I was so close. Really. I cancelled my website hosting subscription. It would have dropped the domain name (theadventuredogblog.com) and put it on a free wix generic domain. I wanted to keep the content available for people to use. The trail guides, the campsite guides. I think those are useful to fellow adventurers.
But the pressure was just really getting to me. I needed a break, and to give myself permission to actually step away. To cut ties.
I've since renewed my subscription, and this website will not change! :)
But let me tell you about what goes on behind the scenes.
As you know, and I hope appreciate, this website functions WITHOUT any ads, affiliate marketing, propaganda, or other BS that most other blogs in this world contain. That is just not me.
I pay my own money, out of my own pocket, to run and operate this blog. It's not free. I have to pay to own the domain name (theadventuredogblog.com) and I have to pay for the website to exist. Just that is about $200 per year. Just for fun. Just so this can exist.
And I am happy to do so! I have done so for almost two full years now. I think passion projects should continue no matter what.
But it is definitely not jus
