A Year old Today
This ‘umble blog set sail on blogging seas a year ago today. Maybe it tells you more about how I spend Xmas or maybe that time presented me with an ideal opportunity to start something new. I’ve blogged in other places but this has been the first blog that’s had an intentionally loose remit which is probably why I haven’t abandoned it like some others in the past.
I’d like to thank all of the other passing ships that have stopped off for a while to sample some of the content especially those that leave comments, and suggestions.I’ve got a shallow kind of buzz from the times when some of my comments on current affairs have been linked to by some old media websites including Le Monde (I nearly fainted), Channel 4 news (I know) and more recently CNN Europe (say wha…). It just goes to show how much the old media reaches out into the blogosphere for comment and complimentary content.
I’ve been especially pleased to find an outlet for the ongoing digitisation of a legacy tape archive though I didn’t really make a dent in that area until June and hope to get back to adding to it over this Xmas period (It’s amazing that analogue tapes that are over 25 years old play perfectly when I can’t even play DVD’s burned a few months ago.Progress?)
No doubt blogs and blogging will continue to evolve, diversify and mutate and while I can still find things do get enthused, annoyed or passionate about then I’ll probably pursue an outlet to record my thoughts in one way or another.It’s always an added bonus if others stop by and appreciate any public content.
Learning Curve Continues
Looking back over what I’ve posted over the last 12 months has reminded me of the large amount of content subject that I wanted to write about but didn’t so note to self: must do better. It’s been a good learning curve and I’m still learning, revising and refining.
Here’s to year two.
I’ve made a PDF of some of the things I feel I’ve learned in here blogging over the past 12 months together with the tools I’ve used so please feel free to download from here.
