Dear Admins i will no longer psot on this site after September 30th if things don't change.

September 30, 2020

I informed the admins via email, and now via this post that without communication or fixes (or both), I was no longer going to post on this site. I am not sure that impacts them or, for that matter, anyone. But that is my deadline. It is not a line in the sand; it is hard and fast.

I am going to split up my writing in the future anyway. My philosophical posts are going on Hubpages. I find a better audience there any way for that type of position. I’ve moved the Wander Project to project Blue-fire for the short term; I don’t know if I will stay there. It has many exciting features, but it isn’t as open as the community here is.

I am not quitting, and if the comments are fixed, I will return and clean up my remarks. But at this point, I am very disappointed in the admin team; it doesn’t matter what you are trying to do, communicate. The one thing I do enjoy about Project BlueFire is the admin team shares information every single day. It doesn’t take a great effort to do that.

I am also profoundly concerned about the content allowed on this site now. I saw that there were three approved posts on Friday. But they are predominantly Adsense driven posts. That makes me said.

A friend of mine once said this: “know what you need when you go looking.” Part of why I write, why I started as a poet is that I don’t always know what I am looking for. Sometimes the things I need, the things that I want are very different from those available to me. Based on that, I struggle with the process of reconciliation (what I wanted, what I see, and in the end, what is truly there). In that discussion, I find myself torn often. My goal for writing is to break my hand up now—philosophical pieces on HubPages. Wander project on BlueFire, and I am going back to technical blogs here on this site. It is a little bifurcated for now, but it is the best I can do.

  1. I have not posted here for over a year now, except maybe once on a re-visit to see if there were any changes, there were not.
    As I have never posted for money, the issue of waiting days, at some points over a week, for content, (much was time-critical) to be allowed on the site drove me away, as such time-critical posts were, by then, no longer valid.
    Then to see poor and irrelevant content with little or no value swamping any creative and engaging production sent me packing.
    Plus, as you say, the lack of any communication from the owners or admin.
    The general consensus from the internet is now Virily is nothing but a dumping ground for valueless drivel and no serious blogger or content creator is using this platform.

  2. I took a break from here since my pending posts were not going through anyway. Happy to see that they are up now.

    Sad to see you go, but the issues just never change here. Sad for sure. I’m not sure if I’ll hang around here or not. Lots going on here so my time is already limited.
