All The Comments and Discussions Have Gone Missing!

As someone who has used Google+ as a primary channel of social media distributions for the posts made on this blog, it was a hard decision to unlink the social platform from all of this content. But the recent news of Google+ being shut down didn't leave much of a choice.

Sadly, these transitions are not as easy as they seem. The combined influence of removing Google+ and linking a new domain (www.jerryrock.com) means that none of the existing comments on individual posts will show up, leaving behind pages with zero interaction between the writer and the readers.

We lost in excess of 500 comments and many wise words in between. It's upsetting because comments add great value to any piece of content and those discussions help build a sense of community and togetherness between the individual readers.

In hindsight, better decisions could have been made with regards to the comment system. However, it's apparent that a fresh start is the best way to go and be more welcoming to new readers.

With a collection of a little over 100 individual posts, a significant portion of which are long reads, I invite existing and new readers to chip in with their thoughts, questions, and suggestions to help improve the content quality and deliver a better reading experience to each and every one of you.

I've personally experienced many highs and lows in my time writing through this channel and writing continues to be a joyous activity for me and I expect to write more useful, exciting and entertaining content for you.

Thanks for the read!
