For some time now I've been debating whether or not to keep this blog up and running. I've had this blog up for just over 6 years, and have 115 blog posts, which comes to an average of right at 20 posts per year. It appears that the majority of those post were in 2009 and 2010 (I only had 1 post in 2013!). So, needless to say, I don't blog much anymore.
While lack of time can certainly be a contributor to my not blogging, the truth is I just don't have anything to blog about anymore. After becoming a full time DBA, I don't do any development. I'm not up to date on any of the latest mobile or web technologies, and the last version of CF I used was version 9. So, I feel most of the content here is outdated and no longer relevant. I have considered starting a DBA focused blog, but if I do it will be a clean start and separate from this blog anyway.
All that to say, I'm going to be shutting cfgears.com down at the end of the month. I'm in the process of setting up a new VM for my personal stuff and will be turning this one off soon, and I really can't justify setting up CF/MySQL just to run a blog I don't use anymore.
It's been a good run, and I actually enjoy blogging, but the time has come to say "So long, CFgears!"
