Okay there was a rather weak attempt a couple of weeks back to get back into blogging but today marks a rather large milestone in my life. Rather than being downcast about reaching my half century I have decided to declare it as a time of new beginnings. They aren’t resolutions or indeed any kind of bucket list more a mental note of things I keep promising myself but never quiet finding the time to realise. Neither does the list have any kind of ranking but blogging is firmly on it so today begins a return to regular blogging.
I think over the past year blogging has changed quite markedly. It would appear that many of those who once blogged often have now either stopped blogging or now blog only occasionally. I also think that the demise of Goggle Reader has had an impact on the reading of blogs, many people have struggled to find a replacement that suits them and consequently have stopped reading them altogether.
So is this really the time to begin blogging again, wouldn’t I be better using my time in some other way? Well I think that blogging has a future but the future might be very different from the past and maybe what I need to do is invest sometime into just what that future might be.
