Having decided to stop writing thisissixty.blog , I’ve found myself missing it over the past couple of weeks. Things would happen and I’d be thinking how I might write about them…then I’d remember that I’d cancelled my domain and the WordPress account. Fortunately they were paid up to April so it was just a case of changing the settings on each to ‘auto renew’. So here I am, back again. I’ve probably lost dozens of readers but hey-ho, lesson learned: I like to blog.
But the reasons for giving up are still here – my time is still stretched. More stretched in fact as I am working a few extra hours. I’ve not agreed to be contracted for these but to do the job as well I want to do it, my three long mornings are rarely enough. I’m going in half an hour earlier and working half an hour (or so) later. So a new blog strategy is needed – one where I feel less pressured to write (my own pressure of course, there’s no prescribed level of contribution but i’d been feeling that if I didn’t post three times a week, I’d somehow failed my own self-imposed standard. The plan is one post per week – at the weekend. It’s still thisissixty.blog to log in, but you may have noticed the new title on the front page: This is Sixty at the Weekend
I may, of course, pop in the extra one here and there, but telling everyone that I intend posting only once a week already seems to have lightened the load. It’s good to be back.
