Here we go again

04/28/2014

2 weeks.  No posts.

I have my own questions regarding this, though this may be ridiculous.  I have seen many bloggers come and go, as I have seen many leave for months on end only to come back (OK I made that up but I have seen several bloggers go).

Of course, I feel I mist clarify something:  The reason for the lack of posts was not business.  The reason for the lack of posts was not that I had nothing to post about.  I had plenty of ideas and plenty of time to post them.  No, the reason I was not posting was likely related to boredom.  And here we say the phrase “Here we go again”.

It may feel like I am going to leave this blog again.  Before my break, I would assure you that this was not the case.  I am not so sure anymore.  I do not want to quit, but I am not doing anything about it.

I will try to post more.  I am posting this so that I will post more, for it is more likely for me to do something if I tell the world I will do it.  However, since I don’t get any viewers that I am aware of, I don’t think this will be a very strong motive.  If I am going to continue blogging until I get another viewer, I will have to start with my own motive, as many others have done, I am sure.

On a somewhat related note, I should learn to include tags with my post.  I will learn to do so when I am motivated to – the less the work required, the less motivation required.  For example, if someone just explains it to me in the comments, I will learn it much faster than if I have to wait for a day when the motivation is just right in order for me to look up how to use tags.  Good day!


Another memory

04/14/2014

And so ends the set of posts where the title has a deeper meaning when read with the post.  Perhaps I will make a new category for those one day.  If that happens, I might even continue writing like that as an art form every once in a while.

This will not be a blog post about another memory that I have obtained of the past.  No, this memory is one of something that happened yesterday.

When I went to my dashboard to write my post, I noticed that I got a viewer on April 9.  I haven’t gotten a viewer since September 30, 2013.  Of course, at that point, I was not posting regularly.  This viewer viewed my website five times, he did.  I acknowledge this viewer.  

It is slightly surprising that I find another viewer so quickly after I re-start my blogging.  Perhaps it was pure luck, but it could also have been someone who knew that I started posting again.  If you are this viewer, please stand up (comment).


And so it seems

04/13/2014

…that I’ve missed another day.  I did indeed have some ideas for what to blog about for the past few days, but I ended up not posting for some reason.

Ah, as it seems that I have also reverted to my old, boring writing style (and from this you can see this is stream of consciousness writing).  I state the facts in sentences with grammar without adding any artistic licence.  Well, let’s start again, shall we?

The title.  For the past few posts, I have used the title in some way in the blog post.  The title seemed to work completely fine as a title itself, but the title always had a deeper meaning when it was read in the context of the blog.  Today, the title was not as OK by itself, but it did lend itself nicely to the first sentence of this blog post.  This is not satisfactory, is it?

Another question that I feel I need to answer:  Am I bored of blogging?  The answer is partially yes and partially no.  By this, I mean that I would prefer blogging to some other things that are more boring (otherwise I wouldn’t be blogging right now; I don’t have any comments, so I feel no obligation to continue blogging).  In addition, I do feel slightly rejuvenated by blogging.  I remember the good days when I blogged rather often.  I do admit I would often re-blog what other people had blogged, partially because my paint pictures were not uploading correctly.  I hope I got that fixed.  To test that, here is a nice picture of a RPS-25 match to end the post:

Another day

04/09/2014

Another day, another dollar, they say.  Another day, another dollar, I say.  But I mean it in a different way.

They say another dollar whenever nothing new happens: the dollar is normal.  But my dollar is not just another dollar.  Today’s dollar is a symbol for something that exists.

I did not recall before today the time a few years back when I knew someone I believe I have re-met today.  No words exchanged, only looks.  I do not believe either of us were sure that the other was the same one, if we are indeed the people who had met so long ago.  And yes, I did meet this someone in the time while I was still blogging consistently, or so I believe.

The world is a busy place, no doubt.  That was indeed the reason we did not speak to each other.  Was it so busy that we could not have?  I sure we could have, or, as one can say, it was not so busy  that no time was potentially possible for conversation.  So why did we not?  The answer should be obvious.  Hence, we are still not sure if we are the two who had met so long ago.  But just because we did not converse does not mean no memories were gained.  No, for the dollar I received today was the memory of an average blogging day.

Another day, another dollar.  It seems to be a goal, you could say, to gain another metaphorical dollar each day.  It would certainly be nice to just know what life was like in those days, for, though I feel I remember it well, the memories I have gained today show me that I do not.


Another try

04/08/2014

December 2, 2011. That is the date that the last and only post on this blog was posted. I have not visited my own blog since.

The past is the past, but the past is not one to forget. This is what I must learn, for so much has been forgotten. The past feels so good now that it has passed; as Jean de La Bruyère said, “Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think.”

For example, Greatstockmarket has not been deleted for some reason. I believe it was because I did not know how to delete it. After that month, I do not think I tried to delete it because I forgot about it. The blog has its meaning to me, though I will not update it.

Another example: “the post cluster!”  There are 2 categories on this blog when I posted it on April 8, 2014.  They are called “1” and “the post cluster!”  I believe I tried deleting the category called “1” multiple times without success and I just made “the post cluster!”  in order to put the posts in a category.  To put how much I have forgotten into perspective, I used to be an active member of the Bloons Wiki.  I made edits frequently and one thing I remember quite a bit was the category “All Pages”.  I just looked up my account on this wiki.  I joined about 2 months after I quit this blog, though I thought it may have influenced my decision of making “the post cluster!”

December 2, 2011. This was about 2 1/3 years ago. I claim I do not remember anything that happened in the years 2010 or 2011. This was true before today, the day that I learned that I wrote that post during that year. Personally, I thought I had written it earlier.

As a result, I will try again to blog. This will be less faithful than I had when I made this blog, I believe, but my history has its value to me. If anyone reading this post has any questions about anything, be it a motivation for an action all those years ago or a personal question, ask it in the comments section and I may answer it.

And do let me know if any of you have seen me since December 2, 2011.
