There was a time where blogging was the only thing I ever wanted to do. I think this was also perhaps one of the most creative times in my life, but I also think it came from the fact that blogs were popular, and the old Tnoughts.com was in its hey-day.
Now I am older, not the wiser though, and the world has changed and I have somewhat changed myself. It is weird how I am part of a generation that fondly remembers and cherishes technological fads, but that is what I guess comes from being surrounded by it 24/7.
The world is now facing a pandemic, virus taking thousands of lives a day, and I have decided to give blogging another shot. I don’t know whether it is fact that I have to remain home more, or there is some subconscious desire to ease my loneliness by seeking online validation, but I have the sudden urge to just share and vent my non-important thoughts, feelings and ideas to someone out there. Granted, I could do all these things on social media sites, but I just find them too fast paced and busy for what I want to do. Something slower pace, something familiar, something that used to be second nature to me felt more of a better fit than a small limited post that would disappear into the confused mess of a void that is social media.
So, hi again. My name is Xander and I am hoping that I will reignite the joy that blogging once gave me.
