I have to admit that I was a little more than surprised when I saw that Ben had decided to reformat and revive Thoughts. I’d first believed it was a bad idea, but the more I thought about it, the more the idea grew on me as a good thing.
I’ve met a great many bloggers over the years, many of them I met here. This was, after all, the first social media blogging site I ever joined. I joined it on the intent of promoting products, since I was trying my hand as an affiliate marketer.
I made my first post, and about 5 minutes later I received an email from ben, he told me I was welcome to continue at Thoughts, but the post I made was considered spam, and would have to come down!
Well, I didn’t have a problem with that, so I took it down.I’d always enjoyed writing, and decided to stick around. I made some great friends, and the very first good friend I made on thoughts was a gentleman whose screen name was Rubert. A great man, miss old Rupert!
Many of those I met her those many years ago, I’ve come across several on other sites. The sad thing about it is all those sites never had the same feel as the original Thoughts had.
I guess I can consider myself a newbie Again!
Thoughts was a special place, and Bens vision or philosophy of One Love was what made it that way. Yup, I’ve never came across anther site quite like the original Thoughts.
I do most of my posting on my own personal site now, I don’t get a lot of traffic, I’d say my traffic is what we’d consider slim to none, but I enjoy writing, it’s my own site, and I can write and say what I like, so at least that’s a plus. If you’d like to stop in and say Hi! sometime, my door is always open at: Skip Online Now!
Since we are all hunkered down because of a global pandemic, I would think that many people are considering taking up some sort of hobby. I’d considered basket weaving, but changed my mind.
I then considered cooking, but there were too many fires. I’m kidding, I’m an excellent cook, but you just can’t keep making food continuously. So at the moment, I’m looking into ways to be creative with toilet paper. I figure when this is all over, all those hoarders who have been continuously stock piling toilet paper will be looking for ways to make some use of it, besides the obvious use, of course.
So, my obvious choice to keep busy is writing/blogging. I write at a few places besides my own blog. Hubpages.com is something some of you reading might consider, besides being a platform to see your blog posts online, they have a system set up that you can create a small income from your writing. They incorporate google adsense, and Amazon products throughout your posts.
There is a Social site similar to Facebook, called MEWE you may want to check out, although I’m not a fan, many are joining. I’ve tuned out from Twitter, besides the non stop political posts, it is now all about the Covid-19 virus, and I have to say it gets very depressing.
So, like I said, I will continue posting here and there. I just wanted to say I’m glad Ben has reopened Thoughts. This was always a great place, I hope it returns to what it once was. below, a little video I put together for my site.
