This is the day that many of us who have been using Dayre as a form of recording our lives, were affected by a piece of sad news. Dayre is shutting down.
I have been using this app since 2014 to record the many mundane activities in my daily life to inform the hubs (most of all) because I don’t want him to miss out on what’s happening at home when he’s at work. It’s also a good way for me to record what I do with the children daily so that I could refer to the home learning activities should I need more ideas.
Then when Dan came along, there were many instances when I felt so frustrated in taking care of the two kids that Dayre is the only place where I could rant safely, away from the judgements of people. Slowly, more readers came to know of my microblog and they become the community that brought me through many down moments. And from this community, I made many online mummy friends and we encouraged one another in this journey.
I blog less on this platform (WordPress) as a result because Dayre is a much easier one to pen my thoughts.
Sadly, this app has to be shut down. I’m not sure if I could have the time to do a backup of the years of posts but then again, is there a need to?
What I’m most regretful is the fact that I didn’t record much of Dan’s development on WordPress.
So today, I explored using another app for microblogging – weblogit- and realised it may not meet my needs.
I guess I should return to this site, the one who has stayed with me throughout my 20s and 30s. I think I can trust WordPress enough.
There may probably be a shift in my writing style but ultimately, I just want to record memories, like I’ve always wanted to do so from the very beginning.
So here’s me, back to blogging again.
