Blogging. It’s just like writing a personal diary post every day innit. That was a big New Year’s Resolution thing when I was a teen. We all bought diaries and were all going to write a page everyday. No probs. Girls seemed to be more diligent at this it has to be said. They liked to write about who they were dating and ‘how they were ‘feeling’. The boys knew this of course and were always desperate to read about who ‘Maude’ was dating and “How far?” she had gone and with whom. 1 holding hands, 2 a kiss, 3 upstairs outside etc. One of my cohort bought a diary with a padlock. The hunt for the key…..! I wonder if she still has it (them)? I digress. So first week in January off we go, every evening we are going to write a page. Then there are a few busy days, so no entries. Then we sit down to pull it back. Maybe we’ve made a few notes along the way, teens soon forget yesterday’s drama ( And this in 1965 remember. No mobile phones, no social media ). You can’t remember what you did this morning at that age, let alone last Tuesday! You chew your pencil. Do you write the current stuff and leave the catch up for another day ? Do you fill the gaps in first? You prevaricate. Maybe nothing happens at all and two days later the situation is even worse. And then it goes tits up, falls apart and it never happens. You give up. FAILURE!
Well i’ve been like that with this blog. I’ve been trying to understand how WordPress works ( Come on you lot I spent $88 on the pro version so you would get to see something sexy. Cut me some slack ), I’ve not been well and so the days roll by and there are no posts. I sense the diary syndrome kicking in. On the plus side i’ve been out roving reportering so I have loads of photo albums in the bag.
I want this blog to to be EPIC, SEXY & a compelling read. If I go back to the beginning with the narrative ( which is what I want to do ) do I have to hold off posting the photo albums to keep the sequence in order ? Can I switch blog posts around after I have published them #noidea
So yesterday I decided it was all or nothing. I had to post something. So WHOOSH I posted a slew of ( rather raw looking ) photo albums in the hope that it would hold your interest. Now I am starting to write text. Maybe the posts won’t follow in date order but does it matter? My next written post will be about my rail journey from London to Valencia. I’m gonna dip in and out and write about the things that have happened to me in the last 17days. What possessions have I lost so far? ( I have form here.. ) What are those women siting under parasols on the side of the N322 doing ? What’s the latest goss on the suspension of the Calpe-Denia railway? What is the best recipe for Pan con tomate ?
Are my tennis coaches hot?
Hang in there, I’m just gonna write about what I want, when I want, depending on how the mood takes me. I’m now out of the starting blocks and on a roll.
COME ON TIM
