Lately, I’ve been immersed in deep thought and have come to many conclusions about my life and my future. Take this personal blog for example, I thoroughly enjoy having it readily available to express myself, but it takes money to keep it alive on the internet, which is acceptable as long as I have cash to pay for it. However, what happens when I die? Who is going to be financially responsible for this colorful website and renew its StevenGoth.com address from GoDaddy.com and pay the hosting fees to Dreamhost.com? Sadly, this blog could disappear forever.
I made the decision to pay for my personal website because it’s easier to control and easier to be creative with its design and content, but now I’m wondering if all this self-indulgent “Steve” stuff should be posted on a free social media site that might outlast my ability to pay, rather than risk having my random words and pictures, along with the comments written by friends, being exiled into oblivion.
You see, I have no children to carry on and share the memory of me, so everything that I am in this lifetime can only be remembered through my own words and art. That is not a comforting thought for someone who is trying to make sense of his life and leave behind a tiny moment to show the world he was actually there.
Perhaps I am over-thinking again, because in the end (the big super nova explosion end), everything on earth will disappear anyway. Here are my personal websites that will be violently destroyed during the Armageddon; Eyeronics.com, Posterhood.com, Allynsville.com and StevenGoth.com
