Daytonology is...

Jeffrey, our 'humble host', I agree with the comments in your final post.

You have invested tons of time and effort to your posts, which has neither gone unnoticed nor unappreciated. There's quite a few people who have been engaged by your take on this city, and I sincerely think that this blog can live on.

Not to sound too cheesy, but your blog is important in some small way, and much like the city you've called home, it has it's own past, present, and as long as there's someone left who stumbles upon it, a future.

I don't think you should pull the plug on this blog; that's not how the internet works. Instead, just let it be - wordpress certainly won't mind.

Hopefully this helps convince you to let this blog turn into an archive instead of letting it disappear. If the city of dayton had decided to 'pull the plug' on it's own history, you wouldn't have had much to type about, would you? :)

- yer humble readers

Bummer about the closing. I agree that you shouldn't delete the blog's contents from the Intertubes but rather should leave them for people to stumble across. Your work has resulted in lots of good information!

I's also like to say that I am sad to see this blog go. It was a connection to a city that still means a lot to me despite being very far away now. I also want to put in my recomendations for archiving the contents somehow, especially the research pieces. Kind of ironic in a way that my only dayton blog is closing.

Good luck, Jeff, I really learned a lot and it was fun while it laster.

Please leave it up as a great, and unique, reference source...

Jeff - I would be interested in keeping the Daytonology archive alive. If you would like me to pick up the hosting drop me a line. Do you know how much space it uses?

Greg Hunter said...

Sorry you are leaving, but it is understood. Thanks for the herculean effort!

Blog posts are often stumbled upon months or years after they're written. I don't understand why you'd want to delete all this research rather than just leave it published online for the benefit of others down the line. I only just discovered your blog a few months ago and went back through and read the old posts for hours. I was enthralled; so much fascinating reading, maps & photos of interest to current & former Dayton residents like me.

Just because you don't want to update it anymore isn't a reason to delete it. Believe me, you have so many more readers & fans than those who were following your posts at the time you were originally writing them! Please don't hit the delete button.

Jeff,

Let me just say that this is one of the absolute top blogs out there. Extremely well researched and informed. I learned something every time I read an article.

I can certainly understand that you'd close it down though. Every blog has a certain life span. They aren't really meant to go on forever, I think. And frankly, a talent like you is wasted on Dayton.

Since there's no penalty to leaving the site up forever, I'd second the chorus of those suggestion you do so. I'd love to get an Atom export (available through Blogger) for my own personal archives if you wouldn't mind providing.

Thanks for doing all this wonderful work. And best wishes in all your future endeavors.

Aaron.

Indeed, please do not delete Daytonology. I've learned so much reading this blog and it would be a shame if it just disappeared.

John Morris said...

Yes, I have to admit to only recently finding this blog but already there are things I would like to refer to and link to.

Is there a particular personal reason you are choosing to hit the delete button

Whelp, here it is early 2010 and this excellent blog is still online.

I hope that Jeffrey had a change of heart and has decided to let it remain, even if he has stopped contributing to it.

I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any
browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog
readers have complained about my blog not operating
correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

Given all that wwe have discussed above, Vo - IP is cnsidered the future of communication. Using

simply upgrade or improve on exiting network capabilities.

As a result, you are much more likely to have impulse buys online than in a brick and mortar store.

While we more than likely will have a lot of books in our house to look
at, chances are we aree now reading those same books
online. Most people do not truly understand the need for a high-speed Internet connection. However, aas the
technology continued to get better and smaller, satellite televisaion is now seen as a viable competitor to

This can save you a great deal of money, especially if the internet plan is aimed

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
off topic but I had to tell someone!
