- it's nice owning one's own house;
- it keeps all my stuff together in my own control;
- it reduces my dependence on Google; and
- the comment spam on Blogger is driving me up the wall - Google is startlingly bad at managing it, so I get email notifications for all of it and haven't worked out how to filter in my inbox either.
(In order to avoid broken links I won't be deleting content from here, so it should remain as long as Google allows; however no new content will be added and in due course I'll disable commenting.)
