Here I go, blogging yet again.
As of this writing, the site isn’t even functioning properly. I belong to twice as many social networks as I made icons for, none of the website links in my portfolio work any more, and it looks terrible on a smartphone.
On New Year’s Day, I had this odd idea that I’d start a daily video blog (vlog) on YouTube. Not for fame and fortune; I’m too old for that. I have an opinion on nearly everything happening today, or at least the things I hear about, and I thought that if you could put all of mine together, you’d get to know me, and you’d see a sensible and sane pattern. And that one of my many interests will rise above the others, or maybe a few of my interests will sort of mash together, and I’ll know better what to blog about.
However, the medium of speaking isn’t my best. I don’t mind the sound of my voice, or my non-mirror image. And I like video. I’m just a crappy speaker. I wasn’t always. I may get better.
In the meantime, I’ll be blogging. Believe me, as odd as this post may sound, especially to me in a year or so, it’s Shakespeare compared to my video debut, which, before you ask, I erased immediately.
So once I crashed and burned on 1/1, I shelved the plan for a few weeks. But I’d gathered all these ideas, and had no outlet for them. That’s not quite true: I’d have a good idea for a post, and then remember that I killed the vlog. So the idea would evaporate, and a minute later I’d forget I even had an idea.
As the guy said, “Quitting smoking is easy. I’ve done it hundreds of times.” Which pleases his doctor, because quitting smoking hundreds of times adds up to a lot less smoke.
I’ll be resuming blogging hundreds of times, starting now.
