In terms of the future of weblogs.asp.net, it’s time to start looking for an exit strategy as Microsoft doesn’t seem to invest any resources. I doubt they will switch it off without notice as long as Scott Guthrie is on the same platform, but I have to find a way (and the time) to move my content when it becomes necessary.
In terms of motivation: It’s still there. My goal remains to write at least one blog post per month as long as time permits and I as long as I have something (more or less) interesting to tell.
