Those who say blogging is dead doesn’t know what they are talking about. WordPress people would have something to say about that. Blogging is life, blogging is a second religion, blogging is good. Right now its where I hang my social hat.

YAFB – Yet Another Facebook Break

I am taking yet another Facebook break. I have discovered its hard to be yourself there and control who sees what you want to keep private. Yes, I know my blog is open for all to see but the one thing about my blog is that I pay for domain registration and the premium package through WordPress.com. It is important that I have total control over what I say, my content and even who sees these words.

My connections on Twitter and Instagram will not change. You can connect with both through the widgets on the right. Connect with me if you wish there.

A Thanksgiving Thought #thanksgiving

AAA-2016-Thanksgiving-Travel-Forecast-610x330

Today in America its Thanksgiving and its a time of feasting, family, friends and hopefully fun. It’s a tradition that has spanned generations. People coming together to express what they are thankful for is the rule of the day.

Yes, this holiday is not without its baggage. Sure there are stories of mistreatment and anguish in recorded history. We cannot ignore those facts because it would not be respectful to those who have suffered.

However, we can remember the problematic stuff and forge a way forward that recognizes the best of what Thanksgiving can be. In the times in which we live its good to have something positive to say and to remember the good times in our lives.

For many, it’s hard to be thankful and that is where we can come in to help provide experiences that they can hold onto.

I believe this holiday is one of redemption and renewal for something good. Happy Thanksgiving to each of you, far and wide.

Changed My Linux Distro Again, Welcome Back to #Xubuntu

Inspired by fellow blogger Robin I have switched my Linux distribution back to Xubuntu 18.04 from Ubuntu 19.04. This is due in part to Ubuntu not wanting to load properly. Xubuntu also uses fewer system resources and is very customizable without a lot of tweaking. I added a few apps for audio, photo management, photo editing, a calendar that syncs with Google and a few other things. I can always add more things as I need it too. Like Robin said its like coming home to a familiar neighborhood.

You Haven’t Written Anything Yet

This popped up on my WordPress composer and it got me to thinking about writing something. Is writing nothing sometimes better than writing something just to write something. This very post could be described as just posting for the sake of posting. However writing is a sacred thing to many and quality of posts are better than quantity.

It is amazing what can inspire you to write about like this notification. Interesting.

Then there is this where WordPress is encouraging its members to keep on blogging. A philosophy I can get behind.
