Back to basics blogging

I’ve decided that after having a year off (yes really a year) from writing my blog that it’s time to get back to it again. Guess I might as well tell you what the deal is…

Why did I stop?

It was a complete accident really. I guess life took over. I suppose I lost momentum. I kinda lost interest. I could always use the old “I don’t have time” excuse but seeing as I have a smart(ish)phone and spend a lot of time on trains, that doesn’t really cut it.

Why am I starting again?

I had forgotten what blogging was all about… I left that behind, chasing stats, raising my profile etc. Every blog post was linkbait, socialbait or something equally vulgar… yuck!

Recently I’ve seen several blogs where the author just writes about whatever suits them. No particular focus or direction, just words by someone about stuff that matters to them. Yes. To them. Not Google, not Bing, not but them, the author.

So that’s where I’m at. My phone won’t let me add links with nice anchor text, headings or bullets so you’ll get what you’re given and like it. (Although I can and did come back and edit)

If you don’t like it, I don’t really mind if you go away and don’t come back. I’m writing this for me but thank you for visiting. Please close the door on your way out.
