Won’t be long now before I’ll officially kick off the weekend. I’ll hop into the car, drive up the coast and go visit one of my favorite places in the world.
I’ll wander through the hills by myself and stop every now and then to listen for the echoes of the past and think about the people that once walked through those places with me as well as some who should be there now.
Stop, look and listen because it is a place that helped make me who I am now. The site of some transformative moments, most of them good but there are a few that aren’t what you would call nicer memories.
So be it, that is part of life.
Foreplay Is Overrated
That is a reference toÂ How I Used Bad Headlines and Jedi Mind Tricks To Make A Billion From Blogging. It is a post I wrote I while back that just reminds me about how cyclical blogging is.
The more things change the more they stay the same.
Not going to turn this post into any sort of rant about social media or how I think life should be. It is just the contribution for the daily posts that come with NaBloPomo and as such it is a brief snapshot of my thoughts.
But I will mention again for those who are new that I mess around with headlines because I get tired of a lot of what I read and the focus on creating “perfect headlines” so that people will read bores me.
Write good content. Tell a good story and people will read.
It is a marathon and not a sprint.
The Greatest Posts Ever Written
I thought about scheduling a post for tomorrow containing myÂ greatest hitsÂ Â but decided against it. Primary reason is because I am short on time and I don’t know what posts to include.
There are theÂ usualÂ ones that I tend to include so that people get a sense of what I write and share here but I think it is probably time to take a hard look at those and see if some are played out or if there are new ones that merit inclusion.
Probably a good time to review my About Me page and see if that should be updated too. But can’t do any of that now ‘cuz the Traveling Jack show is about to leave and I need to run.
There is a beach that needs my attention. If I remember I’ll snap a shot of the water and share it with you later, but no promises because that part of the trip is supposed to be for me to sit and chill out.
Be good to each other and I’ll be back before you know it.
Or I won’t.
Either way, be nice.
