feel like a cat being forced to take a selfie.
