another year of bloggingPosted: January 4, 2016
So, here it is, the first Monday of the new year 2016 and I begin another week and another year of blogging. I’m not exactly sure how long I have been writing my blog. That is lost in the mists of time, as I am now on my third blogging platform. But I would have to say that my blog must go back to 2002 or 2003.
There was a time when I was not diligent about updating my blog, but for the last several years I have made a point of publishing five entries a week. Interestingly, I originally conceived of my blog as a forum to reflect on religion and spirituality, and my blog’s title was “Thoughts on Spirituality, Liturgy, & Religion.” I found that eventually, though, I was writing on a much wider range of topics, and dropped that in favor of simply “Csquared Thoughts.” More recently, I changed the title to “My Point Being,” which I rather like. I now even have a domain name to match.
One of the nice things about being on the WordPress platform is that other WordPress bloggers can Like my posts. What I find is that when I write about food, the food bloggers like my posts. When I write about books, the book bloggers like my posts. When I write about language, the language bloggers like my posts. That’s really nice, and it’s flattering. But then they follow my blog, and I get concerned that I will disappoint them, as I do write about those topics, but not every day. I may go several weeks without blogging on one of those subjects.
I blog about what is on my mind. I can only write about what is of interest to me. I can’t please everyone, so I have to please myself.
In any case, here’s to another year of blogging. I hope you’ll come along with me, and with any luck some of what pleases me will please you too.
