It's been a year since FLICKR essentially imploded and became unusable as a place to enjoy my pics and the pics of many friends I met at that site. I have now decided to relocate permanently and bit the bullet and joined ipernity as a paid member to take advantage of all it has to offer.

I'll be re-creating our library of our toy collection, old family photos for family members and the multitude of pictures of our beloved pets. It will be a slow transition because I have over 10,000+ photos to transfer.

Like many, I was driven away sometime last year and came to ipernity. But I waited. I've invested years there. Hoping that the other site would take into account all the user complaints and held out hope that things would be changed or modified. Yes, it's very naive of me to think they would. I missed the site that felt like it was made just for me.

A year later, still horrible, can't see my own things, people I follow posted less. It is now a site made for them.

So here I am. I've been checking up on my ipernity account. Looking at all the features. Agonizing, thinking and finally deciding and deciding big. I took the awesome offer of 2 years plus 2 years free!

Now I am going to build, in painstaking slowness, a site made just for me. <3
