It’s been fun and I’ve enjoyed it. My blog has never defined who I am nor has it ever become more important to me than my real life. It’s been a very enjoyable and challenging hobby.
Just recently, I had the occasion to look back a bit at my 5 years of blogging and I realized pretty quickly that I’ve said pretty much all I have to say on topics that I’ve written about in Rick & Paulette’s RV Travels. In fact, I’ve written about these topics all too often and even I’m getting bored with the same old, same old stuff.
As my high school English teacher used to say “redundant repetition of the same thing twice over and over again” is never a good thing. Repetition is a very easy hole in the road for any blogger to fall into and I want to avoid that. The easiest way I know of to avoid ‘holes in the road’ is to simply take a different road and that’s exactly what I intend to do.
I got my first computer job at 20 then broke my leg playing hockeyEven so, I could still drive my ‘57 Chevy and never missed a day of work
I’ve worked with computers of every sort since 1964 when I was just 20 years old. That’s some 50 years so I’m not about to give it up now especially when I find all this new technology even more exciting than when I began this journey with days spent endlessly sorting IBM 80 column punch cards. Although I’m giving up my RV blog, I’m not leaving ‘blogland’. I’m just taking a different road. I’ll be writing about tech news, photography and blogging as well as news and current events.
So, although my RV blog is toast, I hope to be back soon with a newly energized blog that I’m pretty sure I’m going to enjoy. I don’t expect to be blogging daily but I’m not setting any particular goals other than what I’ve always set as my main blogging objective – having fun and challenging myself. As always, who reads my blog will be up to each individual.
In the meantime, Rick & Paulette’s Travels will be available online for a few more days before I retire it and send it off into the everlasting depths of cyberspace. I’ll figure out a way to let everyone know about my new blog as I expect to finalize my plans by the end of this week. You may like it or you may not – that’s o.k. Thanks to all of you who have made my RV blog such a wonderful, interesting and challenging experience.
Have a great Wednesday and thanks again for visiting!
