Startups get acquired. Walled gardens suddenly shut down. Drop * From --
Everything is temporary.
In 2009, Yahoo destroyed the most amount of history in the shortest amount of time  , 15 years worth of amateur created web pages filled with stories, animated GIFs, family photo albums - all full of personalities and soul all deleted.
The average lifespan of a web page is just 92 days  yet Yahoo managed to delete almost a Terabyte worth of content just 186 days after Yahoo made it’s announcement. Those who wanted to save their family photo albums could just move them to Flickr - I’m sure that they would be safe there, after all storage doesn’t seem to be an issue. End of sarcasm. Since they offered one free Terabyte  of storage, just ignore the fact they were also acquired by Yahoo in 2005.
When hosting your content on a platform that is owned by a private corporation it has the ultimate say over what happens to information, photographs, conversations, and interaction that occurred within that space.  So naturally it was a cue to panic when Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer announced Yahoo acquired Tumblr and said “We promise not to screw it up.”  in 2013 considering I was hosting my blog on Tumblr.
As the years progressed - I kept
promising myself that this year would be the year I finally relaunch my website. Which is why when Verizon purchased Yahoo for $5 Billion in 2016.  I refused to post on Tumblr to motivate myself to finally move my blog back into my site which would force me to finally update it after ~9 years.
Welcome to the Reset.
It was time to start over completely. Choose a new typeface, color scheme, redraw myself and make my site responsive. I started playing around with SVG, CSS Grid Layout, etc… and because I was focusing on perfection months started to pass then all of a sudden my hosting renewal bill comes in and my site is mostly unchanged from when I first started my career around 2010.
When the web was young, people would just publish unfinished work all the time so I think I’ll take a page out of the book Creating GeoCities Websites and publish my unfinished site, even if it’s not what I originally intended, because nothing will get done if I keep focusing on perfection.
