I think it is time to shutter my Flickr group. I think I always knew when it would be time and it is time. Participation has been dwindling and non-existent this month. I know that people can make excuses about not having time, but the whole point of being in an assignment group is to carve out the time to participate. Even if I had entries (and I am sure some will trickle in) I also think that the dwindling participation on Flickr is a factor. It's just time.
Now I need to decide some things. I think I may start a general Houston group so that we have a good place to have discussions. But I'm not sure everyone will move over. I have considered turning AH into the general group, but I want to reserve the right to start the group up again at some future point and it would be hard to do that if it was turned into a general group.
I know I want to do something with Houston photography, but I also have to decide if I even want to do it through Flickr at all. The logical current place would be Facebook, but I refuse to put my photos on Facebook so that's not going to work for me. And I'm not sure what to do with the AH Twitter account. Or maybe I just need to step away and not run anything for a while. It would feel really weird for me, but it may be freeing as well.
