Ten days ago or so I posted about the difficulties I had maintaining this blog and the changes I was going to implement. I said
“What will remain the same?
Whenever I can I’ll post “Music in the Morning” and “Sunday Morning Coffee”. At least this will keep a few passing through the doors to see how I am (the blog is).
The same goes for Trafigura.
Occasionally something else - for example poetry - might attract me.
If this is the same what will be different?
I will not post anything personal.
If I have nothing to post I will not go looking.
I will read blogs on Google Reader but visit only rarely and comment less often.
I will not obsess about my paltry stats.”
Thereafter I hit a productive spell of blogging but now I have settled into what I expect will be the on-going pattern: predominantly music posts interspersed with the occasional post on other subjects.
I have noticed that blogging, in general, is in a dip – at least those blogs I read. There are far fewer posts. It’s as though blogging has had its day as a mass medium and we are in a phase where numbers drop and only those hardy souls and those who have massive readership keep going.
I am in neither of those groups ….. but I hope to keep going. After about twenty years where music listening wasn’t even a peripheral interest I now find that music is hugely important to me. I love music, I love finding music I love, I love truly listening to music, I love what music does for me and I love sharing my music.
As is normal for me I had hoped that my regular music posts - “Music in the Morning” and “Sunday Morning Coffee” – would attract more listeners but there are a small number who listen in most days and every Sunday and a steady stream find the posts through Google. I appreciate all who visit.
The point of this post?
I rather wandered, didn’t I? I meant to say that the last few days blogging is probably how my blog will be for a while and to ask that readers not forget about me.
