Grey skies.

Biting chill.

Frosty pavements.


On a side note, my blog here at WordPress reaches its eighth birthday this week.

In a couple of months’ time, I will have been blogging for eight years. I chose WordPress and believe that it beats all other blogging platforms. Initially sceptical of blogging, I have posted regularly during that time, though not always in the last couple of years.

So what do I like about blogging, and WordPress in particular?

It seems a great opportunity for self-expression, a haven for people in the creative arts – and free, of course. WordPress offers plenty of space. Bloggers meet other bloggers online, receive and give feedback. Blogging is a form of publishing, so a blogging platform provides the writer/artist with a space to share their work. Crucially, WordPress gives the blogger the tools to create a static webpage with the option of having the blog (recommended) as the landing page. I’ve tried to make my blog a website too, with links to music files.

As the year draws to a close, I need to make some important decisions regarding my current novel and revise accordingly, but I will continue updating my WordPress blog and look forward to many more years of doing so.

I haven’t posted for a while.  The Internet connection played up.  Plus, there were other reasons, some personal.  Also, I have a busy schedule learning four languages, writing/editing a novel, and polishing up advanced piano repertoire.

And my work of course.

Perhaps the chief reason for the reduced blog articles is, I’ve kept this site running for seven years ago and have reached the point where I don’t know what else to say.  No doubt, I will continue blogging and think of new views to express.

Happy Blogging!

I’m less than a month away from my sixth year anniversary of starting a blog at WordPress. During those years, I’ve blogged on a regular basic on subjects such as writing, music, photography and the performing arts, although I’ve posted less these last twelve months.  I intend to keep on blogging.

 So what are my general thoughts about the blogging process and WordPress?
  • Mostly excellent.
  • Completely free, unless someone requires additional services.
  • WordPress one of the best – if not, the best.
  • Ability to create more traditional websites using WordPress.
  • Great layout.
  • Read other blogs and meet interesting people online.
  • Powerful publishing platform.
  • Most important of all, you make the blog what you want it to be.
The disadvantages? I can think of just one. Difficult to maintain the blog.
Here’s to another six years of blogging!
