Since 2008, I've been sharing photos on the social media website called ipernity. It's the only social media site that I use for sharing things, like photos and my blog. But, last year, I set-up a new blog, here at www.virtualskyhomestead.com, because there was talk that there was a very real possibility that ipernity would be shutting down.
As of December, of 2016, an official announcement from the ipernity staff stated that, due to lack of funding, the website would be closing at the end of January, 2017, unless a major investor for the site was found.
Many people, who use ipernity, began looking for alternative photo sharing sites, like Facebook and Flickr. But, I will not use those sites and have pretty much decided that I would no longer use any public sharing sites. If I was going to share photos, in the event that ipernity does shut down, I would do it on my own terms. This is why I have created this Gallery site on my Virutalskyhomestead domain.
Doing it this way, I know that I will have complete control over my content and the cost of hosting such a site is actually less than what I was paying ipernity for my club membership.
So, I hope you like the new gallery and enjoy your visit.
