It's decision time

I have been 'scooping' industrial heritage related news on this page (and 'grain elevators' on another) for nearly seven years, and also posting a lot of it to https://www.facebook.com/TICCIH/
But the sad reality is that I'm not at all convinced it's worthwhile. I can't even see how many posts I've made, though they come to 90 pages). There are so few page views here, and hardly anybody I ever speaks to has heard of Scoop.it. So - if I stop updating this, will anybody notice? If you are one of those who will, please let me know.
