I got an email today informing me that I started my first Tumblr page 3 years ago. While I no longer post on any of my Tumblr pages, I did find this interesting.
Sometime last year, I consolidated my blogs. The result was this website. When I started blogging, I had a couple of things that I don’t really have now: something to say, and time to say it.
I have looked back on some of my blog entries and realized how long most of them are. You need a lot of free time, not only to write that much, but also to read it. As a writer, you often think quantity over quality. Not to say I think my posts lacked in quality, but I dedicated so much time to writing that it took away from other aspects of my life. One of those things is reading. Work also does that.
Over the Christmas holidays, I found myself with some free time and started reading again. A lot. Since work started again, I haven’t had as much time to read but I have been making more of an effort to do it. Lately, I’ve been reading autobiographies of hockey players.
Today, I just wanted to post some thoughts about my blog. I don’t have as much time to write as I’d like, but I still want to do it. Originally, I intended to write on a regular basis but given my limited time, it’ll be sporadic at best.
My original blog was called Synaptic Wanderings, which was a term I came up with years ago. It referred to random thoughts that the human mind often creates, and my Tumblr page was meant to reflect that. I might post some of these thoughts from time to time, but it probably won’t happen on a regular basis. I’m writing this post while continually wiping cat hair off of the keyboard of my new computer. I don’t know if this keyboard just naturally attracts cat hair or if I’ve just been petting my cats more lately.
Anyway, what I plan to do is to just keep wandering.
