I think it is very important to remember why we started blogging in the first place. An ego trip, quite possibly but, as the project evolves you, as the author, are taken on an adventure, pushing through boundaries which previously you never knew existed. It is that aspect which means the most to me, as an individual, and I will continue to offer my spin on subjects broad and wide, all the time I derive enjoyment from the exercise. After all, this is a form of recreation - not my job! It matters not a jot if my output is diminished due to lack of enthusiasm or material, if I need a break I simply take one. Of Esox was started from the ashes left by my Non-conformist original. It's been a fabulous voyage into a virtual world inhabited by real people, many of whom have become "mates". I've been entertained and inspired by the writing and photos of so many individuals, none of whom I'm ever likely to meet.
So what if the format is outdated and has now become the domain of the over fifties. It might no longer be cutting edge, yet no reason to abandon it completely. All the time bloggers are using the written word to convey their thoughts the platform remains a superb facility by which individuals can offer their own slant on the things that make them tick. Who knows, someone, somewhere, might just be inspired by your words and start looking at the world from a different perspective? I certainly never thought "big skies" would have such an impact until a certain Mr Gale offered his input.
