It seems that recent years blogs are becoming a thing of the past. As I watch the blog roll on Northern California Trout, posts from those blogs are becoming fewer and fewer.
With the advent of social media, those that had blogs have migrated to Facebook, Twitter, or some other format.
I’ve mentioned on many occasions that, although I have a Facebook account, I only use it to locate people. An example being two of my first cousins that have been not been in contact with our family for all my life and most of theirs. Other than that kind of search, I don’t do any social media nor do I have a desire to do any.
I’ve contemplated ending Northern California Trout for more than a year. Now, with the current Covid-19 pandemic and this Summer with the massive wildfires, it’s been almost impossible to go fishing. Summer trout fishing is done in the mountains East of here, but now with the huge fires and I’m sure you’ve heard about them, they have closed all of the National Forests and that’s where all the streams and lakes are. So, unless you want to fish for warm water fish, you are just SOL.
The next part of Northern California Trout is the .com. I purchased the name through GoDaddy.com. Since there is seemly little interest in blogs any more it just doesn’t make sense to pay for a .com that is coming passe.
To add to that is the new interface on blogger. Everybody has a “new mousetrap” so to speak and blogger (which drives Northern California Trout) has introduced its new interface and in my opinion, it sucks, but then that’s their problem.
I want to thank each and every person, from all over the world, that has stopped by since the inception of NCT on January 7, 2009. I’ve had about 870,000 views and have shared my stories 1187 times. It’s been a great run, but I think it’s time to go.
So, Northern California Trout will remain on the web at northerncaliforniatrout.com until about January 2022, but I will cease posting as this will be the final post.
Thank you again and please, stay safe.
