It has been a year and one half since I wrote on WordPress. During that time I spent time microblogging on Tumblr. The experience has been good and I won’t stop what I post there but I had to return.
I miss writing.
Tumblr has many pros especially the ease of posting pictures and re blogging. A couple of clicks and my social media footprint grew a little larger. Still something was missing.
I felt detached from the process. Again, it was just a few clicks. I didn’t have to think deeply. I posted pictures of places and food using Instagram to link to Tumblr but that was it. It was mindless thoughtless sharing for me. I didn’t feel creative. Just passing some part of my life along that the general public may or may not be interested in.
I had thought of returning to WordPress but why now?
Not that love for someone swayed me but it was that she finally committed to blogging and when I told her I haven’t done much lamented my giving up my WordPress blog. She was probably my only fan but that’s cause she is heavily biased. That comment made me think. Why wasn’t I blogging? The creative juices are still there and I write for myself so I can see my history warts and all.
I realized it was the medium I was using versus the one I used. WordPress has no frills and I don’t pay for the upgrade cause my writing is not Vonnegut. It is a simple was for me to express myself.
So I have returned. Who knows for how long but let’s see where this takes me. So…
Once again, welcome to my world.
