As I fairly urgently need to look for new ways to earn a living I am going to be going through the various commitments I have and weeding out those that don’t seem worth spending time on.
The first thing to go, I think, should be the ConReporter.com website. There was no interest at all in running reports from the Easter conventions, so I don’t see any point in keeping it going.
There are a number of good reasons for this. Firstly I wasn’t able to put enough effort into making the the experience of using the site seamless and easy. It needed better technology. In addition conventions are starting to get the message, and doing their own online reporting. Finally many more people are now on Twitter, and in particular using it to report on or follow conventions, so there is much less need for the service.
If anyone is interested in the site, or the domain name, please let me know. Otherwise I’ll be taking it down.

I’m sorry to hear that. I very much appreciated having a central website to look for convention reports. The Cover-It Live sessions were the next best thing to being able to attend, particularly the Fannish Inquisitions when you graciously relayed questions in real time from those of us online.
Thanks for the kind words. Of course it will be very difficult for me to do such things from now on. Even if the convention isn’t in the US, I probably won’t be able to afford to go. If Kevin happens to be at a con, and he wants to do such coverage, I can always host it here.
