This Hand-Coded Collapse Blog – Built with Open Source Software and on The World's Worst Blogging Platform™ – is Being Shut Down
So as stated at the beginning of my previous post, yes, I've decided to shut down this hand-coded From Filmers to Farmers blog of mine. I'm guessing you've never heard of the term "hand-coded blog" before (as opposed to just "blog") and might not even know what it means. If that's the case then you're about to find out what exactly it is that it means, because it's via hand-coding that I inadvertently ended up starting this haphazard blog in the first place.
For starters, and having a thoroughly incomplete 190,000+ word manuscript called From Filmers to Farmers: From Couch Potatoes to Potato Cultivators collecting dust on the shelf for about four years now, it was back in 2014 (as I came off of my 5-year hiatus from the Internet) that I decided to purchase the fromfilmerstofarmers.com domain for unknown future considerations, and/or to just ward of an enterprising individual from somehow overhearing the title of my manuscript, snatching up the domain, then either holding it for ransom and/or just plopping a porn site on it in order to get me to cough up some cash. Following my purchase of the domain I got the obtuse idea that I ought to put up a splash page on it, resulting in me teaching myself a bit of coding (HTML and CSS) so I could do so. The splash page was, however, rather ugly.
