My 200th Blog Post
This just snuck up on me. I didn't realise that today's post would be my 2ooth! I was just going to write a bit about my friends from High School.
200 posts? Have I reallyspewed out that much rubbish?
That's a lot of writing and without a doubt, would make an impressive word count. Hell, I'd have a novel by now if I stuck exclusively to one topic.
I originally started blogging here because my pal, Purplesimon, suggested that it was a good way to plumb one's creativity and to get some writing out. So my intention was to write up my short stories and stick them up on the web.
I have written fewer stories and more vignettes, reviews, bits of rubbish and my ficiton blog, Tastes Like Llama, has been sadly neglected. At some point during this year, I turned into a blogging maniac. And sadly, these have been neglected too.
My creative energy has not been quite the same since July. Not sure why. I reckon that I have been joining several other bloggers in wondering what the purpose of my own blog should be. Quite a few people, like Chris, have changed their approach, while others, like Purplesimon, have elected to leave the blogosphere for the time being.
Having 200 posts up here has made me question my whole approach to blogging. I have several blogs, which I have not been able to update as regularly as I would like. I am thinking of getting rid of one or two, perhaps consolodating some... Not sure. But I do think a new approach for 2007 would be in order. Not sure what, though.
I like this particular blog because it is personal and it has all my reviews on it. I am going to have to have a serious think about the rest.
In the meantime, enjoy! Tomorrow we'll resume the regular service, with my third voted for piece: High School Friends.
