Site’s Going Away

This blog has terrible traffic. I think it’s just a mismatch between lots of different things.

The ebay name declutter69 was just my name. I decided I wanted a different name for the store, eventually, but had already used declutter69 🙁

I had been clutter blogging over on ebay with the name, and then wrote an ebook about decluttering with craigslist with the name. It was thematically consistent the way I saw it, but it wasn’t quite right for the reader.

“declutter69” should be about tossing things out, and organizing.

“zombies of the information society” should be a catalog of items for sale.

Neither should be a blog about reselling.

Duh, isn’t this basic branding 101? I have read instructions about not making this kind of mistake, but I just made it. It seems stupid, but it’s not that hard to fall into this mistake of not seeing things from the customer’s perspective.

So, the blog is going away, soon. Not sure exactly when, but soon.

The free ebook will still be here.
