An explanation.

So according to my archives, there was a grand total of 1 (yesΒ one) post for the whole of 2019. Hmm. That’s quite pathetic πŸ˜‰

It wasn’t that 2019 was an uneventful year, on the contrary it was action-packed with plenty of happy, sad, exciting (and boring) happenings.

Inspiration seemed to pass me by last year :/

I started this way back in 2011 (seems an eternity ago now) and have managed a paltry 263 posts (well 264 including this one). I have lost count of the number of themes I’ve taken into use, only to discard them some time later… some of the themes lasted a mere 24 hours. In fact, over the last day I have managed to adopt and then discard two new themes before settling on the current one (Twenty Eleven if you are interested). This time however I am taking the time to learn the theme properly, so the page / blog might be a bit on the wobbly side for a few days while I iron out the kinks. WordPress have also added in a new editor that needs some getting used to πŸ˜‰

Obviously my relationship with the blog is not the same as it was back in 2011. I certainly need to improve my photography skills. The other area that needs work is determining the subject matter, tone and frequency of posts. Not just here but also on the accompanying Facebook page. Twitter / Instagram are a little separate because I like to use them a little more impulsively than the blog πŸ˜€

Working for myself I sometimes feel like I a lack a certain sense of discipline or urgency, especially if it isn’t work related. So getting my routines back on track is also important.

No better time or place to get started than here and now!

How do you reboot? Where do you find your inspiration?

A national treasure, all year round!

This is just a little teaser, I’ll share my love of Leunig with you later in the week.

It’s already 2014 where I am – if you’re still waiting for the countdown, I hope your New Year brings great joy.
