Two years ago this blog was positively thriving. Between November 2017 and May 2018, I wrote a post everyday for 200 consecutive days.
I write a lot less these days.
I would like to write more, but the time to do so is rather less available.
Because my 19-month old daughter has been occupying a lot of that time.
I could, and probably should, write about her. She certainly gives me enough material and indeed I do plan to write about some of her exploits in the near future.
Much as I love her however, this blog has always been primarily about me. It’s my little space on the internet for my own little brand of narcissism.
But it’s no good having a blog if you never actually, y’know, blog.
So I need to start producing more content.
This is my second post in two days, so I’m heading in the right direction, but I’d need to produce another 198 to match my record.
I feel that may be stretch at the moment.
But part of how I achieved that previous double century was by taking part in blogging challenges and adhering to specific themes.
And one such challenge was the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. Which does exactly what it says on the tin.
In April 2018 I wrote about my favourite cartoons from the eighties, because for me the eighties was all about watching cartoons.
This year I thought I might look at another period of my life. The ensuing decade in fact, when my life was less about cartoons (although obviously still a bit about cartoons) and more about music. Mostly listening to music if I’m honest, as I have nothing in the way of actual musical ability. I did own a guitar in the nineties but I couldn’t play it very well. I believed I might get good at playing the guitar and go on to be an international rock star.
I did not.
But I did listen to a lot of bands.
I also went to a lot of gigs.
So this year’s A-Z challenge will be entitled:
James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Albums That He Liked To Listen To When He Was Young
Tune in on April 1st to see which indie album beginning with A that I liked to listen to when I was young.
