Cleaning House

So, this blog is 11 years old. Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who stops by. I don’t know how I wound up with nearly 200 followers, but you’re all rock stars. And, even if you’re not a follower, you still rock. When I started this blog 11 years ago, I figured I was wasting my time and nobody would care, much less visit and like and comment on my posts. I certainly didn’t think I’d still be doing this in 2020.

Having said all of that, there’s a lot of stuff here. Too much, in fact. I’m running out of space for images. WordPress gives you 3GB free, and I was getting close to that. So, to that end, I’ve started getting rid of some older stuff. A lot of my older stuff just isn’t at all representative of my current work, and a lot of it just needs to go. I’ve deleted all of the posts from 2009 and 2010 already, and I’ve got more to do. I plan to get rid of all of my posts from when I used TrueSpace 3D. That was decent software that I used for over 10 years, but I switched to Lightwave in 2012 and I’ve never looked back. I’ve tried Blender off and on for about 10 years now, but I don’t like it as well as Lightwave. Now, my gallery I’m leaving alone and all of the images in it are being left alone. I accidentally deleted one, but I’m trying to preserve those as they represent some of my best work. I’ll also be getting rid of a lot of WIP posts, as none of that stuff really matters anymore. I’ll especially be getting rid of WIP posts for projects that I never finished and will never finish, even from more recent stuff. This includes my recent attempt to convert my Lightwave TOS Enterprise to Blender, since I’m back to using Lightwave. (I couldn’t find a Linux distribution that didn’t piss me off, so I went back to Windows 10, which only slightly pisses me off) I also got rid of that stupid “Image Rights” page. The older I get, the less shit like that matters to me. I figure, if you really need to take my images, remove the credits and then post them like they’re your own work, then you’re fucking pathetic. That’s all there is to say about that.

Other than that, it’s business as usual. I may change themes, I haven’t decided yet.

  1. Thanks for brightening my morning with your image rights comment.

    11 years, man, doesn’t seem like it. Enjoying the journey, will stay tuned. 😁

  2. Hi EG180, it has been a pleasure seeing your work and has inspired me a lot. I was especially attracted to your images you composited with the NASA imagery as the backdrop, then I discovered you had a collection of lightsaber models too. I’m onto my fourth year of running my blog and have used up about 40% of my storage allowance so I reckon I have about 8 more years left! Thanks for the help and tips you’ve given me.

    • I’m sure I could go another year, but I decided to go ahead and start this process. It’s a lengthy one, especially since WordPress is really slow at bulk removing posts.
