So, perhaps inevitably, I failed miserably at blogging every day in September.
Actually, I take that back. It wasn't a 'miserable' failure - I averaged one post every two days overall. Most of which I count as proper content. Best I've managed for a long time!
I've been blogging for many years now - on this domain and previous ones - and what I use it for has changed hugely over that time. I remember when "weblog" was still a brand new word.
I've gone from geeky updates as I taught myself coding/websites, to comments on news/current events, to general stressed out venting about life, the universe, and everything. (only a small proportion of my vast archives are currently public, haha)
Then facebook came along and I found myself using that for day to day updates, because it was more convenient and all my friends were already there.
Over the last few years I've settled into a lifestyle with several time consuming hobbies, meaning priorities have changed and website updates have got less frequent. And more delayed, because I was finding myself held up by a backlog of photos.
Photo galleries are currently on hold, partly because the system I wrote many years ago isn't great any more, but mostly because it's just too time consuming to try and sort through all the pictures I take. Also time consuming (and boring?) for someone to click through them all...
Trying to post something daily was tough. And not just because of a lack of spare time! I had no desire to resort to "blogging for the sake of blogging" and fill my database with pointless posts about what my favourite flavour of crisps is. I mean, I posted before and after photos of tidying my desk ffs. Definite low point.
So, my website focus for the time being is a bit more "lifestyle". No point taking millions of pictures of the places I visit and things I do if I'm not even trying to share them with the world
