Many thanks to those who communicated privately and publicly via the blog in response to my post “the future of the Batch’64 blog”. Most of you prefered the blog to continue. Although the overall interest in the blog has diminished, many of you, who subscribed checked on the content, quite often as indicated by the 20,000 clicks this year. The biggest complaint was that very few are posting comments. At the very least they should respond to their own Birthday greetings! You can also click on the “like’ tab, to let us know you viewed the post.
So, I spent some time in consultation with “word-press” support. Their recommendation was switching to a “Personal Premium” plan with max storage capacity of 13 GB. The new rate is $96 per year ($8 per month)., an amount even I can afford! So it is paid up for 2020. If any of you wish to contribute $5 or10, use the “Paypal” link below. But it is entirely voluntary.
The new site uses the same domain name “sixtyfourbatchcolombo.com” You can save it to your browser as a favorite. and check on the site periodically. The posts are shown on the home page with the latest on top in chronological order. You can also sign in as an EMail follower as before and the site will notify you when a new posting is made. I plan to add some new features to make the blog more interesting, informative and entertaining. For example,
- “Interesting Reads”
- “Travel tips”
- “Photo of the week”
Enjoy the new Blog. Any suggestions and comments are most welcome.
