Ah, my poor, neglected blog. What does the future hold for it? I don’t know. I am kicking around a few ideas, not the least of which is giving up blogging altogether. I hate to do that but I have to figure out if the reason I hate to do it is mere sentimentality and wanting to retain the stuff I’ve already published or because I truly do want to have this here to write in. (If I quit, I will no longer continue to pay for a domain I’m not using, so the whole thing disappears. I would have all the entries backed up, of course, but they would just be archived somewhere on my computer.)
I just don’t know. I’m torn. I think I’ve been getting my fill of sharing with people on Facebook. Only problem is a lot of the stuff on Facebook isn’t permanent. My status updates, for example, disappear when they are bumped down my profile page, never to be seen again. I like having something I can go back and refer to later. But am I really going to start posting here every time a thought crosses my mind? Doubtful. At least on Facebook I get some feedback. That’s not entirely why I blog but it does encourage one to keep at it, and a lot of times I DO want feedback on something. The computer is the majority of the interaction I get with people. A lot of times I want to know what people think about a particular subject. This is not an indictment, incidentally. Simply an observation that (through my own neglect) not many people read this blog any more.
Any road, I have much to think about. Hopefully I will have an “ah-ha!” moment and all will be made clear.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I’d ask myself, is the cost worth the archivalness of a blog? This is, as you know full well, coming from someone whose blog (as if I ever wanted one) would fall dormant after the initial entry! Therefore, I would start a journal (don’t you have Microsoft Works Task Launcher? It has journal templates. ) and save it in “My Documents”. You can always post the items on which you want comments on Facebook.
