This prompt from WordPress “Daily Prompt: Goals” dropped into my email the other day. This one got me thinking. When I started this blog, I had an idea to create a personal storehouse to help Lori and I remember our various adventures and share them with our friends in some way. I held to this for a while and then, miracle of miracles, people started reading about these adventures, people I didn’t know. I soon realized that WordPress is a very large community, filled with people with the same general idea, that being, I have something to share with the world. I started following blogs, getting involved in comments and, all the while watching my blog grow. As it grew, I began to dabble in other areas of my interests, music, sports and opinion. I eventually came to a crossroads in that I felt I was losing focus on my original thought for this blog. I even went so far as to create 3 other blogs, splitting my interests in 4. This did not work, we don’t get paid for this, and 4 blogs was like a full-time job. I folded up 2 of them and went to a music blog and the original. I figured out again that it was far too much work and folded up the music blog as well. Now I am what I am, and feeling pretty good about it.
I still have the urge to track back a bit and concentrate on the travel side more, but, I really love my music as well. No matter what I end up doing, I do know on thing. I can’t see me quitting. This is way too much fun.
Rock on my WordPress friends, and never miss an opportunity to go somewhere.
