I started this blog last December 12. The idea was to post something every day for a year. So, as of today, I have 10 days to go.
Mostly, I just wanted to see if I could do something (other than essentials, like breathing) every day for a year. I start a lot of things and don’t finish them. This blog was as much about finishing something over an extended period of time as it was about anything else in particular.
It was also a chance to try on a few new kinds of writing. Most of September was taken up with a Writing 101 course. I experimented with a variety of writing prompts. It’s been a good run.
As things wind down here, I’ve started clearing out cobwebs at my old blog, iCaspar. I’ve posted on it only a few times over the last year. Last time was the day after my birthday. Over the last couple days I’ve finished up a new custom theme for it. (Well, finished may be saying too much — these things are never really finished — but it’s finished enough to have people looking at.) I’ve removed many of the old posts. I may remove more of them. All this in preparation for moving back into my old digs.
I won’t be posting every day on iCaspar. My intention is to spend more time on posts rather than just shooting off any old thing that comes to mind. Quality over quantity.
Over the year, in spite of not having promoted the blog or sharing it widely in the usual places (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) I’ve managed to garner a smattering of more-or-less regular readers (other than my wife and my mum) and even a few commenters. If you’re one of them, you have my thanks and appreciation for your support. (And of course I appreciate my wife and my mum, too.) I hope you’ll continue to follow along on iCaspar.
Thanks again. See you tomorrow, and for the next 10 days here, and then in whatever lies beyond.
