I’ve been missing blogging – missing having a reason to get my thoughts and reactions to life down in writing where I can see them, and, yes, missing sharing them.
I have surprised myself by how little I have been missing social media. I miss the connection it affords with my friends around the world, but I haven’t missed the “indignation engine” that it has mostly become.
I have been writing in my personal diary, Day One, but there is less reason to do so when the only person reading it is going to be some future me.
So I’ve decided to scratch the itch again and to do so regularly. Not as some sort of New Year’s resolution that I can fail to sustain beyond February, but in an attempt to rediscover the joys of blogging and to reach out to the many people around the world that I am fortunate to know.
[I am going to experiment with sharing these posts on the social media platforms as a means of reaching out but will hope to focus any ensuing conversation on the blog itself]
