In a post I wrote a few days ago, I mentioned that I was trying to declutter my digital life by cutting out stuff and trying to simplify my online life. I started by cutting out Twitter, which hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be. I’m now four days into not using Twitter, and I haven’t even thought about it. I’m actually quite surprised. I’ve been filling the time I would normally spend on Twitter by reading, and the results have been great.
While trying to decide what to do next, I was sitting on Tumblr looking at my blog. I had started it up again and used Tumblr as the platform for it because of the simplicity. However, I don’t like hosting a blog on a platform controlled by others, so I decided it was time to bring back the blog on my own domain using software like WordPress to host my own content. So that is where I am. I just migrated my posts from Tumblr to my WordPress software. I prefer to have my own platform.
I’ll admit it will be a bit more difficult to get readers, but I’m not entirely doing this just so others can read it. Sure, some people will, but it is more of a place for me to publicly write stuff down in the hopes that maybe someone out there somewhere may benefit from it. If no one ever does then it only benefits myself as I work on my writing. The best part is this is my little place on the Internet to do what I want. I don’t have to worry about some arbitrary person deciding that the stuff I do is suddenly wrong and have my stuff removed or block. I control what goes on here.
If you are new to my blog, you will find that I am very random in what I write. I don’t really have a theme for the blog other than the thoughts and impressions that come from my own mind, hence the title of the blog. When I get the whim to share something, I will post it. I encourage you to stick around and see what I share.
