As some of you know, I also write (wrote) for a blog at lr2.com. It was a reasonably popular links blog when I cared to post a few times a day. In the last two years I have all but ignored the site, and traffic has fallen steadily as a result.
Since I am already stretched to write enough content for here, and GeekDad, I have decided to re-purpose lr2.com as a short url site. I realize there are a lot of sites out there that do this, but I think there is room for one more. It should run nearly maintenance free, and eventually provide enough network traffic and ad views to help pay for my web hosting.
So if you need some URLs shortened, give it a shot, and feel free to use them in your emails, IMs, and blog posts.
