A Conundrum of Bloggy Proportions

Posted by Bill Nance on February 6, 2010

I have been getting a lot of hits on this page in the last couple of months, mostly referring from other places where I post thoughts, argue points, etc.

I have been doing that (writing on other forums), primarily, rather than writing blog posts.

This is for a couple of reasons:

First, I don’t want to copy/paste someone else’s  comments from a message board or topic forum and then have a discussion with myself on the blog. I won’t learn anything and the original writer hasn’t given me permission to do so.

Secondly, the things I’m inclined to write about are varied as can be. They range from ethics to guns, to civil rights and the wonderful personality of our dogs.  I’m neither a well-known person, widely published by other organizations, nor am I a specialist that can write volumes on a niche topic. Those are great things, but it’s not me.

As much as I like to write about guns, there’s only so much I can write that’s not a rip-off of someone else or hasn’t been said elsewhere better than I’m likely to present it.

I’m tempted to let the entire blog just die when it comes to renewal time. But I would like your feedback.

    Surely the combo of all that you said – the basic make-up that is you – is why we follow you r blog?

    I appreciate your views on a number of things and I think I’m old enough and ugly enough to ignore the stuff I don’t like or find irrelevant to me.

    Keep up the blogging, it might just be a good way to straighten out your thoughts.

    Jumblerant: Thanks for your input and the compliment. Renewal time isn’t coming up for a while yet, so I’m keeping my options open.

    I will say you are the only left-leaning blog that graces my far right existance. And I do mean that in the best sense. You keep posting, I’ll keep reading. If you have better things to do, that’s also cool.
