I happened upon a bunch of old blog entries (2007-2012) from the first iteration of “The Ear of the Mind”. When I started occasionally blogging again a couple of years ago I moved the operation to WordPress with better results. It was fun to look over the old posts and it occurred to me that I really enjoyed doing it. I’m not sure why I stopped…that’s not exactly true. I’m pretty sure I stopped because blogging made less sense in the world of social media. At least, so I thought.
Could it be that right now the long-form blog is more important? I know that for me, writing a post for this platform feels quite different than writing a Facebook post or an Instagram caption. I mentioned in last week’s post that this feels calmer for me.
Since my last post, I took about a week off of social media and am now back on. The week I was off felt wonderful. To be honest, the only reason I came back was to do some promotion of my new CD that is releasing later this month.
I’m going to have to see if I can have an effective home here and on my website. We’ll see what happens…
If you’re inclined, here is a link to the old digs. Enjoy!
