Hello dear readers. After announcing that I would be having a break from blogging just over a week ago, I’m now announcing my return. This does presuppose that anyone cares, which is, perhaps, too great an assumption all things considered.
On the other hand, if I didn’t announce my return then how would anyone know I’d even been away and thus how would they know to celebrate my return? It’s a genuine conundrum.
Anyway, whether this news is of consequence or not, I have returned to my blog.
There is a part of me that would delight in the irony of writing a post announcing my return, only for me then to disappear for another week. But sadly that is not my intention on this occasion.
I do, however, fully intend to post less often than the daily blogging schedule I had been maintaining for the 365 consecutive days I achieved prior to my recent hiatus. And I’m going to reinforce that message by posting every day for the entirety of April.
Because, I have decided, for no good reason, to do what I did last April, and participate in the annual A-Z blogging challenge.
Last year I wrote mainly about 90s music. When I started that challenge I was under the impression that most of the music I like is from the 90s. I’ve always assumed that the noughties was a barren wasteland for me in terms of music, but in the wake of last year’s opus, I did notionally try to put together an A-Z of albums that I like from that decade. And I found it surprisingly easy. It turns out that I like a lot of music from the noughties. I have had to cheat a bit on ‘Q’, ‘X’ and ‘Z’ but frankly everyone cheats on those letters. Otherwise I think I’ve managed to put together a fairly satisfying alphabetical compendium of CDs from that era.
Anyway, that’s what I’ll be doing from tomorrow. Feel free to join me on my second annual melodious odyssey.
It’s far from compulsory.
