(Probably) My Last Blog Entry

Untitled

It’s been a good run–well over 200 posts–but I think it’s time to hang up my spurs as a blogger. The truth is, as I age I’m less interested in writing blog posts and fewer people are interested in reading them. At one time blogging, as much of the Internet, was new and fresh, but today blogging seems a bit stale, with the exception of those who write specialty blogs. The generalist has been left behind in the way small towns have been forgotten in the migration to cities.

I would very much like to thank those of you who took the time to read my musings. Your comments and feedback have helped me along the way. If you’re interested in staying in touch, you’ll find me on Facebook.

In fact, Facebook has become my new equivalent of blogging. On Facebook I can post and repost interesting articles, thoughts, and humour, and it reaches more people than Silver Bullets ever could.

Although I have a Twitter account, I don’t tweet much. I don’t find myself simpatico with the service as a communication tool, though I like it as a newsfeed for various publications.

My activity on Flickr will pick up now that winter is finishing and it’s comfortable to get out with my cameras again. I also keep a modest set of scientific and engineering images in Pinterest.

Reading and music occupy much of my time these days, especially guitar playing. A new MacKenzie and Marr parlour guitar (Opeongo model) is my latest acquisition.

So, in all probability, this is my last post. I leave the door slightly ajar because … who knows? Thanks again for taking the time to read my posts.

May good light follow you always.

  1. Thanks for leaving the door open just a crack, Gene … one never knows what might sneak out – or in!

  2. Add my name to those who are glad you’re leaving the door open a crack. I always enjoyed reading the things you wrote … and selfishly hope for a few more.

    1. Thanks, Ron. I will be looking for different writing vehicles. I post a lot on Facebook.

      1. (sigh) I come back to your blog often, Gene, hoping to find some more of your wonderful words. I use Facebook, too, but I’m not overly fond of it.

        Miss your comments (sigh again).

        – Ron Herron
