Ecowar - where to go?

Recommended Posts

For years, I have been blogging about natural resources and conflict. I ended up publishing some of it as a little book. The book has now been free for years, I rarely have the drive to blog on ecowar any more, and as a result I just have two inactive url's:

http://ecowar.eu/site/

http://ecowar.blogspot.com/

I'm getting to the point where I'm thinking I should just cancel the sites. But I could also take it into another direction?

What is you impression of the sites? Does any kind of relevance come to your mind? Any idea for content or spinoffs?

I think you should keep the two websites.

Either you keep your website and blog as an archive (as it currently is) or turn ecowar.eu into a more active blog/site. You don't have to write long blog posts about the subject. Instead, I think you should keep it updated with short snippets, links, videos, and images about the site's topic. Move your domain name to a Tumblr blog - that format would be perfect for lightweight and "simple" text and media posts. And keep your excellent book as a  page attached to the blog/site.

Whatever you do, don't get rid of your domain name!

Just made a kind of prototype for a new platform. Planning to do something similar to what you just wrote.

Blogspot will be left as an "archive". Will link to my new site, of course. Will do something similar with the ecowar.eu/site (drupal 7... growing old).

Thank you for supporting! You are welcome to create an account and do whatever, of course.
