Writers Workshop: Blogging Time

Why yes… yes I do…

My first blog post, which was little more than an announcement that I was going to start blogging, was on January 5, 2012. So this blog has been going for ten years, four months, and 28 days. However, I consider the real start date to be July 1, 2014, the day I started blogging every day, so I’ve been blogging daily for seven years, eleven months, and one day.

That’s a long time. It’s also over 5000 posts, even deducting the ones that I put up before 7/1/14. And I have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

Lately I’ve been joining a bunch of blog hops where the questions allow me to be the smartass I’ve always been. I’ve gone from my posts being a great wall o’ text to having little text and a lot of pictures, GIF’s, and videos.

An old friend dropped by to say hello the other day. He had been in Oliver Twist when he was in high school, and he used to say “Please sir, may I have some more?” all the time. This is for him…

What’s changed a lot has been my whole attitude toward the blog and writing in general. I thought I’d be a great fiction writer (stop me if you’ve heard this), but after a while I realized I don’t like fiction and I suck at it anyway. So I started talking about music a lot, and spending hours on YouTube building playlists to be used here. (They’re all here if you want to watch them, although a few are not mine.) I still rarely address The Great Issues Of Our Time, because I hate writing about politics and damn near every issue these days is tied to politics one way or another. Besides, I like ya’ll too much.

So, that’s the story, morning glory…

  1. I’m so glad you stick around! I always look forward to your take on the writing prompts you do so I am glad when you jump into the blog hop circuit!

    1. I think I misled you. He was in a high school production of the musical. The movie’s probably older than he is.

      My blog is primarily for entertainment, but if I enlighten along the way, I’m especially happy. Thanks!
