So this is the last day we’re ever going to see our Multiply blogs, as the company will shut down its blog platform tomorrow to make way for its e-commerce site.
We’ve managed to download 4,000 photos combined (unfortunately we have no high-resolution backups anymore, because we’re very good just like that).
The oldest ones date back 2008 when we were just starting out in photography. Multiply then was the best—and maybe the only—social photo sharing site available that was free for all. Arguably, it played a big role in encouraging us to sustain this hobby.
We feel a bit sad that it had to be shut down, but we’re also relieved that a lot of our really embarrassing photos—which turned out to be PUBLIC—would now disappear into a black hole never to be seen again.
So we’re posting here some (or a lot) of the photos we salvaged from our respective Multiply accounts, if only to remind us to keep doing what we love best, regardless of platform, free or not.
And they’re all sunsets taken over the years around our hometown, La Union, which has some pretty awesome sunsets you can view from hills or beaches or just about anywhere.
PS., Google, please do not take away Blogger just yet. We’d DIE.
