Technomadia is gone!
« on: October 18, 2012, 11:32:07 PM »
FYI, As of tonite, Chris & Cherie have pulled their website/blog: www.technomadia.com.    :o

I'll let them follow-up with why. . .

Sad.

I sure don't like the sound of this. I hope they're OK.

They are active on their Facebook page still.... I can't imagine this is a bad thing?!? Maybe a new website is being planned?

Thanks RJ and others who have left positive support.

Here's the statement we just posted:

Yes.. our blog is down. Yes.. it is intentional. The crux of the feelings is that the blog has become bigger and gone off in a direction that just wasn't feeling ... right.. to us. We are ok, and we will take some time to figure out what our online presence path forward is from here.

Cherie & Chris,

There was much useful and resourceful information on your Blog that I would regularly reference.  I am hoping that the content would still be searchable if you decide to start up a new blog/website.

I already miss it.

I hope that a new website comes together that is twice as good as the last.

How true that is!  You missed the article on my blog about how I repainted my steering wheel knob and finally cured that ugly rash under my right armpit!

BCO, have you checked to see if the rash doesn't have its own Facebook page?

Returning to the topic though.  I would be a lot too lazy to keep up a blog, and there are lots of bloggers that should be more lazy.  However, it is really great when someone who has knowledge and experience to pass on takes the time to do it.  Although I have not followed Chris and Cherie's work, from comments others have made, it appears they did a good job.  Electric Sean is another serious man with a blog that many find useful.
