Why I Returned

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.

Why?

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?

Brook.

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.

I’m tumbling

I have decided to give my Tumblr blog some much needed attention. This is not to say goodbye to this blog but giving me another medium to express myself. I use a lot of social media and using Tumblr is just another creative tool to help express myself.

I will try and return to this blog to update my thoughts and hijinx so again this is not goodbye but a see you later.

My Tumblr is as follows: http://thenycguy74.tumblr.com

Hope you give me a shot there as you have here 😊. Life continues!

Hello Goodbye/Ch-ch-changes

Moving to a new office brings to mind the lyrics to two classic songs:

“I don’t know why you say “Goodbye”, I say “Hello, hello, hello”.
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello.”

“Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
(Turn and face the stranger)
Ch-ch-Changes
Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
(Turn and face the stranger)
Ch-ch-Changes
Pretty soon you’re gonna get
a little older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can’t trace time”

New adventures await at the new place.
