I can't not blog. It's one of the few things I did in 'the old life' that I can still do now. Blogging is fun and doesn't cost any money. It's a perfect hobby, if you think about it.
Not belonging to Facebook and Twitter really hurts my traffic. That's how I got my blog out there. Whenever I'd post a link to my blog I would get up to 50 hits on a new post. Without it... maybe 3 if I'm lucky. You all received this special inaugural post in your inboxes because you are people that I know read my blog from time to time and I had your email addresses on hand. You can be taken off the mailing list at any time. However, don't be afraid to pass on the good word about me being back in business with my blog.
I'm always surprised when people tell me that they read my blog. People I never expected read it. They tell me they like it and to keep it up and I'm like, okay! Thumbs up! That's a good enough reason for me to start writing again.
So, it's the same shit, just in a different blog.
