Five months ago , when I decided to close down my blog, I was certain that it was for keeps. Writing was not as much fun as it used to be and , besides, the blog seemed irrelevant. In the 2-1/2 years since I started blogging , I had seen the number of blogs on WordPress increase astronomically from 770,000 to almost 5 million. ” What did one more or one less mean ?” , I thought to myself , as I penned my ” last” post .
What I hadn’t counted on was how much I would miss the act of writing , because miss it I certainly did. Not at first. At first , there was a feeling of freedom but , after a couple of months , I couldn’t resist checking to see how the blog was faring. I was gratified to see that it was still garnering 30-35 hits a day and a couple of readers even commented that they missed it. From then, it was only a matter of time before I decided to unretire , my retirement having lasted all of 5 months. At least it was longer than Jay Leno’s !
So, here I am , back again writing about things that interest me and which I hope are fun, for you and me. Even though I do write primarily for myself, feedback is always welcome ( whether you agree or disagree with me ) as long as it is civil.
Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous 2010.
