Here we are once again. It’s Hogmanay, or New Year’s Eve for those of you not of a Scottish persuasion. It doesn’t seem that long ago since the last one. Time seems to fly ever more quickly the older I become.
My blogging has been very light, lately. I’ve had plenty to say, but recently I’ve found it really difficult to get the thoughts out onto the page and arrange them into some sensible order, without turning into a shouty person at the same time. Everyone has good days and bad days, but I’ve had more of the latter this year, and I didn’t want to turn my blog into some kind of depressive rant.
The Post-a-day initiative failed, miserably! It was a good idea in theory, but in practice I found it very hard to do. On days when I had little to say, I felt obliged to publish something, but the last thing I wanted to do was for the blog to become one big long list of status updates. I have Twitter and Facebook for that. I thought perhaps switching to doing a post-a-week would be better, but even then, it became a chore.
While my blogging may have declined, I’ve been more active elsewhere. I’ve been a lot more active on Twitter, and this was also the year that Google+ appeared. I’m not quite sure where I’m going with that one – I post occasionally, and I’ve had a couple of really interesting discussions there too. Then there’s Facebook, too. Perhaps I should have one place where I can bring it all together. Who knows?
So, what about 2012? No promises! Let’s just see how it goes, eh?
