OK, so I have a habit of starting new blogs from time to time. As I wrote in my About Me page I’ve started 2 History blogs, a couple of photography blogs, and a few personal blogs most of which are still standing. The truth is that earlier tonight I thought to myself, “self, you need to start blogging again”. So I created this blog and as I sat down to write the first post I discovered that I had indeed started several blogs in the past (and not just the ones dealing with my LEGO addiction). Now it was decision time: try to revive a blog that you haven’t posted to in years or start fresh.
Obviously since I am writing this I decided to start fresh. In some ways we are programmed to think in terms of “fresh starts”. It is all a part of that “if at first you don’t succeed” mentality and that is a good thing. In the case of blogging it is like ripping the page out of the typewriter and putting in a new one. (Boy I dated myself with that analogy didn’t I.)
So here we go, Jim’s fresh start at blogging.
