Sometime around the end of August, beginning of September, my 4th blogiversary made an uneventful appearance.
It came and went.
Meh, life goes on.
(Evidenced by these few fall photos)
I’m noticing many blogger-buddies are entering into their own 4th and 5th years of regular posting; with plenty of re-decorating, re-purposing and de-cluttering of earlier website/blog incarnations. I say: Good for you, guys!
Me? I still can’t figure out how to update my 3.6 WP to 4.8.2 WP without losing precious data that’s supposed to be ‘forever’ on this ole internet superhighway. Case in point: just using that terminology shows how long I’ve been on-line. You know, back when it was only universities and ‘professionals’ that truly surfed the net along with doing all that research, networking and exchange of ideas/ideals. (remember the LuteList, anyone?)
But – this WP.org site still works fine albeit on borrowed time and I’m good with that. Besides, I’m hoping to set up a 100% music website on a non-WP platform; not to worry, this website/blog will still be up and running as long as it doesn’t blip out due to its un-updated status.
Lately, however, that caveat is running a bit thin. Forcing me to consider which way I want my time and energy to be expended on an internet ‘presence’. Not a bad thing really, just annoying.
For the record, this fourth blogiversary post is coincidentally my 200th post. I’m honored to have made many blogger-buddy friends and have enjoyed the subset community of internet connections made during my 4 years here. While blogging has never been the #1 priority of this website/blog, to abandon it completely would be counterintuitive.
So I’m not.
I could write/blog about a lot of things that are equally important for me to expound upon, but should I?
Just as closets and bookshelves need to be cleaned/cleared out to make way for the new – so I’m experiencing a form of ‘writers block’ but one which I think signals a change in focus. Perhaps in accepting this nudge, I’ll be opening up a regular slice of time to finally finish those edits on the accompanying Goat Suite Saga vignettes – making them available to distribute in sync with the release of my Goat Suite.
And then, as a treat, I’ll indulge in developing one of the many great ideas we writers have simmering at the back of our minds and send it off into the blogosphere with the push of the PUBLISH button on my WP.org dashboard.
Until then: I bid belated thanks to all of you for joining me in this four year blogiversary journey!
