Previously I revealed that this blog was "closed"... but everything can't just come to a halt that quickly. Employees are cleaning out their desks and bills are still arriving for the rent and utilities on the rented office space.
After the last employee leaves I'll still be here. I need to open the doors for, and supervise the movers who are coming later this week to pick up the rented office equipment... computers, desks, photocopiers, etc. After that I'll turn the keys over to the landlord and that will be that.
Yes, I had high hopes when this site was launched, but, as everyone knows, the blogger Octopus dropped the hammer and put an end to the hopes and dreams of me and my employees. Not everyone was fired, however. Some of my authors were transferred over to RNUSA, my other blog that has been in existence for some time.
I had hoped to close down RNUSA and transition all discussion over to this blog, but Octopus did not approve, and therefore RNUSA will continue while LLIN is the one that will be closed.
In this matter I have no choice, as when Octo speaks I must listen. I did try to rebuff him when he first suggested that this blog had to go, but to no avail. Octo was EXTREMELY insistent that RNUSA could remain, but that LLIN had to be shut down.
Given the time and money I've put into developing this site, however, I am looking into the possibility of selling it in order to recoup some of my costs. It is therefore possible that LLIN might return under new management.
If that happens - and I want to be extremely clear about this - LLIN will no longer be affiliated with RNUSA in any way what-so-ever. I say this in case of any objections from Octo. And I don't know why there should be any, given that the site UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT will be the same as any other new site (except the setup and layout will already be done).
I will therefore leave this post up for a few days before looking for a buyer. If Octo decides that the site cannot be sold I will, of course, adhere to his wishes. But he must make them known by the end of the week. Once the site is sold I will have no control over it what-so-ever.
